Braemar SA has established a new subsidiary company and opened a new office in Istanbul, Turkey to offer marine surveying, casualty investigation, consultancy, marine warranty and risk management services locally.
Uluç Mӧrek, a naval architect and marine engineer, has joined Braemar SA and will be the resident staff surveyor and manager of the Istanbul office. It will also be supported by Braemar SA staff already based in the region. Other local staff surveyors will be appointed in due course.
Nigel Clark, Braemar SA Managing Director, said; “We regularly undertake surveys, risk management instructions and consultancy assignments in and around Istanbul and the establishment of an office there with staff surveyors on site will enable us to better serve both our local and our international clients.
"We are seeing an increased level of activity within the Eastern Mediterranean/Black Sea region in general, and within Turkey in particular, and our new Istanbul office will complement our existing regional offices in Varna (Bulgaria) and Piraeus (Greece). Together these three offices will be able to offer the full range of our marine surveying, casualty investigation, consultancy, marine warranty and risk management services to clients on a local basis. We see Turkey as a key location for our services going forward and we expect to recruit further staff surveyors for the Istanbul office in the near future.”
The office, which is based in the Besiktas district of the city will move to the Kadikoy district in the near future.
