Ardent, Vernicos and EPE form Mediterranean Pact

Maritime services provider, Ardent, Vernicos Tugs and Salvage, a greek-based tug & salvage service provider and Environmental Protection Engineering (EPE) a greek-based oil spill response provider, have formally partnered for future operations within Eastern Mediterranean and the adjacent waters.

The three companies signed a cooperation agreement in March 2018 to work together on future opportunities and at the same time retain their own corporate identities.

This cooperation strategically combines salvage, emergency response and wreck removal company with the provider of tugs and pollution control expert in the region.

“Ardent brings to the partnership experience in the world’s most technically challenging salvage and wreck removal jobs in history, along with a cache of specialized, proprietary equipment – which will now be strategically stored at Vernicos’ various depots, including Perama,“ said Dimitris Theodorou Ardent’s director EMEA.

“The Alliance allows us to be the most effective provider of marine emergency response services in the region, providing an integrated network of floating assets as well as specialized equipment. It is a joint effort to pro-actively protect our seas by providing emergency response in the Eastern Mediterranean and surrounding regions,” said Jean Benzonana, Vernicos Tugs CEO.

“The synergies between the three companies will guarantee providing timely solutions in responding to marine incidents in the area of Eastern Mediterranean, and safeguarding the environment at the same time,” said Vasilis Mamaloukas, EPE director.
