FULL RANGE OF EQUIPMENT FOR MARITIME OPERATIONS
GMC has Europe’s largest selection of rental equipment for anchoring and mooring, lifting and transport.
ANCHORING, TOWING AND LIFTING
Following the acquisition of AMC / Hinna base and other contractors on the Norwegian Continental Shelf, GMC has acquired a unique range of maritime equipment.

AASTA HANSTEEN AND HYWIND
Among our reference jobs, Marine Partner was responsible for removing sea fastening on Equinor’s Aasta Hansteen jacket, which was transported from Korea to Høylandsbygd on board the vessel Dockwise Vanguard. In addition, we handled the Aasta Hansteen Spar inshore mooring in Digernessundet south of Stord, delivering pre-installation, hook-up and tensioning, as well as retrieval.
As a part of Equinor’s Hywind pilot project, GMC provided the mooring of three North Sea barges that were used as a deepwater dock for the five wind turbines during installation. The wind turbines reach 70 meters below the surface, and the project was successful. Both projects were delivered in tight cooperation with contractors and Equinor.
