New Orleans City Business, the city’s business newspaper covering metro New Orleans, recently published an article, titled “Naval Engineers Expect Energy Boom,” highlighting the explosive growth of Jensen Maritime, Crowley Maritime‘s naval architecture and marine engineering firm. Jensen opened its third office in New Orleans in 2012 and has since hired 10 new employees – with more future positions in the pipeline.
In the article, Jensen’s VP Johan Sperling stated: “The new office is key in capturing an anticipated wave of supply boat and equipment design, project management and other work tied to the offshore oil and gas industry in the Gulf of Mexico.” He also noted more clients want a firm that will drive out to shipyards to oversee work or review design details. New Orleans is the best positioned to offer access to Gulf Coast facilities.
