Schat-Harding strengthens North Sea support

The world’s leading lifeboat and davit manufacturer Schat-Harding has strengthened its support for North Sea operators by opening new offices and service centres in Bergen and Stavanger. Both bases will focus on delivering in-service support and maintenance for lifeboats and davits in the North Sea.

“Our clients are the major North Sea oil and gas operators and they don’t just want to buy boats and davits,” says Petter Hernaes, Vice President, Nordic region, Schat-Harding Services. “They want to buy a lifetime of safe and trouble-free operation. Our Product life Cycle Management scheme and fleet and frame service agreements ensure that the major investments made by operators in lifesaving equipment are always maintained in ready to go condition. These new bases in Bergen and Stavanger will put our managers and service personnel closer to the offshore operators and the units they maintain.”

The Bergen office will initially be manned by Sales Manager Morten Holm and Norway’s Offshore Account Manager Johan H.Lyse.

The Stavanger office will be headed up by Project Manager Ivar B.Arnesen Jr, who will oversee a team of engineers and service personnel.

The two new bases will deliver a service and maintenance capability close to the main operating bases of the major North Sea operators. High quality servicing and spares will be quickly available for specialised offshore support vessels and offshore rigs and units. The local bases allow for swift mobilisation of resources which is very important for maintaining operations in the North Sea area.

Umoe Schat-Harding is the global market leader in marine life-saving systems and offers the largest worldwide service network in the industry. When designing, manufacturing and servicing, it provides lifetime support for a wide range of innovative lifeboats, davits, winches and rescue boats which all have one purpose: the safe evacuation of crews, passengers and offshore workers.
