NMM India win industry award
Northern Marine Management India (NMMI) has been voted "Best Employer for Tankers" at an Indian national maritime awards ceremony.
The Indian Maritime Choice Award was voted for by Indian Seafarers and was collected by company representatives at the Maritime 2018 award event in Goa on 21st April.
It is the second successive win for NMM India in the “mid-segment” size category. NMMI is a crewing subsidiary of Northern Marine, responsible for personnel-related management of a 1,600-strong Indian workforce.
First opened in 2002, the Mumbai-based division has grown exponentially over the years in parallel with the growth of Northern Marine’s managed seafaring workforce.
Mahesh Garimella, NMMI, Director – General Manager attended the recent awards ceremony alongside onshore colleagues and Northern Marine seafarers.
“I am glad to receive the award on behalf of Northern Marine Management India and we are thankful to the seafarers who have voted for us. The award is a recognition of the hard work of the team at NMMI and also is due to the high standard maintained on board our vessels. This is the second time we have won this award and we hope to continuously improve our services to win many more such awards in the future.”
It was announced at the event that over 18,000 seafarers participated in online voting across various categories.
Located in the business district of Powai, in North East Mumbai, the office is today home to over 150 employees, the majority of whom work in crewing or personnel services.
Other Northern Marine Group subsidiaries are also represented in Mumbai, including Clyde Travel Management and Aurora Digital Solutions.
The office’s training capability has recently been expanded with the implementation of a bridge training simulator.
Sumit Trikha, Northern Marine Management India, Marine Resource Manager added: “Mumbai has had training classroom space for many years, however this new ARI Simulator now broadens and greatly improves our training services package.
“By offering the training in Mumbai we can make considerable cost savings by reducing the travel previously required by officers in the region.”
Dhananjay Swadi, Northern Marine’s Personnel Director, added: “This is an important step in the development of capacities of the Mumbai office in order that we serve the needs of our clients in a more efficient manner.
