Our history

Northern Marine was formed in 1983 in Clydebank, Scotland with the purpose of providing ship management services to Shipping Divisions within the Stena Sphere. We began with 12 vessels under management. 

We extended our services to providing technical management to third party Clients in 1994 and since then we have grown steadily: we now manage in excess of 100 vessels and 75% of our business is with highly respected external Clients.

Our presence in Singapore goes back to 1986 when Austen Maritime Services Pte Ltd was formed as a joint venture with P&O Australia. Francois Marine Services Pte Ltd was later purchased in 2007. Our extended operations in the area are consolidated in our holding company Stena Marine Singapore and Houston and Mumbai in 2004, St Petersburg and Novorossiysk in 2008 and Shanghai in 2013.

Tritec Marine Ltd, a firm of Naval Architects was purchased in 1998 and today Tritec extend their scope of services and have a significant presence in newbuild supervision where they enjoy an excellent reputation with a number of first class Clients.

In 2012, Northern Marine Manning Services​, which is responsible to the group for the provision of fleet human resources for both internal and external Clients, extended their presence by purchase of a new build facility in Aberdeen with the purpose of increasing the provision of services to Clients in the offshore sector.​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​ ​
