Jifmar Offshore Services continues its expansion in Scotland with acquisition of the Shetland based company Delta Marine Ltd one year after taking over North West Marine.
VDC Offshore in France, North West Marine in Scotland and the signing of a partnership with Japanese shipowners Dokai Marine, Jifmar Offshore Services continues to expand.
Thanks to this acquisition, Jifmar will now operate a fleet of nearly 40 vessels worldwide. It will also reinforce its leading position in servicing the renewable and fish farming industries which are two areas in which Delta Marine is strongly active. With 2 DP vessels in the Delta Marine’s fleet, it is now 4 DP2 multicats and 8 DP1 vessels that JIFMAR is in a position to offer to its clients worldwide.
“With VOE Earl being the most powerful DP multicat currently on the market and the specific design of VOE Vanguard, we will be in a position to expand the range of services offered to our clients” says Jean-Michel Berud, Chairman of JIFMAR Offshore Services.
With the fleets of Delta Marine and North West Marine, the group is now operating 9 vessels under Scottish flag. Strong synergies will be created between North West Marine’s 27 years of experience as diving contractor, the state-of-the-art vessels from Delta Marine and the engineering support of JIFMAR Offshore Services. Thanks to that alliance, the group will reinforce its position as marine turnkey solution provider and improve its ability to answer specific needs from its clients.
“With JIFMAR well known engineering capabilities, we will now be in a position to offer a broader range of services to our clients” states Dave McNaughtan, CEO of Delta Marine.
