BSM participates in 'Sea Change’ programme
BSM has recently participated in the development of ‘Sea Change,’ an informative programme produced by the UK Chamber of Shipping and ITN Productions. The production explores the importance of the UK shipping industry with the help of industry-leaders, including BSM, who discuss the importance of safety at sea and how it can be improved through the right training and technological advancements.
BSM’s contribution took place in the Newcastle office where senior managers shared their expertise with an ITN Productions reporter. David Furnival, BSM’s Chief Operating Officer, provided an overview of the Company’s approach to efficient vessel operations with an emphasis on safety, enforcement of regulations, tailored training modules and simplified procedures that focus on the processes on board. Neil McNeil, Managing Director of BSM British Isles, spoke about BSM’s reach as a global organisation and the Company’s ability to provide responsive, locally based support.
‘Sea Change’ further explores the environmental impact of the shipping industry and solutions that are being developed to underpin positive change. Angus Campbell, BSM’s Corporate Director of Energy Projects, and John Eltringham, Project Director, contributed by outlining the work in progress to support the increasing adoption of LNG as a marine fuel through the Schulte Group and Babcock International joint venture, Babcock Schulte Energy, and Gas Supply Vessel design and development.
The ‘Sea Change’ production features key industry interviews and news-style reports and premiered at a UK Chamber of Shipping launch event held in London on November 7th.
