“OSM Brazil have successfully mobilized our crew on board the FPSO Peregrino,” says Tommy Olofsen, Managing Director of OSM Crew Management.
OSM Maritime Group (OSM) began its journey with the Floating Production Storage Unit (FPSO) Peregrino back in early 2016. However, increased efforts and investments in Brazil have been ongoing since 2013 – with multiple office locations, and an EBN Certification that marks the company as a registered Brazilian Shipping Company, OSM have positioned themselves strategically for growth and support within the area.
Like OSM, Statoil have openly expressed their interest in prioritizing their efforts in Brazil; both organizations hope to support the area by raising local capacity for professional development, and with this project, OSM have been able to do just that.
“Creating new opportunities for professionals in the area has been a natural result of this project – we have secured more than 90 specialized offshore positions onboard the Peregrino” saysWalker Lima, OSM Brazil General Manager.
With all hands on deck, Olofsen stresses the importance of communication between teams to ensure a favourable result:
“Key to the success of this project is our commitment to continuous improvement. We will maintain close communication between both our on- and offshore teams in the hopes of predicting change and creating solutions to challenges before they arise.”
