INTERNATIONAL NEWS
The National Marine Aquarium (NMA) in Plymouth is to receive a substantial legacy from its late chairman. David Pridden, who sadly died in November last year, has bequeathed a major sum to support the organisation’s educational work, with the only stipulation being that funds must be matched from industry, organisations or individuals.
 
First Marine Solutions (FMS) has made two senior appointments to bolster the firm’s ambitious global growth plans. Dave McGinlay and Paul Crichton join the Aberdeen based mooring services provider as Business Development Director and Sales and Marketing Manager, respectively.
 
Advances in underwater technologies have ushered in a golden age of exploration and discovery, complementing the classic research and detective work skills necessary to find long-lost wrecks, and helping to make our marine heritage accessible to all. ‘As the technology develops, becoming cheaper and more reliable, the challenge for us archaeologists is to think of more creative and ambitious applications for it,’ says Dave Conlin, head of the Submerged Resources Centre at the US National Park Service (NPS).

Swathe Services welcomed ex Naval Captain and Marine Consultant Jon Holmes to its team. Jon joins Swathe as Business Development Manager. The new role was created to maintain and increase the growing product sales and services as well as managing long-term strategic growth. A steady increase in products and services meant the company's large customer base and support had to be met with additional manpower.
 
Over 40 United States Coast Guard, State of Texas, maritime industry and local emergency responders attended the American Salvage Association’s ("ASA") Marine Salvage and Emergency Response training course last month in the Houston-Galveston area presented by the ASA Training Committee.
 
The subsea world has seen a lot of action in recent years, with some of the biggest global players joining forces. The creation of JFD, following the 2014 merger of James Fisher Defence and Divex, was a prime example. JFD has kept on growing. A year later, the company bought the National Hyperbaric Centre in Aberdeen to further boost its service offering. Singapore-based dive system manufacturer Lexmar was acquired in 2016 to enhance JFD’s diving system manufacturing capability in the Asia Pacific region.
