Leading infrastructure support company, with unrivalled marine experience
As North Star celebrates the official naming of its second SOV, the Grampian Derwent, and it’s second daughter craft, the Alison Kay, CEO Matthew Gordon reflects on how collaboration remains the linchpin of progress, driving the business towards a more sustainable future in its ambition to add 40 hybrid Service Operations Vessels (SOVs) to its fleet by 2040.
When Maria Persson was told her original seafaring cadet programme sponsor could not provide her with the offshore experience she needed to complete her training qualification, North Star stepped in to help her out with the necessary operational ship time to qualify. Since then, Maria has made a big splash at the company, securing a full-time position as one of the company’s 1,300 strong workforce earlier this summer.
LR will conduct the design appraisal and survey of two Vard Commissioning Service Operations Vessels, due to be delivered in 2025 to North Star.
