ACCESS OFFSHORE MARINE – GRIMSBY


Access Offshore Marine provide a range of offshore services nationally including crew, potable drinking water, fuel and cargo transfers, towage, guard duties, survey and workboat operations using a number of different vessels.


If a particular type of vessel is not available from their own fleet they are sourced and chartered in, whether it is for a one day Met Buoy service or a longer term vibro-core survey or dredging project. The ability to find local boats often saves large mobilisation fees on short term contracts and also proves very cost effective when only occasional use is required.


SHORE BASED SERVICES


Offshore activities are enhanced with shore based services such as stores, supplies, logistics, storage, crane hire, port operations and marine co-ordination to give a complete package to clients allowing them to concentrate on their core business.


LATEST VESSEL AND LOCATION


Access Offshore Marine Limited’s latest vessel, Faithful, has gone straight to work transferring crew, equipment and supplies to vessels and barges in the Humber Estuary and on the Humber Gateway wind farm. Purchased for quick transfers, she is ideally located at their base in Royal Dock, Grimsby for fast transit around the estuary and to wind farms and dredging projects off the Lincolnshire and Yorkshire coasts. Urgent transfers have been organised at short notice on a number of occasions to keep projects running and prevent expensive downtime.


They are a young, forward thinking company committed to expanding their fleet and working with the offshore renewables sector over the coming years. Plans are already in place for a new wind cat to be built with proven reliability and considerably lower operating costs.
