New Orleans, La., headquartered Harvey Gulf International Marine has hired Ed Galloway, formerly of Subsea7/i-Tech7, to build and manage its new subsea venture company, Harvey Subsea Services.
At SS7/i-Tech7, Galloway was Director of GOM Region, where he ran the company’s IMR business, including related charters and engineering solutions. Prior to this, he spent 23 years at Oceaneering, working in various leadership roles, focused on the subsea business. He is a U.S. Navy veteran.
“We are extremely happy to have Ed Galloway join the new subsea business joint venture we are forming,” said Harvey Gulf CEO, Shane Guidry. “I’ve invested over $450 million building the undisputed best in-class subsea vessels in America, all of which are Jones Act compliant. Now, with Ed and our soon to-be-named joint venture partner, we will execute projects with the upmost safety and operational excellence, surpassing our competitors in both efficiency, and cost effectiveness.”
“I am honored to be given this opportunity from Mr. Guidry to join his talented team of professionals and build a subsea service company,” said Galloway. “Having chartered vessels from Harvey over the years, I know the commitment the team puts into safety and maintenance for a Jones act Fleet that is purpose built for the IRM/subsea construction environment.”
Harvey Gulf’s subsea fleet includes the 340 foot MPSVs Harvey Sub-Sea and Harvey Blue Sea, the 310 foot MPSV Harvey Deep Sea and the 300 ft MPSV Harvey Intervention.
