Services and core business

Our capabilities cover all areas of offshore supply services – from rig moves and anchor handling to iceberg management and pollution control. Read more about our services here.

Our special focus area is high-end operations. For years, we have led the field in handling the extreme conditions of deep and ultra-deep water, where we provide anchor handling, support subsea operations and deliver all other supply services for platforms, rigs and barges.

We consider no challenge too great: whatever service you require, we have the experience and people to deliver a safe, reliable and cost-effective solution. In the high-end market, we offer a unique combination of powerful vessels, custom-made equipment and highly skilled crews. Our officers undergo rigorous training in the world's most advanced marine simulator, and our company's experience in this area is unmatched and prepare our crews to deal with the toughest environments 


Nothing is more important to us than having the trust of our customers. In our business, deals are often made with a handshake and a nod, and we wouldn't want it any other way.  We are constantly talking to our customers to better gauge their needs so we can plan and optimise our service accordingly. 

Our officers not only receive the best training in the industry, they are also instilled in our company culture of establishing close customer relationships. We want our customers to sleep easy, safe in the knowledge that their offshore operation is in the best possible hands.
