Major single-source subsea maintenance support contract for James Fisher Offshore.

A valued long-term relationship with a major subsea contractor has resulted in James Fisher Offshore (JFO) being awarded a contract to be sole supplier of inspection, repair and maintenance (IRM) campaigns in the North Sea.

As a respected specialist equipment and personnel provider for subsea and topside projects, JFO will now be providing full back-deck and subsea tooling equipment including cutting, tooling and diving spreads, marine cranes as well as diver dredge and subsea cleaning spreads for the duration of a significant 170-day summer campaign.

This contract seals JFO’s strong position as the only company in this sector that can provide such a wide spread of services, setting it apart from its competitors. These smart, integrated packages deliver reduced project costs and improved operational efficiency and make JFO a strong contender for future contracts along these lines in Asia and the Gulf of Mexico.

JFO has long been a trusted provider to the subsea industry, but managing director, Jack Davidson and business development manager, Chris Reid have been working extensively with Ian Hughes at sister company, James Fisher Marine Services to pull together the concept of an integrated full-service offering for some time.

As a consequence, the client benefits from equipment efficiencies and the reassuring knowledge that their team can pick up the phone at any time and have their needs catered for by JFO’s dedicated project team.

Chris Reid says:

"We have developed an excellent relationship with this client over a number of years, with JFO developing bespoke equipment spreads and services to ensure projects are efficient and safe.

"Our unique way of operating enables us to be very responsive to our clients' needs, with the on-going IRM campaigns in the North Sea being a perfect example. We look forward to continuing working together throughout the summer and beyond."
