Asso.subsea’s specialized offshore & subsea fleet is managed by the Group’s in-house Marine Division, consisting of a duly certified ship management entity staffed by experienced marine professionals. The Marine Division’s track record in the management of offshore & subsea tonnage extends back to the mid-90s when the Group acquired its first offshore support vessel, the 1976-built Argo (ex. Maersk Plotter).
The ship management entity is part of the Group’s ISO 9001/14001/45001 scope of certification and holds Documents of Compliance with the International Safety Management Code (ISM) by both the Greek and Cypriot Flag Administrations. It is also a member of the IMCA Marine Division, BIMCO and various other maritime organizations and bodies.
The fleet is crewed through an exclusive and steadily growing pool of, currently, around 250 experienced Greek seafarers who undergo regular training and evaluation by the Crewing and HR departments. The necessary DPOs and certified crane operators form part of this seafarer pool, whereas the Group strives to provide the highest possible welfare standards onboard, for crew and project personnel alike. As a rule, seafarers are rotated around all the Group’s vessels for better familiarization, which in turn offers maximum flexibility in crew deployment.
The vessels making up this in-house fleet, are meticulously maintained, upgraded, converted and customized as necessary by the Marine Division to suit each work scope that is assigned to them. Asso.subsea is continuously upgrading its fleet in terms of age and size, by regularly acquiring modern tonnage either to complement or to replace older units. This policy provides for the continuous improvement of onboard welfare, environmental compliance and sustainability, by the introduction of units assigned with the “Crew Habitability” and “Environmental” Class notations.
