Manor Marine UK Ltd, leading maritime provider for shipbuilding, fabrication, repairs, and conversion, and Chartwell Marine Ltd, pioneers of sustainable next-generation vessel design, have entered a Memorandum of Understanding to develop a mutually beneficial relationship.
The companies have maintained a longstanding relationship through various projects, and this agreement demonstrates a further commitment to work in tandem on innovative and sustainable concepts and designs. Collaboration between maritime stakeholders and service providers is key to expanding a co-ordinated and profitable network of support for the offshore renewables sector.
The potential for newbuild vessel projects also forms part of what will become a joint commercial strategy between the two maritime firms. With a marriage of Manor Marine’s long and proven experience in shipbuilding and fabrication and Chartwell Marine’s consistent track record of ground-breaking vessel design, eye-catching new developments are sure to come.
Leif Cooper, Managing Director at Manor Marine commented, “This is the first step to both companies working more closely together in what we both see as a very exciting and busy future. Manor Marine provides engineering services and new build vessels to Manor Renewable Energy, who have very ambitious plans themselves.”
Andy Page, Managing Director at Chartwell Marine added, “We’re pleased to have been able to take this step towards progressing our valued relationship with Manor Marine. The Memorandum of Understanding isn’t just an agreement to purchase our naval architecture and design support, but a firm handshake with the prospect of a bright commercial future behind it — and some exciting newbuild projects later on down the line.”
