Bluewater Opens Moscow Office
Bluewater Technical Support has recently opened a Business Development office in Moscow to strengthen Bluewater's position in Russia, and expand Bluewater's activities in both Russia and the countries around the Caspian and the Black Sea.
The services the new office will provide include Business Development, Studies, Engineering, Tenders, Project Execution and Operations Support. The newly appointed Business Development Manager Erwin Fijnaut will be based in Moscow in order to provide first-hand support. Jan-Thijs Maatman will continue to guide the strategic activities from the head office in the Netherlands.
"Excellent opportunities exist in Russia and the countries around the Caspian and the Black Sea. Bluewater is prepared to take the necessary steps to meet the projected demand for floating production systems and technology," commented Bluewater's President, Hugo Heerema. "Bluewater has a proven record with the Arctic Tower Loading Unit operation for Exxon offshore Sakhalin and the Tower Mooring System for Lukoil in the Caspian Sea that is presently under construction; and we are prepared for more such challenges."
The Bluewater group of companies has built a technological lead specializing in lease and operation of tanker-based Production and Storage (FPSO/FSO) systems, and has become a leading provider of advanced Single Point Mooring (SPM) systems. Bluewater operates worldwide with offices in The Netherlands, United Kingdom, United States, Nigeria, Angola, South Africa, Malaysia and China.
