From a unique collaboration between Marlow Offshore and SeaZip Offshore Service, comes MarZip Offshore Personnel BV.

Joint skills and expertise in project staffing and maritime management produce cost-efficiency in project staffing 

The availability of qualified crew in any necessary disciplines and at all levels is currently one of the most important challenges encountered by the offshore energy industry. Only when all the competences fit well with each other at the right time, the continuity of operations, performance and safety are secured. MarZip Offshore Personnel, deploys a new service model for that purpose. MarZip links world-wide experience in recruitment, crewing and HR to active involvement in operational offshore operations and maritime know-how. 

MarZip Offshore Personnel is a joint venture between Marlow Offshore and SeaZip Offshore Service. The consolidation of strengths is an answer to the increasing demand for a single contact service concept for project-based, international offshore staffing solutions. 

‘Active knowledge of operational processes in the offshore energy industry as a pillar supporting innovative, cost-efficient staffing solutions’ 

Rhoon/Rotterdam-based Marlow Offshore, a subdivision of the global Marlow Navigation Group, contributes the required recruitment and staffing skills. Harlingen-based SeaZip Offshore Service is responsible for the maritime and logistic support. As a manager of offshore service vessels, SeaZip is actively involved in projects in the offshore wind, oil and gas industry. Both Marlow and SeaZip know the operational processes and the inherent quality and safety standards from within. 

Under the management of Stephan Nunnink, MarZip Offshore Personnel focusses on cost-efficient staffing solutions which seamlessly fit with the dynamics of complicated, international projects. MarZip supplies qualified professionals in all the appropriate disciplines: from planners to inspectors, from mechanics and electricians to QHSE officers and vessel coordinators. Depending on the job and the wishes of project owners/contractors, MarZip recruits its professionals in the EU or Eastern Europe. 

Whenever, wherever – MarZip Offshore Personnel provides capacity and flexibility

Nunnink, who has a solid record of service in offshore staffing himself, says: “We have 24/7 access to a global network of immediately available offshore professionals. Thanks to our active involvement in the offshore world and knowledge of the operational processes, we know how to screen staff for each project and vacancy. We provide both capacity and flexibility; we supply exactly that which the offshore energy industry needs, no matter the project phase concerned.” 

MarZip Offshore Crew realises both ad hoc solutions and lasting connections. It focusses on international recruitment, contracting, personnel management, planning and coordination, safety trainings and maritime/logistic management. MarZip also puts together customer- and project-specific pools, which are international and multi-disciplinary. 

Nunnink continues: “MarZip combines the best of two worlds. This provides the industry with an unparalleled synergy for smart and cost-efficient project staffing, compliant with the currently applicable quality and safety standards. In our company, offshore professionals find a reliable platform which gives access to the best offshore projects in the world. We make the connections, we take care of the formalities. Which means that all offshore operations are carried out on time and according to the highest quality and safety standards – whenever, wherever.
