ISCO MEMBER IN INDIA IS SEEKING MUTUAL AID AGREEMENTS WITH OVERSEAS PARTNERS
Captain D. C. Sekhar, Member of ISCO Council for India and MD of AlphaMERS, writes “Bangalore based OSR company AlphaMERS reported a satisfactory growth curve and is in process of diversification. Besides its original activity of oil spill response, it already has activities in design innovation and assessments of offshore renewable energy. The company also carries out marine environment impact assessment studies (Marine EIAs).
The company is now embarking in backward integration of its OSR activities. It is setting up its own production facilities to manufacture OSR equipment, and is expanding its manpower strength. The company plans to stockpile a significant OSR inventory in India within a year. The technical director Mr.Ramesh Rao, a veteran class surveyor and a marine chief engineer himself, said the company is well poised to manufacture OSR equipment, given its innovation profile and experience in quality processes and standards. He said the company was scouting for overseas OSR companies to sign up mutual aid agreements”
