Abu Dhabi Ports’ offshore logistics service provider, Offshore Support and Logistics Services Company (OFCO – Offshore International), has announced the start of a collaboration with Mammoet United Arab Emirates as part of a newly signed Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between the two organisations. OFCO, will work closely with the heavy lift and transport specialist to create a unique integrated package of on and offshore turnkey transport and installation solutions for projects in the GCC.
Captain Maktoum Al Houqani, Chief Corporate Authority Officer and Head of Maritime Cluster, Abu Dhabi Ports, said: “The newly-announced collaboration between Abu Dhabi Ports’ OFCO and Mammoet marks a critical milestone in Abu Dhabi Ports’ ongoing efforts to foster an integrated logistics ecosystem catering to our commercial and industrial customers’ every need. By combining each organization’s expertise and resources, we can complement each other’s service offering and explore potential operational and logistical synergies, which would allow us to create an integrated, cost-effective solution for the major project market within the GCC and beyond.”
Paul van Gelder, Chief Executive Officer Mammoet added: “At Mammoet, we always look for ways to improve the efficiency of projects for our customers. The strategic alliance with OFCO is a testament to that, as our collaboration will reduce the number of interfaces within the logistics chain of projects, enabling the planning and operations to be streamlined, and therefore realising the most efficient and cost-effective approaches. Mammoet maintains the largest fleet of heavy lifting equipment in the world, and so is well-positioned to scale its service in response to any challenge. We look forward to bringing this enhanced offering to clients in the GCC, as part of this strategic partnership.”
