Motivation

EMAS AMC is a contender. We are newcomers, but not inexperienced. We have almost 200 employees in Norway already, and now we need you.

Motivation

A growing company

EMAS AMC is expanding, and now has almost 200 employees in Norway. This is what we want. EMAS AMC is a contender in the subsea construction and installation market. We want to take market share, piece by piece.

We are newcomers, but not inexperienced. Our technological expertise, solution-oriented, proactive approach and creativity measure up to any competitor. So do our vessels, and we are proud to work with the leading offshore construction vessels in the world.

Growth offers opportunities. EMAS AMC is a small company compared to its more established competitors. The size of the company allows our staff to see the overall picture, and to become involved in the different phases of a project. We are very conscious of the fact that every employee is unique and has an important role to play.No-one is overlooked, and we have expectations of every individual. You benefit from greater responsibility and exciting assignments.

At EMAS AMC, we are not satisfied with the status quo, nor focused on simply maintaining our current market share. We always see the glass as half-full. EMAS AMC is ambitious – we want to move onward and upward.

The key to our success

EMAS is known for its entrepreneurial focus, a key part of its identity. We are known for responding quickly to customer and project needs. We are efficiently organised, and decisions can be made quickly. This makes every day eventful and educational.

As an employee of EMAS AMC, you are the key to our success. We want to work with our clients to find new, innovative ways of overcoming challenges. Our staff is crucial in this regard.

EMAS AMC is a project organisation, and therefore has a flat management structure, both within the company and in individual projects. Every employee is closely involved in technical challenges and has close contact with specialist departments, clients and colleagues.

We are a market contender. This influences how we work. We are creative problem-solvers, and offer high levels of service. New ideas are welcome, and we learn from one another. Clients notice this. We want to build further on this foundation, helping EMAS AMC to continue to grow.

Meet our employees

We asked four of our newest colleagues why they chose EMAS AMC. Read what they said, and be inspired to join our team.

 

Thea Spieler

Thea Spieler (26) recently completed a Master of Science degree in marine technology. She specialised in hydrodynamics, the key to the work of the analysis department. Thea took up a full-time position with EMAS AMC in the summer of 2012, but had already established a relationship with the company through a student placement in the summer of 2011.

Why did you choose EMAS AMC?

I was offered a summer job here in 2011, which gave me an opportunity to learn about the varied opportunities and challenges offered by the company. I experienced a workplace which presents employees with interesting tasks, and received good support from inclusive, inspiring and positive colleagues. That is why I had few doubts about accepting EMAS AMC’s offer of full-time employment at the end of my studies.

What does a typical workday at EMAS AMC look like for a recent engineering graduate?

My first impression is very good. I was included in a project team straight away, and will be involved in all of the project stages from analysis and planning to completion offshore. My studies at NTNU gave me knowledge and a range of tools, and at EMAS AMC I have the opportunity to learn more about how to use those tools to support the company’s activities and value creation. Everything is in place – all I have to do is grab the opportunities on offer.

What advantages does EMAS AMC have that you would point out to others who are graduating soon?

When choosing an employer, it was important to me, as a fresh graduate, to be able to apply the knowledge I had spent so many years acquiring while it was still fresh in my mind. At EMAS AMC, I also have excellent opportunities to develop skills and work in other specialist areas if I should want to do so in future. In addition, EMAS AMC has a positive social environment, and offers good pay and conditions. Some people will also value the opportunity to work offshore, where theory is implemented in practice.

Karl H. Beck

Karl H. Beck (45) is a tender manager in the commercial department. His primary focus is on prospects in the cable segment. Although he has only been working for EMAS AMC for a short period of time, Karl has already become familiar with the company and, in his words, “I am pleased that my first impressions have been confirmed”.

Could you give us a short summary of who you are, and where you come from?

I am a naval architect, and previously worked in the shipping industry, including nine years abroad. Among other things, I worked for DNV for many years, and was posted to both Korea and Croatia. The last few years, I worked for a smaller consultancy, NMS, where I led the projects department for new vessel builds for four years. So, I have a fair amount of technical, social and cultural experience.

Why did you choose to join EMAS AMC?

I wanted to try something a little different, and to tackle new challenges in the offshore industry, so I knew what I was looking for. EMAS AMC seemed to me to be a forward-looking, ambitious organisation of the right size, which offered substantial personal development opportunities. When I heard that they were investing heavily in new, state-of-the-art vessels, I was sold. In addition, the company balances size with expertise. It is a respected company, not too bureaucratic, and individuals are recognised. Overall, it seemed to be a positive change of course.

What distinguishes this company from your previous employers?

I have worked for other good companies before, but in some larger companies, it is perhaps a little too easy to disappear in the crowd. At EMAS AMC, there is room for individuality – the company combines space to develop with serious professionalism and a determination to achieve its goals. The company is expanding, and therefore in a unique learning and development situation. At the same time, EMAS AMC can trace its roots back to the very start of Norway’s petroleum adventure. I feel that we are able to adapt to new needs, and that decisions can be made quickly. All of this helps to create an exciting workplace.

Marius S. Grønseth

Marius S. Grønseth (33) is one of the company’s many cycling enthusiasts. He is a chartered engineer, and specialised in geomatics at the Norwegian University of Life Sciences in Ås, Norway. At EMAS AMC, he has been presented with many technical challenges in the company’s most rapidly growing business segment – SURF.

What did you do before joining EMAS AMC?

I worked for the Skanska construction group for a total of eight years, both as a project engineer and as a department head. I also spent one year working as a project manager for iSurvey. It is safe to say that I am very familiar with both project organisations and entrepreneurship – knowledge which I have found very useful here.

Why did you choose to join EMAS AMC?

There were several deciding factors. I wanted to work even more on a project basis and operationally, but at the same time develop professionally. Some contacts put me in touch with EMAS AMC, and that shifted the process from the thinking stage to realisation. I also learned about the company from colleagues who had previously worked for Norwegian Contractors, and from current EMAS AMC employees. All in all, a combination of factors applied.

What does your job entail, and what challenges are you given?

I work primarily on survey-related issues in the SURF sector. I am following up several ongoing projects, including offshore, and I will also begin working on tenders soon. This week, I was given the opportunity to represent the company in a project context. This illustrates the breadth of the tasks an engineer may work on and be asked to take on at EMAS AMC.

About EMAS AMC

The company

EMAS AMC delivers subsea construction and marine services to the offshore petroleum and energy industry. The company employs more than 500 experienced, highly qualified specialists, and operates a modern, technologically advanced fleet of vessels. EMAS AMC has offices in Oslo, Stavanger, Houston, Texas (USA), Perth (Australia) and Singapore.

EMAS AMC is part of EMAS, the trading brand name of Ezra Holdings Limited, a leading global supplier of offshore construction, production, well-intervention and marine services.

The EMAS Group has almost 4,000 employees globally, distributed across 16 locations across Africa, North America, South America, Europe, Asia and the Pacific region. EMAS’s head office is located in Singapore. Ezra Holdings Limited is listed on SESDAQ (Singapore Exchange Securities Trading Limited).

Our solutions

EMAS AMC delivers subsea construction and marine services to the offshore petroleum and energy industry. Our clients include oil and gas companies, leading energy companies and operators of floating production facilities, as well as their suppliers.

EMAS AMC installs subsea systems for oil and gas companies all over the world, within the SURF (Subsea, Umbilical, Risers and Flowlines) segment. We install structures (templates and manifolds), flexible and rigid pipes, umbilicals and risers, and undertake testing of subsea systems. EMAS AMC also undertakes purchases of subsea systems, and is increasingly focusing on SURF EPCI (Engineering, Procurement, Construction and Installation) deliveries.

EMAS AMC also installs mooring systems for floating installations, conducts maintenance and makes modifications, and installs and removes floating and fixed platforms.

Further, EMAS AMC installs subsea power cables, for example for the electrification of oil and gas production platforms, export cables for transferring offshore wind power to the electricity grid, and cables for transferring power between countries.

These installation projects involve various tasks, including studies, engineering, project management, purchasing and manufacturing follow-up. Not least, they involve operations at sea, for which we use our modern, technologically-advanced fleet of construction vessels ensuring safety throughout the entire project.

Our people

We employ specialists with a strong interest in the projects they complete for our customers. Many of our employees have extensive experience, ranging from involvement in the longest-ever tow of a platform to the relocation of the largest structure ever moved on the surface of the earth. Others have joined us directly from school.

What we all have in common is that we are tenacious. We want to develop additional skills and expertise, both as colleagues and as a company. We solve problems and delivers together, while also challenging one another. We are curious, and we like challenges.

At EMAS AMC, you will have about 500 colleagues globally, of whom nearly 200 are based in Lysaker, Oslo – the head office for EMAS’s European and African operations – and in Stavanger. We are a growing company, and look forward to welcoming you as a new member of staff.

Our tools

We use large vessels, and are expanding our fleet. In the spring of 2012, the Lewek Connector was deployed for its first assignment. This vessel is one of the world’s most advanced and flexible subsea construction vessels, and the largest.

No other construction vessel can load as much product as the Lewek Connector: some 9,000 tonnes. The vessel also has two cranes with capacities of 400 tonnes and 50/100 tonnes respectively, which can operate at depths of up to 3,000 metres. Further, the vessel is fitted with both a Vertical Laying System (150 tonnes) and a Horizontal Laying System (70 tonnes).

The Lewek Connector is equipped for laying products from the side of the vessel. Combined with very good movement characteristics, this allows the Lewek Connector to lay cables in tougher weather conditions than our competitors. This gives us an advantage, which we utilise.

2014 will see the launch of the Lewek Constellation, which will lay both rigid pipe (reeling and J-lay), and flexible products.

The Lewek Constellation is one of the first generation of pipe-laying vessels equipped with liftable reels, rather than the integrated reels used on conventional vessels. Liftable reels significantly reduce mobilisation time, as the pipes are pre-welded into long strings on the reels, rather than being welded while the vessel is in harbour.

The Lewek Constellation’s crane, with its 3,000-tonne lifting capacity, allows it to set a new standard in operational efficiency. The lay tower is located mid-vessel, resulting in smaller movements. This will allow the vessel to operate in more demanding weather conditions, including in the Arctic.

Globally, EMAS AMC has access to a total of 10 vessels for the performance of installation and construction assignments.

Meet the regional director

Svein Haug is the head of EMAS AMC’s European and African operations. He is leading an ambitious company from Lysaker, Oslo, and has clear objectives for the future.

“When Aker Marine Contractors became part of the EMAS Group, it represented a major step towards our objective of creating a world-class supplier of offshore construction and marine services. Today, we deliver subsea construction solutions in all deepwater regions, and meet high health, safety and environment standards,” says Haug.

He believes that the combination of strong specialist expertise, many years’ experience of complex projects, and a high-tech fleet of construction vessels is the key to future success.

“EMAS AMC aims to become a leading market participant in important subsea sectors in the years ahead. The construction market will expand greatly, and EMAS AMC will actively compete for complex and exciting assignments. We have a highly competent organisation with an impressive history, and some of the world’s leading construction vessels. This is a toolbox of which we are proud.”

EMAS AMC has experienced positive market growth in the past year. Activity levels are high, and the time is right to recruit further team members.

“We look forward to welcoming new, capable, motivated colleagues. We are a contender in the market, and are looking for innovative experts and specialists. We offer a strong professional, creative and forward-looking environment in which knowledge-sharing and experience are of central importance. We also have fun at work, which is important!”
