The aim for MHO-Co is to operate our vessels with the most operating days per year in the industry. We design vessels specifically with focus on safety, reliability, comfort for technical staff and operational limits second to none – our vessels operate even when wave height exceeds two meters.
We believe that the future of the offshore industry is green. Our offshore support vessels and crew transfer vessels are optimized for high performance and low fuel consumption to meet demands for both sustainable and economically viable service. We constantly strive to develop new and improved vessels that are safe, environmentally friendly and comfortable.
Our headquarters are in Esbjerg, Denmark. 8 permanent employees are located at this office, and we have 52 employees working in shifts on our vessels. Primarily, we operate in Northern Europe, however, we are also available for assignments globally.
Health and Safety
Safety is always our priority. It must be safe for both passengers to be transported by our vessels as well as a safe place to work and our employees play an essential role. We have developed various procedures in which we train our employees so that they are able to handle all situations and risks associated with their work. These procedures are designed and continuously updated to ensure the highest level of safety for everyone on board.
All our vessels comply with all ISO certification requirements and are constantly working to optimize our safety systems so that our vessels are constantly operated according to the International Safety Management System (ISM).
MHO-Co was founded in 2015 by Mik Henriksen, who has many years of experience in the shipping and offshore industry.
