Semco Maritime's order backlogs at historical high

The order backlog for offshore company Semco Maritime, based in Esbjerg, Denmark, is currently up 30 percent compared to the same time last year. But the lack of qualified resources is putting some pressure on the margins, Carsten Nielsen, vice president of Semco, tells ShippingWatch.

The international engineer- and offshore company Semco Maritime, based in Esbjerg, is growing massively in 2012, and significant growth rates are experienced for the coming years.

“We expect the biggest growth from modification jobs on drilling rigs and offshore oil- and gas rig. Add to this the many new offshore windmill parks, where we have are seeing a rise in demand - which we expect to keep rising,” says Carsten Nielsen, vice president of Semco Maritime, to ShippingWatch.
