New Certified Service Partnership
Hatenboer-Water has appointed Aberdeen based water management and compliance company OWM Group (Offshore Water Management Ltd) to extend its network as to sales, product delivery and onboard installation and services.
The Certified Service Partner scheme is part of our strategy to extend the scope of our partnerships and offer consistent and high quality to shipping and offshore customers worldwide. The certificate not only comprises sales, but also technical support and consultancy of water monitoring and sampling services.
Guy Heijnen, CCO Hatenboer-Water: "We have been working with OWM Group in the UK for some years and always to mutual satisfaction. Obviously, there is some overlap in our activities, but the synergies exceed these by far. As the roll-out of our integrated product sales and technical support strategy accelerates, partly due to the covid pandemic, this is the perfect time to formalise our partnership with OWM Group. They are experiencing a growing customer demand for water treatment equipment and have a strong network in the Offshore and Oil and Gas markets, especially in the North Sea region. This makes our agreement a perfect fit. We look forward to continue and expand our cooperation for both our worldwide clients."
OWM Group supports customers assets globally: on platforms, drilling rigs, FPSO’s and Oil & Gas and Renewables service vessels. Both our companies have known each other for several years and feel the formal partnership is a logical step that fits neatly in the companies’ commercial strategies.
Growing global network
The Hatenboer-Water service network has expanded rapidly in recent months and now includes Al Estagamah Group (Saudi Arabia), Ålesund Maritime AS (Scandinavia), Altomar (Brazil), Hatenboer-Water Americas (USA - Houston office and warehouse) and Pe-Gu (Turkey). With Scotland-based OWM, another strongpoint in our network is achieved.
RO’s on stock
One of the products expected to benefit most from this partnership is our standardised Reverse Osmosis Water Maker (RO) range. These systems ensure clean drinking water on board any vessel and are kept on stock. To guarantee optimal knowledge and service levels, we trained two OWM service engineers for commissioning RO's onboard and is shooting instruction videos. In addition, the company plans to develop tool kits to support its global partner network more and more.
