NMA extends validity of personal certificates

Norwegian Maritime Authority (NMA) extends the validity of personal certificates (CoP, CoC)

The validity of Norwegian Certificate of Proficiency and Certificate of Competency, are granted a general extended validity of up to 6 months. The individual seafarer will not be required to submit an application, due to challenges related to the coronavirus.

 

Separate guidelines for extension of Medical Certificate:

In cases where the situation with the coronavirus prevents a seafarer from renewing the Norwegian Medical Certificate,

the NMA will allow a seafarer to work with a Medical Certificate which has expired on the condition that:

– the period does not exceed 6 months, and

– the seaman holds an expired medical certificate of recent date.

Ocean Art receives award from Equinor

Wherever and whenever it operates, Atlantic Offshore seeks to set a role model example in sustainable reduction of environmental emissions and client costs. In 2018 and 2019 Ocean Art was awarded a prize from Equinor as the most fuel-efficient PSV in their operation.

In 2010 the company started to design and build new tonnage with an eye to the future. As responsible ship owners and managers the company has a duty to act to reduce environmental emissions, to demonstrate leadership and to play our part in creating a cleaner world for our shareholders and stakeholders. This started with the more fuel efficient and environmentally focused design of vessels and has now, in 2020, translated into a group wide change in culture embracing, defining and utilising technology as well as recognising the importance of human behaviours to help it to deliver tangible proof of delivery.

‘Walking the talk,’ we are committed to driving change no matter whether that is providing seamless vessel shore power connections enabling zero emissions in port or investing in the latest hybrid propulsion systems, reducing CO2 emissions by 15% and fuel consumption by 30%. The company is actively sharing lessons learned across the group so that our customers can benefit from all that we do.

Atlantic Offshore. Powered by passion, driven by safety and proud of what we are doing to help our environment.
