The Global Marine Group (GMG), a provider of offshore engineering services to the renewables, oil & gas, and telecommunications industries, has launched Global Offshore, a new business unit for trenching and power cable laying services to the oil & gas sector.

GMG said on Wednesday that Global Offshore would focus the staff, vessels, and subsea equipment on projects that include pipeline, cable and umbilical installation and trenching, platform-to-platform connectivity, and complete platform to subsea installation services.

The new business unit will operate from Aberdeen where Mike Daniel will lead the Global Offshore team as managing director. The team has previously worked on a variety of seabed projects for major global companies such as Shell and BP, including the installation of more than 470 power cables.

Global Offshore’s assets include the M/V Symphony, a multi-purpose vessel with an extensive 1,400m² deck space, two powerful and flexible Q1400 jet trenchers, and two work class remotely operated vehicles. Global Marine acquired these assets from Fugro in a transaction announced in October.

Depending on the needs of specific projects, Global Offshore will have access to GMG’s full capabilities and diverse fleet, including four specialist cable installation and repair vessels, four maintenance vessels, and 16 crew transport vessels.

Ian Douglas, CEO of Global Marine Group, said: “Offshore oil & gas customers, who often operate under demanding conditions, have always been important to the Global Marine Group. Adding industry leading and highly sought-after specialist trenching capabilities to our offering should create significant opportunities for our customers and the entire Global Marine Group for years to come.”

Global Offshore will exist alongside GMG business units Global Marine and CWind. Global Marine provides fiber-optic cable installation and maintenance solutions to global telecommunications providers. CWind delivers power cable and asset management services topside and subsea to the offshore renewables and utilities markets.
