As we continue our journey to build the world’s safest, most sustainable, reliable, profitable, high-specification offshore energy support vessel fleet, we remain committed to the safety and wellbeing of our employees. One of our top priorities for our offshore team is for our crew to be safe, physically and mentally, and Get Home Safe to their families after every trip.

To this end, we are delighted to partner with the Sailors’ Society to provide our seafarers the Wellness at Sea program.

We recognize that the seafaring profession is a male-dominated industry, and the prevailing culture in this industry has historically been to shy away from talking about mental health issues. Through communication initiatives and our strategic partnership with the Sailors’ Society, we aim to heighten awareness about the importance of mental health, to foster open conversations and provide quality resources for all employees to better manage their mental wellbeing. We seek to create a work culture where employees feel comfortable and empowered to raise mental health issues and seek help when needed.



Founded by the Sailors’ Society, the Wellness at Sea program prides itself as the first holistic and custom-built wellness program that serves the needs of seafarers.
We believe the Wellness at Sea program will enable us to standardize our wellness support and ensure that our crew and their families have access to the wellness program, resources and helpline, regardless of the region they work in, nationalities, backgrounds, or spoken languages. Through the Wellness at Sea program, we provide our seafarers with a dedicated, confidential helpline and instant chat that is available 24/7 to provide support in times of need whenever needed. We believe the Wellness at Sea program will play a pivotal role in fostering a corporate culture that prioritizes the safety and wellbeing of our teams, and in turn, ensure their success and the safety of our operations.



As part of our collaboration with the Sailors’ Society, we have adopted an ongoing Wellness at Sea awareness campaign with modules being rolled-out on a quarterly basis. Aimed at seafarers, their families and shore-based employees, we hope the campaign will build awareness of wellness and address a wide range of topics within a holistic framework. This campaign will also promote our Wellness at Sea dedicated helpline that provides employees with prompt and dedicated support, including the support of the Sailors’ Society’s Crisis Response Network anytime needed. Seafarers can also raise issues and post questions to the Head of Wellness at the Sailors’ Society, Johan Smith. From stress management to tips on maintaining seafarers’ well-being, we encourage our employees to post their questions or vote for the question that they would like to be answered (
