Full membership accreditation from IMCA

Fendercare Marine is proud to announce it has received full membership accreditation from the International Marine Contractors Association (IMCA) following a recent audit.

IMCA is the international trade association representing offshore, marine and underwater engineering companies. It is a respected voice around the world which promotes good practice, particularly in the areas of health, safety and environmental standards, quality and efficiency and technical standards.

Fendercare Marine diving operations director, Bob MacMillan, said;

“IMCA accreditation is very important to us. From day one we have been working in compliance with IMCA recommendations and this accreditation is recognition of the standards we strive to maintain.”

Fendercare Marine provides an extensive range of diving services and equipment for sale or hire. The company’s own diving teams are trained and experienced in a wide range of techniques and procedures and are also members of the Association of Diving Contractors.

Fendercare Marine group business development director, Martin Dronfield, added;

“Since the launch of our marine diving services division in 2010, the demand for our diving services has increased dramatically. As well as completing a number of diving and marine service contracts in the UK, we are now supporting our customers internationally including the provision of a 30 man team to support FPSO operations in West Africa. We see many opportunities to strengthen our capability in this area as part of the total package of solutions we offer both above and below the water and our IMCA registration is a significant step on the path to achieving this vision.”
