PROjEN Prepare Subcontractor Documentation for Ex MOD Ship

PROjEN, the Cheshire based, award winning Project Management Company, have recently expanded their service offering through the provision of contract documentation expertise on behalf of James Fisher and Son’s.

James Fisher and Son’s a specialist marine services organisation, contacted PROjEN in connection with the refurbishment work they were carrying out on the Ex RN Belvedere, an ex MOD ship which was used in the Falklands. The refurbished ship has been bought from the MOD by the Brazilian Navy who are to use the ship in the policing of Drug Barons currently operating on the Brazilian Coast.

Keen to ensure that contracts between AP Falmouth who are responsible for the fit out, Weasley, the engine providers and the IT/ Communication Subcontractors were water-tight, James Fisher and Son’s enlisted the specialist support from PROjEN’s Commercial Team. PROjEN’s Commercial Team, though their own in-house activity have the necessary expertise in handling all contractual, legal, commercial and insurance issues between main and subcontractors.

Vince Sullivan, PROjEN’s Commercial Manager commented “this has been a very interesting and somewhat unique assignment. Not only have we provided the necessary contractual clauses within this documentation, we have also had to incorporate the myriad of clauses imposed by the MOD, resulting in a complex but legally sound contractual document between James Fisher and Son’s and the relevant subcontractor organisations”.

Following on from this assignment, PROjEN hope to grow their bespoke and off the shelf contractual service offering and are already in talks with James Fisher and Son’s management team in preparing all future contractual administrative and commercial support on their behalf.
