"I’ve worked with NMS for a fair few years now, and I cannot speak highly enough of the team. They are friendly, helpful and professional at all times, with no job being too big or too small. I get a lot of weird and wonderful requests in the shipping world, and NMS’s experience and extensive background in the industry has helped me on countless occasions."
James McKenzie - Ships Agency Team Leader from GAC Services (UK) Ltd (21/01/2021)
"In a business where we are literally asked for anything and everything you can think of no matter how obscure, We make Alasdair and the team at NMS one of first port of calls. This is down to their tenacity to get what we require when we require. “Team NMS” aren’t just a trusted supplier, they’re an extra member of our team and more importantly looked upon as friends.
Barry Mitchell - Managing Director at 3Point Procurement Limited (27/01/2021)
"NMS’ highly professional and thorough monitoring of operations, expert advice on lifting practices and timely reporting were an invaluable addition to MOWEL’s efforts as responsible client to ensure that the principal contractor and its subcontractor’s activities were conducted safely and in full compliance with UK health and safety legislation and good industry practice. I recommend NMS for any such surveillance of heavy lifting and marine activities and thank the team for their continued contribution towards the safe construction on the Moray East windfarm."
Martin Shaw - T&I Manager at Moray East (24/03/2021)
"A very professional and competent business that's prepared to flex with the changes to programme and requirement. With a wide range of Plant and experience they are extremely adaptable to support high Risk Projects. I Highly recommend Northern Marine Services."
Lee Clinton - Senior Operations Manager at Telent (26/04/2021)
"Build and deployment of the BlueX prototype Wave Energy Converter was Mocean Energy’s first major project, so having Northern Marine Services on board to advise on lifting and marine operations provided great comfort to the team. NMS led lift plan reviews, provided significant input to Procedures and HIRAs and attended lift days as “client rep”. NMS’s input over the lifecycle of the project has also helped Mocean build its knowledge base, which will be valuable on future projects. We look forward to working with NMS again."
Jon Clarke - Project Manager at Mocean. (20/05/2021)
