Osiris now has the capability to support east coast offshore renewable projects locally through its shoreside support base in Grimsby.
Osiris, part of the James Fisher and Sons plc, now has access to the Port of Grimsby East with James Fisher's new shoreside support base. Chosen due to the significant investment made in the area in recent years and the growing presence of renewable energy companies, the shoreside support base is an attractive location to service growing offshore renewable inspection, repair and maintenance scopes. The facility provides a local presence to be able to respond quickly to clients' needs through the rapid and efficient mobilisation/demobilisation of vessels and equipment including: mass flow excavation systems, air and Nitrox diving spreads, ROV spreads, offshore accommodation modules and other specialist containerised marine and subsea assets and equipment.
Osiris has taken immediate advantage by placing its Cougar-XT ROV in situ for quick mobilisation, along with an on-site support team ready for rapid deployment of assets when required. James Fisher Marine Services Ltd (JFMS), sister company of Osiris, has continued its commitment to growth by utilising desk space to support east coast operations.
Aiden West, managing director of diving operations commented, “To have our equipment on-site is a huge step forward for us. The ability to mobilise our assets close to wind farm developments off the east coast means we can respond quickly and efficiently to our customers."
The Grimsby base is part of the vision and expansion of the group which is strategically positioned to help service the core requirements of the offshore renewable industry. Located close to owners, operators and major energy companies, the site offers a platform to deliver the wide scope of projects and services presented by the James Fisher group.
