BachmannHR puts in bid for inter-island ferry service
ANOTHER company will bid to operate the proposed inter-island passenger ferry service.
The BachmannHR Group has expressed its interest to run between Guernsey, Jersey and Alderney.
CEO Nick Saul said his company had many years’ experience in the marine industry, including providing crew, advice and expertise to many of the world’s leading shipping companies.
‘Only last year we were contacted by the States of Guernsey to provide assistance and solutions when Condor Liberation was restricted from operating due to regulatory issues,’ he said.
‘Within our organisation we have a number of former ferry industry professionals with over 90 years’ combined experience. I alone have worked in the ferry sector for over 12 years, most recently running the ferry services from the mainland to the Orkney and Shetland Isles.’
The company supplies a number of ferry operators, including a major cross-Channel company.
‘Bachmann is a maritime-centred international business that is based in Guernsey,’ Mr Saul said.
‘The opportunity to connect our neighbouring islands to provide a professional, reliable and cost-effective ferry service is one which excites us very much. We look forward to the ability to work with some of our many partners in achieving this goal.’
