V.Group expands in Abu Dhabi with ADNOC L&S crew management deal

V.Group is to supply crew management services to ADNOC Logistics and Services for 93 offshore support vessels.

The contract sees V.Group opening a new Abu Dhabi office which began operations in early August delivering a office and service functions within a 90-day period. This was part of the agreement with ADNOC L&S.

A stabilisation period will now run to the end of the year when the V.Group office will start regular crew management operations for ADNOC L&S.

“We committed to ADNOC L&S that we would set up a team and be ready to provide crew management services for its fleet within 90 days, and I am proud to say we delivered,” said Allan Falkenberg, managing director of crew management for V.Group.

Nick Fisher, deputy ceo of ADNOC L&S said, “We’re confident in V.Group’s ability to drive performance across our fleet. The fact that they have set up an entire new team within 90 days is testament to their commitment and I’m looking forward to our collaboration in delivering efficient operations.”

V.Group plans to further expand its ship management and marine services businesses in the region.
