Inchcape Shipping Services (ISS), the world’s leading maritime services provider, has been selected to provide support logistics to the Jan De Nul Group for an offshore energy megaproject in Australia.
The Belgium-based Jan De Nul Group specialises in dredging operations around the world and has appointed ISS Australia as its agent for the importation of 15 vessels into North West Australia. The business also includes port agency, husbandry services and other logistics support.
Working as part of the Wheatstone project in the Northern Carnarvon Basin, one of Australia’s largest resource ventures, Jan De Nul will be involved in a pipeline stabilisation project. To date, eight vessels have already been imported into the country with a further seven vessels due to arrive between now and October 2013.
Says Danny Rees, General Manager, ISS Australia: “We are very pleased to be working with Jan De Nul on this important project and look forward to demonstrating ISS’ extensive capability in the offshore sector. Thanks also go to David Castellano, Regional General Manager and Chris Moore, Area General Manager – Western Australia and Northern Territories, for helping us secure this new business.”
