Malin React, a newly launched arm of the Malin Group, has appointed Graham Penman as a business unit manager to head up its operation.
With over 25 years’ experience in engineering, subsea installation, construction and project management, Graham has previously held various roles in the oil and gas industries.
Starting his career as an apprentice welder, his CV includes positions with Subsea 7, DOF Subsea UK, Bibby Offshore, Helix Energy Solutions and GAP Subsea Ltd – servicing many clients in the O&G industry with engineering expertise & personnel.
He has advanced knowledge of subsea installation engineering, team management, tendering, cost control, mechanical engineering, isolation philosophy, pipelines pre-commissioning and steelwork fabrication, with a track-record of delivering major capital engineering, construction and subsea inspection as well as repair & maintenance (IRM) projects across the world.
With this background he has been appointed to oversee the growth of Malin React, one of seven subsidiary brands which make up Malin Marine Limited, formally Malin Marine Consultants Aberdeen.
Penman said: “With the capacity to undertake complex projects at extremely short notice, Malin React’s expert team has extensive experience in the defence, renewables and offshore oil and gas industries – key sectors for the business’s overall strategic development. Taking pride in attention to detail, our role begins with initial vessel option assessment but extends to final equipment load test and deployment – a complete service which is continually evolving.
“Working alongside JFD in the completion of this exercise deployment is a prime example of the Malin React offering where time is critical and there is a requirement for turnkey mobilisation services.”
Graham Tait, managing director at Malin Marine Limited said: “Malin React is born from demand within the industry but bolstered by the knowledge and reputation of Malin Marine Consultants - so we’re delighted to have Penman as its business unit manager. His unrivalled skillsets across many different sectors combined with a hugely impressive track record in delivering vessel mobilisations puts the operation in extremely good hands as it undertakes an ambitious trajectory of growth.”
