V.Ships Offshore Captains and their crew recognised by Shell for safety

Captain Rod Rix and Captain Mikhail Medvedev have been recognised by Shell for improving performance in HSSE risk areas on the anchor handlers chartered in support of their Stones field development in the Gulf of Mexico.

V.Ships Offshore took over full technical and crew management of the E.R. Offshore-owned vessels in December 2015 from Las Palmas and sailed them to the development in New Orleans in January. The vessels – E.R. Vittoria and E.R. Luisa are now on charter for other clients.

On charter for four months, during this time both Captains were praised for their HSE leadership and received formal recognition from Shell for their efforts.

Jamie Grant, V.Ships Offshore fleet manager said: “These awards recognise the leadership and proactive participation in risk assessment of vessel to vessel personal transfer from heading control tugs. Both our captains accepted this award on behalf of the whole crew and we are very proud of their efforts.”
