Asco secures west Africa vessel monitoring deals worth £2.5m

International offshore logistics firm Asco has tied up two deals worth £2.5 million in west Africa.

The Aberdeen-headquartered firm will provide its vessel monitoring service for preventing collisions to a pair of unspecified clients.

Its vessel monitoring service is coordinated from a dedicated marine operations centre in the Granite City.

Asco will also supply an entire field monitoring solution, including design, procurement, installation, maintenance and monitoring.

Asco marine operations manager Fraser Coleman said: “These contract awards are confirmation of the excellent service provision we already deliver and demonstrates our capabilities of multi-regional for vessel monitoring and collision risk management.

“Through advanced technology and our team of experienced mariners, we are able to provide a reliable and immediate service to clients anywhere in the world from our operations control room in Aberdeen, ensuring the best use of valuable marine resources.”

Asco energy transition manager Craig Revie said: “Interactions between vessels and offshore structures continues to represent a major accident hazard for the energy industry, and whilst surveillance systems using radar, AIS and cameras provide a real time picture of maritime activity, these are not always being operated and monitored to their full capabilities therefore increasing risk to assets.

“In summary, Asco’s dedicated monitoring service ensures that ship platform collisions and threats to subsea infrastructure do not go undetected.”

The business announced in December that it had been sold a consortium of investors, trading as Zander Topco, by DH Private Equity Partners for an undisclosed sum.

Oil and gas veteran Bob Keiller was also installed as non-executive chairman.
