Offshore staff

ABU DHABI, UAEGulf Marine Services (GMS) has completed legal documentation for the charter of one of its vessels.

The new contract is for a large-class vessel to support maintenance work and is expected to begin in 2Q 2017 with a duration of 18 months (including options).

News of the charter was first released by GMS in August.     

CEO Duncan Anderson said that the company’s “self-propelled vessels are significantly more economical and time-efficient than conventional support vessels without self-propulsion. 

“This, combined with the wide range of services we can provide from the decks of our vessels is becoming more important to our clients seeking to carry out safe, efficient and cost-effective operations.”
