ABOUT US

The Team


STS operates as a coordinated functional group under the direction of the Managing Director, Mr Stuart Ballantyne. The friendly and competent team of staff have an excellent depth of both qualifications and experience.

Our company policy is such that when taking on new junior staff, time is spent working on vessels at sea, thereby gaining a vital depth of experience to their qualifications. This, combined with regular on-going training by way of seminars, conferences and other means produce a highly efficient and professional team of staff able to analyse and quantify all facets of ship design, construction and operation and deliver solutions accordingly.

Sea Transport is instrumental in providing input and feedback for local and international maritime authorities, classification societies teaching institutions, and software developers.
