Global Marine Sets Up Presence in Port of Blyth

The Global Marine Group (GMG) has expanded its operations base in the United Kingdom to include the Port of Blyth, Northumberland.

Operating from the Port of Blyth, both of GMG’s two business units, CWind, which provides services to the offshore wind industry, and Global Marine, which provides fibre optic cable solutions to multiple sectors, will be able to offer regionally-focused support, resulting in faster mobilisation, greater flexibility and enhanced response times for customers, GMG explained.

Blyth will serve as a regional base for strategic asset management and modular equipment storage, as well as mobilization and deployment site for the GMG fleet. A number of GMG assets, including C.S. Sovereign and CS Recorder, multi-role DP2 vessels, will operate out of Blyth.

“It has been a pleasure to work with the Port of Blyth, which has been extremely supportive throughout our integration period,” said Ian Douglas, chief executive officer of Global Marine Group. “We expect that by operating in close physical proximity to our customers, suppliers and trusted partners, we will further strengthen our relationships with key market players and continue to reinforce our reputation for delivering projects safely, on time and to a high level of quality”

We are very pleased to have attracted a company with the profile of Global Marine Group to operate from the Port of Blyth,” said Martin Lawlor, chief executive of the Port of Blyth. “We view this as another critical step forward in our development as an offshore energy base. We believe building infrastructure and partnerships in a single location is the formula for growth and innovation in the sector.”
