Jumbo Offshore Appoints Middle East Partner as it Eyes Regional Expansion

Monday, February 19, 2024

Dutch heavy lift shipping and offshore transport and installation contractor Jumbo Offshore has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Sea Horizon Offshore Marine Services, which will act as its representative in the Middle East region.

Sea Horizon Offshore, with its broad network of local partners, will represent Jumbo Offshore to potential clients in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Qatar, and Saudi Arabia.

Its scope will also include commercial representation, supporting operations and providing project management on behalf of Jumbo Offshore during project execution in the region.

The MoU paves the way for Jumbo Offshore to provide increased support to the considerable offshore expansion planned in the area over the coming years, according to the companies.

“Through this MoU, we will provide the Middle East region with greater access to safe, high-quality transport and installation (T&I) solutions. Jumbo Offshore represents considerable added value to regional operators.

“Currently, much of the transport and installation work carried out in the region is performed using a combination of barge and lifting vessel. Jumbo Offshore’s vessels are ideally suited to perform the entire T&I scope from a single platform, offering a significant boost to efficiency,” said Danial Kaabi, Sea Horizon Offshore’s CEO.

The Jumbo Offshore fleet, which includes the Jumbo J-class vessels with a 1,800 t lifting capability, will support the regional offshore development with topside construction, light flex-lay, mooring installation and module installation, amongst other things.
