Delivering a cost-effective charter to ensure the wellbeing of crew during the pandemic

Employee wellbeing, safety and security a number one priority for our client

The challenge

Due to lockdown and travel restrictions worldwide because of the coronavirus pandemic, our client was facing the reality of their crew being stuck offshore for a long period of time. Keeping their crew onboard for too long is a risk. Prolonged overtime leads to a higher likelihood of human error, which may result, at its best, in material damage, but can also lead to people getting injured. With the mental and physical wellbeing, safety and security of crew a number one priority, it was paramount to be able to rotate their crew.

With a large presence in West Africa and an official lockdown in Angola which prevented any travel into the country, the client’s crew faced being stuck in Luanda, Angola. For the health and wellbeing of their crew they needed to act. They believed a charter flight would be the best approach to meet their high welfare and security standards, however this was not an area of specialism for the client and they were concerned regarding the cost implications.

 

The solution

The marine services organisation initiated a charter request with the support and guidance of ATPI Marine & Energy.
