London - Ship management company V.Group has signed a contract with the logistics branch of Abu Dhabi National Oil Company, ADNOC Logistics & Services, in the United Arab Emirates, to provide crew management services to 93 offshore support vessels.
To support the contract, and to enable further expansion in the region, V.Group has opened a new Abu Dhabi office, which began operations in early August. “Today’s official opening is a true embodiment of one of our core values, which is ‘We Commit and Deliver’,” said Allan Falkenberg, managing director of crew management at V.Group. “We committed to ADNOC L&S that we would set up a team and be ready to provide crew management services for its fleet within 90 days, and I am proud to say we delivered.”
“We’re confident in V.Group’s ability to drive performance across our fleet,” said Nick Fisher, deputy CEO of ADNOC L&S, “The fact that they have set up an entire new team within 90 days is testament to their commitment and I’m looking forward to our collaboration in delivering efficient operations.”
Following a stabilisation period, which is scheduled to run until the end of 2019, the V.Group office will commence regular operations by providing to ADNOC L&S. V.Group then plans to expand its services in the region across all of its ship management and marine support services.
