This new location in the Imtech Marine network will open officially on April 25 and will provide services to international and locally based vessels and platform operators, such as electrical engineering support and emergency call out services. In the UK, Imtech Marine has offices in Newcastle, Glasgow and Aberdeen. The opening of the Aberdeen office brings Imtech Marine’s total number of service and outfitting centres to 89 worldwide.
Tom Simpson, managing director of Imtech Marine UK Ltd. points out; “Imtech Marine is expanding its involvement in the offshore industry by launching a new Aberdeen office to provide vessel and platform operators with a wider choice of services both in port as well as on the spot. We are in a unique position to provide services that are independent and multicard. Vessel owners and operators can rely on rapid, efficient response and the security of on-going, cost-effective support.”
The newly opened office will be a base for a team of engineers offering in-house and on-site engineering support for dry docking, new builds and conversions. In addition to providing services on a project only basis, Imtech Marine will offer Managed Services Agreements which cover both preventive and breakdown maintenance. This is in line with the strategy of Imtech Marine to offer life cycle management partnership, aiming to help ship owners reduce the total cost of ownership.
Imtech Marine UK offers a broad range of solutions, ranging from electrical and HVAC systems, power management (from generation to distribution), alarm & monitoring, electrical propulsion, dynamic positioning and navigation and communications systems. Being a full service provider, Imtech Marine takes care of custom design, engineering, system integration, installing and commissioning for all types of vessels and offshore platforms.
