Global Energy, Bergen Group Partner to Strengthen Norwegian Ties

Global Energy Group has joined forces with Bergen Group to further strengthen its Norwegian links and develop new opportunities.

Global Energy Group has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the Hanoytangen division of Bergen Group Offshore. The MOU partnership will bring mutual benefits to both Groups with a key aim of strengthening the firms' profiles in the UK and Norwegian offshore market.

Norway-based Bergen Group is a maritime industrial company with a predominant focus on the offshore industry and special-purpose vessels.

Bill Hamilton, Vice Chairman of Global Energy Group, said, "By working closely with Bergen Group Offshore, we aim to further expand our presence in the Norwegian market and bring further business into Bergen Yard which is extremely high quality and in a prime location with easy access to the main shipping fairway along the Norwegian coast.

"Not only does the yard provide all of the key services we would require quayside, it also has five quays featuring 'Roll-On, Roll-Off' (RORO) ramps, no weight limitations and good deepwater facilities with 'at-shore' mooring facilities at depths from 60-90 meters.

"Further to this, Bergen Group's excellent storage, offices and accommodations offer a particularly attractive package to us and our client base. We look forward to working with Bergen Group Offshore's Hanoytangen for many years to come."

Tor Gjertsen, Project Manager for Bergen Group Offshore, also welcomed the MOU signing, "The intention of the agreement with Global Energy Group, which has an established reputation for quality and safety within the Inspection, Repair and Maintenance marketplace, is to increase our presence in the UK offshore market. Also, Global Energy's experience in working with other companies in Norway means that it is familiar with Bergen Group’s working culture and high standards of quality and commitment to health, safety and environment.

"Global Energy Group's experience combined with our first class facilities is a recipe for success and we look forward to a long and fruitful partnership."
