GAC has opened a second office in Chaguaramas, Trinidad’s north-west peninsula, west of Port of Spain, to act as a one-stop hub to cater for growing demand for offshore mobilisation.
The new base oversees vessels for regional projects in Trinidad & Tobago, Guyana and Suriname with services to move crew, cargo, bunker and spares, also offering procurement, ship agency and logistics services – all under a single roof. That includes arranging air charters to facilitate the crew change of more than 200 offshore professionals so far this year, all in full compliance with measures to prevent the spread of Covid-19.
Since the beginning of the pandemic, GAC elite operations teams in Trinidad & Tobago as well as Guyana have played a vital role overcoming challenges on the ground and complying with changing Covid-19 rules to execute professional services every time. To do so, the offices have expanded their portfolio to include niche services such as passenger air charter services in and out from Barbados, Puerto Rico, St Martin, Guyana and many other destinations.
“The development of such time critical services enables us to become the partner of choice of many customers, especially those engaged in upstream oil and gas activities” says GAC Trinidad & Tobago’s Managing Director Ravindu Rodrigo. “Specialist training provided by the GAC Corporate Academy, in particular its Advanced GAC Energy Services course and other related training, plays an important role in equipping our staff with the operative expertise to meet customers’ needs efficiently and safely.”
