THE EVOLVING SUPPLY CHAIN


A company that helps keep offshore wind technicians on the move has been welcomed to North East Lincolnshire as the latest element of the evolving supply chain.


PME Group has opened a base in Stallingborough, providing immediate access to crew transfer vessel engine servicing and repair.


LOCAL ASSISTANCE IN SET UP


Paul Vincent, Project Development Manager at PME Group, told how it had been a six-month task to set up the base. He thanked local North Sea Services’ vessel Operations Manager David Smith for his advice, help and introductions to Rachael Markham, of North East Lincolnshire Council’s economic development team and Lorraine Alexander of Grimsby Jobcentre Plus, who he also expressed gratitude.


David of North Sea Services commented: “We operate and maintain E.on’s vessels in Humber Gateway windfarm and we have been working with PME since the vessels went into service in 2014. Initially there was a certain geographic limitation with us being up here and PME being in Poole and Plymouth.”


“In the interim we have used other MAN agents, but never received the same standards of service we had seen from PME. As a company we are very pleased to see PME open this depot in our area.


HIGH EXPECTATIONS


“We are a demanding bunch. Our clients expect our vessels to be available at all times, we want the breakdowns fixed before they happen and servicing to occur so we don’t even know it has taken place.


“The engineers work to very, very high mechanical engineering standards, and PME keep them up-to-date with the latest innovation. I am looking forward to a closer partnership.”


An administrator and engineer will be permanently based at the facility, on Beel’s Road, North Moss Industrial Estate.


PROUD HISTORY


Ed Tucker, Customer Service Manager for MAN Engines & Components UK, said: “MAN has a proud history of being involved in marine diesels. The first ocean-going diesel powered engine was a MAN in 1912, and since then we have been at the forefront of marine diesel engines. We can only do that through partnership with service partners. We are only as good as our people on the ground, supporting our products and keeping our customers happy.
