Shipping News Feature

UK – Aberdeen based Bibby Offshore UK Ltd, a subsidiary of the shipping group Bibby Line, is about to embark on a five-year growth plan which it says will see the expansion of its fleet of offshore construction vessels and remotely operated underwater vehicle (ROV) systems. To support the move the company has signed a non-exclusive ship agency services contract with international logistics group GAC covering all ports in the UK and making the Dubai headquartered marine service supplier its first choice of provider elsewhere globally.

Under the agreement, operations will be managed and overseen by GAC UK's Director of Energy Services, Steve Gibson. In addition to ship agency, GAC will also provide a range of complementary services such as bunker fuel supplies and training, and its team in Aberdeen will be available to meet Bibby's vessel and onshore logistics requirements wherever they berth - in the UK or overseas.
