With a growing demand for its equipment and systems, Killybegs company Seaquest Systems has branched out to establish a branch in Norway.
Seaquest Noway is based in Averøy and managed by Anders Husby, and the new venture started up in January this year.
‘There’s a good market in Norway and at the moment we are stocking up with parts and fittings,’ he said.
‘We expect to have the whole Seaquest range available in Norway, including supplying systems for newbuilds that are being delivered to the Norwegian fleet over the next few years.’
Anders Husby commented that Norway is an important market for Seaquest.
‘There are seven newbuilds with Seaquest equipment on board on the way for Norwegian owners. so we are supplying cranes, winches, pumps, anchor windlasses, mooring systems and more for these new vessels. It’s important for us to be a complete supplier, providing systems for large and small vessels,’ he said.
He added that for such a growing market it is important to have a local point of contact.
‘We know that we have to be available whenever we are needed, day and night. Rapid service and delivery are vital, and we are used to that,’ he said, adding that so far Seaquest Norway has three staff.
‘We will be handling maintenance and commissioning of new systems – and we are looking for growth. We are offering service packages to our customers and when there’s a problem with electrics or hydraulic systems, we are there to get this sorted out quickly.’
