Ekkehard Stade, the office in Ballindamm will serve alongside the 14 other offices in the GM Group, offering expertise in areas of Consultancy, Assurance, Design and Contracting.

The head office in Norway, the Abu Dhabi branch and both offices in the UK have moved in the last year to accommodate increasing staff numbers. The design department in the London office has doubled in size in the last few months, and a wealth of experienced master mariners, engineers and naval architects have recently joined the company.
Global Maritime’s design group tackle a wide range of vessel types from semi-submersibles to jack-ups, rock barges and pontoons through to floating piers. It is projects such as the Wind Jack turbine installation vessel that has attracted new talent with the promise of working on innovative and exciting assignments. The wind turbine installation and maintenance vessel, designed for self-sufficient installation of offshore wind turbines and foundations, has already been attracting large levels of interest from the Renewables Industry.
Global Maritime Germany will be showcasing their expertise at various conferences and exhibitions this year, including Windforce 2012 in Bremen and SMM in Hamburg. Ekkehard Stade will also be presenting at the Wind and Maritim Show in Rostock on the 31st May.
