Diversifying the business

For Atlantic Offshore, emergency response has been the core business since the inception of the company, but we have recently expanded into new and related segments.

Ocean Osprey, one of our newest and well equipped ERRVs, has been chartered by DEFRA for Offshore Patrol work in the North Sea. The newly acquired vessel Ocean Dee has commenced a contract with Shearwater Geoservices for seismic Support.

The securing of new contracts for these vessels will further grow our competence, expand the Company’s markets and make the business even more solid.

Reduced Emission

Reduced Emission

Ocean Star and Ocean Art have both been upgraded to seamless shore-connection power supply. This means that there are no use of aux.engines when in port, and there will be zero emission even when the vessels are fully operational; loading, discharging and cargo operation. In Norwegian ports, these vessels now only use renewable energy. This will further reduce already low emission.
