Maritime services company Bernhard Schulte Shipmanagement (BSM) has set up a new business unit to focus on the oil and gas and offshore energy renewables markets.
BSM said on Tuesday that the new company would support owners and operators globally by providing integrated third-party ship management services specifically to the offshore market.
The services include technical management, crew management, newbuilding supervision, fleet maintenance and repair, lay-up solutions, travel services, and software application solutions.
The company is currently active in the offshore segment, providing services to floating production units, offshore, and wind energy units as well as flotels.
Matthias Mueller, managing director of BSM Offshore, said: “This segment is focused on special operations and driven by different rules, so we decided to establish a dedicated expert team to specifically attend to the needs of the offshore market.”
“Combining the shipowners’ perspective with optimised processes, and the purchasing power we have as one of the world’s leading ship managers as well as an extensive array of complementary maritime services, BSM Offshore will be able to contribute to the safe, reliable and economic operations of our customers’ offshore business,” the company said.
