UK-based Manor Renewable Energy (MRE) has acquired survey vessel Isambard Brunel
The move follows the recent announcement of the launch of MRE’s new survey department, offering hydrographic and geophysical survey services.
Following a first charter for MRE, the vessel, due to be renamed Manor Brunel, will undergo engineering work, survey equipment updates and repainting at Manor Marine in Portland, Dorset with further refit work scheduled for later in the year.
The company recently appointed Alex Richards as survey manager. Mr Richards joins MRE with more than 23 years of experience in a wide range of survey disciplines, combining a strong background in offshore and coastal hydrography with management skills developed while running a successful survey company.
Mr Richards said, “I have worked closely with MRE in the past so it’s exciting to now join the company at a time when the industry is evolving and changing at such an incredible pace.”
MRE sales director Billy Hamilton said, “Adding a new survey department to MRE’s expanding portfolio of offshore services is a very exciting step for the company. We are pleased to bring Alex into the team with his extensive experience.”
