North Sea Tyra extension fuels growth:
SH Group establishes footprint in Esbjerg
Based on the Danish government’s sanction of the Tyra life extension plans and a continued request from customers for local presence, SH Group has decided to establish a footprint in Esbjerg. The foundation is strong competences within mechanical, hydraulic and electrical work, and the goal is to be the first choice one-stop-shop for owners, operators and wind-companies, especially those companies who are now going to redevelop the Tyra field.
SH Group has employed Bjoern Joensen and Hardy Jeremiassen as Business Development Coordinator and Head of Business Development for offshore-, wind- and marine service in a new department in Esbjerg, which will have special focus on the opportunities arising from the just agreed North Sea Tyra extension plan.
The new team
Bjoern Joensen (33) grew up in the port of Esbjerg, and he comes to SH Group with a very broad background from the marine/offshore industry. Since 2006, he has worked his way up from Service Engineer to Team Lead for Rigs & Vessels at Fanø Kran Service. Hardy Jeremiassen (52) is the previous owner of Oilpower Hydraulics, and for 6 years he was Service Coordinator and Project Manager with Fanø Kran Service, before changing to PMC Technology in 2014. Now both have taken hire with SH Group. Many years in the marine and offshore business has given them a very strong and stable network nationally and internationally. They have used their technical insight for solving a wide variety of projects for customers, and this is a good basis for the new department. And the expectations to the new department are high.
Jeppe Sonne, Sales- and Marketing Director with SH Group, says:
- Both Bjoern and Hardy have years of experience with servicing hydraulic and mechanical equipment, and they are well-known in Esbjerg. We see a clear trend in customers requesting one single source of supplies for all mechanical, hydraulic, control systems and electrical work. With our in-house technical department of approx. 100 employees and many well-executed project references, we are certain that we can supply such a comprehensive package. That agreement on the Tyra field extension was reached this week just makes us speed up everything related to the new department in Esbjerg.
Focus on customers, safety and delivery
As Business Development Coordinator, it is Bjoern Joensen’s job to establish the new Esbjerg organization within SH Group. Aside from phasing in SH Group’s safety procedures in Esbjerg, the goal is to expand the co-operation with existing customers and make new partnership related to the North Sea agreement. Also, a service organization with service engineers and workshop is to be build-up, so that SH Group will be a visible, local company – both for customers and potential new employees.
As Head of Business Development, Hardy Jeremiassen has the primary responsibility for sales, and it is his task to grow relations via his extensive network of customers looking for a one-stop-service-shop. Focus is on local, national and international customers, who consider Esbjerg a central location for service work on assets.
