LOC Germany, a subsidiary of LOC Group, the premier international marine and engineering consulting firm, has been awarded works with Bernhard Schulte Shipmanagement (BSM) to provide remote Dynamic Positioning (DP) trials.

The scope of work includes both the preparation of the remote DP trial programme and providing marine engineering consulting on DP systems for two offshore supply vessels of the BSM fleet; the “WINDEA LEIBNIZ” and the “WINDEA LA COUR”. Both vessels are engaged in supporting offshore wind farm operations off the coastlines of Germany and the Netherlands. LOC Germany also provides DP services to the DP-2 LNG bunker supply vessel “KAIROS” managed by BSM.

These works demonstrate the adoption of LOC’s DP capabilities across different sectors, including the offshore renewables market.

LOC Germany has already provided a wide range of specialist marine surveys and inspections for the German market since its establishment in June 2019, drawing on the support, expertise, and technical reach of other LOC Group offices in Europe. Marine surveys provided so far include CMID, OVID, pre-purchase marine surveys, and condition and suitability Surveys.

Emek Ersin Takmaz, General Manager at LOC Germany, commented:

“The team at LOC Germany is pleased to have secured these works with Bernhard Schulte Shipmanagement, a leading maritime solutions provider. It has enabled the Group to expand its capabilities within offshore wind operations, working together with BSM’s offshore supply vessels. The work is also a reflection of the group’s established reputation as specialist in dynamic positioning systems.”
