Matei Constantin, owner, was formerly the manager of Constanta Harbour and Romania’s Undersecretary of State in charge of naval issues in the Ministry of Transport. He explains that Green Seas serves many leading local and multinational companies in Romania and beyond. He says, “We have had a contract with Mobil since 1998 and with Exxon Mobil since 2003, performing technical maintenance and steel works on the hulls of their ships in West Africa. We differentiate ourselves from our competitors through the quality of our work and the qualifications of our workers, many of whom we send abroad for training. Our quality-control system is our customers’ guarantee of the highest possible standards.”
Unique underwater welding for ship repairs
Green Seas also sets itself apart through its unique, patented underwater welding procedure, the only one of its kind in the world. Matei Constantin explains, “To repair a crack in a ship’s hull, usually you must take the ship out of the water and work on it in dry-dock, but our process allows for repairs to be made underwater. We have received requests for this service from clients all over the world, even in New Zealand. We have 25 years of experience in this field.”
