A NEW DAWN


MAN ON A MISSION


I am delighted to introduce to you my next guest who I caught up with in transit betwixt Norfolk and the North East – it would seem that he is on a pulley system from A to B at the moment!


Dave Green, the owner of the newly formed Full Ahead Marine Services is a man on a mission – literally!


TENACITY


It takes a brave and tenacious person to set up shop, or should I say new business in today’s fiscally challenging times, however Dave has done just that.


SERENDIPITOUS


I am a believer in when people say that things are almost mapped out for us – yes we can choose the path, however Dave’s path seems to be positively serendipitous! – all roads leading to this new venture!


A LITTLE BACKGROUND


The son of a sea captain he absorbed this way of life by way of osmosis – saltwater is in his veins – so it was a natural calling to start a career early at sea and then join the Royal Navy thereafter.


Having left the Royal Navy and undertaken other maritime roles it was when he joined Green Marine Solutions for a contract in Teesside in the capacity of Marine Co- ordinator for Siemens on the Teesside project at Hartlepool, that his realisation and passion for the industry was irrefutably to be his vocation.


Having acquired invaluable experience and knowledge in providing all manner of tasks within the role at Hartlepool… to name but a few: ensuring the safety of personnel, tracking them whilst offshore, dealing with the daily progress reports and providing back room support for the management – a role in which he relished.


His one year contract completed at Green Marine Solutions also coincided with Siemens tendering for a Marine Operations requirement on the Westermost Rough Project – Enter: Dave and in his words he “took the plunge” applied for the project and successfully won the bid… and so henceforth his new venture was born!


WESTERMOST ROUGH


Working on this world first commercial 6 megawatt project for Siemens at the Westermost Rough wind farm allows Dave to showcase his dynamism and commitment to providing a first class service to his clients.


His role encompasses a wide range of responsibilities to ensure the project runs smoothly i.e…


• To help and prepare the site Marine Control Procedures and Emergency Response Plan


• To supervise and be the point of contact for Siemens for all aspects of their marine work


• The co-ordination of vessels and tracking of personnel movements


• Safety briefs and regular vessel inspections ensuring that all personnel are safe and vessel turn-around times are efficient and cost effective avoiding delays and hence extra cost


WITH GRATEFUL THANKS TO…. Dave is keen to point out that this opportunity has much to do with the experience gained at GMS and would like to thank them unreservedly for the opportunities he gained whilst working with them. It has been the springboard for so many things.
