Strategic Marine has ramped up its expansion ambitions, announcing it is set to launch two new divisions after winning two major fabrication contracts with John Holland in Queensland.
Strategic said it would provide design, fabrication and engineering services for John Holland’s offloading facilities at the Curtis LNG project and the Gladstone LNG project, both in Queensland.
Chairman Mark Newbold said the company’s goal of becoming a key supplier to key resources and energy markets in WA and QLD was becoming a reality.
“These contracts have enabled us to accelerate plans for establishing a facility in QLD to service the coal seam gas industry, as well as the regional oil and gas industry, including neighbouring countries like Papua New Guinea,” Mr Newbold said.
“We have also recently established a new operation in Karratha, in the north west of WA, which will provide clients with rapid response marine services around the clock.”
Mr Newbold said the company’s aim was to establish a significant presence in fabrication, engineering and marine services throughout the Asia Pacific.
“The board is committed to the diversification of the Strategic Marine Group’s global operations,” he said.
“In fact, we are in the final stages of officially launching two new divisions within the organisation, the Marine Service division and the Fabrication and engineering division.
“Each division will provide a number of synergistic benefits to the group, complementing and building on the success of our global ship building division.”
Strategic notches its 10th anniversary this year.
