Axess Group has expanded its capabilities to include Marine Warranty Services, Marine Assurance, Dynamic Positioning Assurance and Engineering Solutions to the Oil and Gas industry, following the appointment of Axess North America’s new Managing Director, Mr. Espen Thomassen.

The integrated services will provide Axess’ clients with seamless project execution across all aspects of their marine operations—from vessel positioning, system audits, condition surveys and verification. These will be complemented by the Group’s existing asset integrity management and engineering services, providing turn-key solutions to the shipping, offshore and marine industry.

Mr. Thomassen has held previous executive positions at Global Maritime. His 10-year industry experience and deep understanding of the local market brings a wealth of expertise within the marine sector.

“In response to the increasing local demand for marine operations support, we are excited to bring in these new services to our existing and potential clients. I truly believe that the mix of culture, the company values and the creative mindset of the people is what makes this company great,” said Mr. Thomassen.

Axess North America is strengthening their Houston team as they seek to hire skilled master mariners, naval architects, structural and marine engineers, and marine advisors in the coming months. For interested applicants, send your resume and cover letter to Nathan Kyser at
