The year 2015 has seen a major downfall in the fortunes of all the major Korean Shipyards: economic downsizing, belt-tightening and cuts to manpower.
In this background of a gloomy international marine market for shipbuilding and offshore sector, SeaQuest was spectacularly successful in turning the tide for the company under the dynamic and proactive leadership of their MD, Jan Andersson, along with the Top Management, and achieved a remarkable performance by delivering over 30 complex ships of superb quality to customers satisfaction.
The total number of ships delivered by all the major shipyards in Korea was below 300 units, of which SeaQuest supervised and delivered abt. 10% of the best ships built in Korea: this is a matter of great pride and prestige for us and sets the challenge for SeaQuest team to perform even better under Jan’s stewardship in the years to come.
In 2015 SeaQuest had over 20 Site Offices open in HHI-Ulsan, HHI-Gunsan, HSHI, DSME, STX-Jinhae, STX-Goseong, SPP Gosung, SPP Sacheon, SPP Anjung, SPP Dukpo, Naikai, Imabari, DSIC Dalian and Waigaoqiao (SWS) shipyards, building sophisticated and diverse high technology ships like VLGC, VLCC, Tankers, Ro-Ro container vessels for prestigious clients. We ventured in the new field of MARS (Military Afloat Reach & Sustainability) Tankers for UK MoD and LSV (Logistics support Vessel) for Norway Defence Logistics Organization and are successfully following up the supervision of these vessels. SeaQuest is unique in managing both commercial and naval support ships.
SeaQuest’s sterling performance has been in achieving quality and safety, along with a sizeable turnover, with a multi-disciplinary professional team under watchful supervision and guidance of their “helmsman”.
