The world’s market leader for offshore classification, ABS, announced the development of an offshore project development team to coordinate worldwide services for managing risk and verifying the integrity and safety of offshore facilities.
“Clients now have one-stop shopping for all safety-related services for major offshore projects,” said Malcolm Sharples, vice president of Offshore Project Development. The new structure coordinates a variety of services available from ABS, primarily classification, and from its affiliated ABS Group companies including: verification and certification, asset management, HSE, human factors and safety management via ISM and ISO, plus a variety of risk management products and services.
“With nearly 70 percent of the overall market share in offshore classification, ABS’ expertise in classification and technology development for offshore is well-established,” said Sharples. “However, clients today are demanding an even larger scope of services to manage the risks associated with offshore facilities. Those additional products and services are available from the affiliated ABS Group companies. This new business structure gives us a competitive edge and provides comprehensive coordination for clients.”
