Professional marine services company Subsea has joined Shipping Australia.
Shipping Australia CEO Melwyn Noronha said subsea plays a niche role in supporting regional economic growth in Australia.
“Its maritime operations support the maritime shipping industry, which carries over 99.9% of Australia’s trade in physical goods and commodities, and international trade, which employs around one in five Australian workers. In the past two years, the global shipping industry has faced a massive crew turnover crisis that had the potential to bring trade to a complete halt. Providing services that allow for crew rotation is critical,” Mr Nornoha said.
“Broader and more diverse membership can only be beneficial if we provide political input to the government. This in turn will benefit our members, local industry and Australia.”
Undersea Specialist Captain Zainol Ahmad said that as the company joins the industry association, it will work in partnership with key stakeholders which will result in better outcomes for our region, including supporting the growth and prosperity of Queensland, the East Coast and Australia.
“Additionally, as a specialist shipping services provider, we hope to add value not only through our technical capabilities to enhance and sustain our shipping industry and ports, but also through our commitment to providing employment and training opportunities for those who wish to pursue a career do in the maritime industry,” he said.
The company offers a wide range of services in support of our diverse maritime industry. Services include international ship crew transfers, ship inspection and repair work, and surveying services. The company also offers a range of underwater services related to salvage, seabed scanning, search and rescue, shipyard maintenance and diving services.
