SME are continuing to expand their range of anchors to ensure that a wider range of geotechnical conditions can be accommodated to help drive down mooring costs across the blue economy sectors whether that be offshore floating wind, aquaculture, wave and tidal energy, ocean thermal energy, moorings, pontoons and civil engineering.
Jason Schofield, Managing Director of Green Marine commented: “This collaboration with SME, who have been a long-standing customer of Green Marine, provides the maritime sector a world class service that is second to none. This is an important step in our business growth strategy allowing us to offer additional marine operation services to the sector.”
Jason Hayman, the Managing Director of Sustainable Marine Energy commented: “This partnership is taking the next step in the anchoring journey SME has been on for the past few years. Having worked with Green Marine on operations in Orkney and the West Coast, we have been very impressed by the Green Marine team’s capabilities, so they were the obvious choice when we were looking for a delivery partner to offer our customers complete installed anchoring and mooring solutions.’’
