Innovation, green energy, zero emissions, quality are just some of the things Tom Nevin, CEO at HST Marine, enthused about to PES. This relatively newcomer to offshore wind is a family owned business, focussed on going the extra mile for clients, whilst at the same time, looking after the needs of its personnel. It’s great to see a company thinking and acting on the needs of their workers.
PES: Hi Tom it’s a real pleasure to welcome you to PES Wind. To begin with would you like to introduce us to HST?
Tom Nevin: HST is a family-owned business which is just over 3 years old, as a management team we have over 60 years of ship management knowledge. We are a quality driven innovative business that have invested greatly into the next generation of offshore vessels.
PES: Of course, we know you work in multi-sectors, but which do you feel are the most important and the ones you are currently developing?
TN: Our main focus and expertise is in Renewables and our mission is to contribute towards the reduction of emissions from our industry. However, we have worked on coastal infrastructure projects, nearshore surveys and oil & gas projects. We feel that we will always save the end clients time and costs with our quality operations.
PES: How do your charter operations work? Do you provide the crew and maintenance?
TN: Currently we only provide the crew and the vessel. However, with the arrival of our Multicat new build we will be looking to provide charterers with ground-breaking solutions for their offshore project requirements.
PES: In this day and age with a focus on professionalism, how do you select your crew and then keep them working for you?
