Our maritime security team provides comprehensive support to commercial shipping and the oil and gas industries.

We understand the complexities of international shipping and the difficulties of operating in the current global security environment. We utilise industry leading specialists operating to the highest professional and legal standards to provide our clients with the security solutions they need. We offer a global capability with a core focus on the Gulf of Aden and Indian Ocean.

Ambrey has been providing market leading maritime security services since 2010 and we support a wide variety of clients, including blue chip ship owners, ship management companies and major charterers. We also work closely with insurance underwriters, the UK Government, industry associations and international initiatives to set and maintain high standards across the sector. We aim to provide a quality service at a fair price.

We have a thoroughly professional and responsible approach to maritime security services. We are an industry leader in compliance and believe in setting and maintaining the highest of standards in regulatory control.  We are signatories of the International Code of Conduct for Private Security Companies (ICoC), active members of the Security in Complex Environments Group (SCEG) of ADS and SAMI.

We recognise our position as a shipping supplier and have structured our services accordingly.  Our Service Delivery management team are established to meet the needs of international shipping on a 24/7 basis. We are structured to be flexible and reactive with experienced personnel always available to meet your requirements at short notice. We support vessels transiting the high risk area in east Africa and we run major offshore projects working on seismic surveys, rig moves and preliminary drilling operations in east and west Africa.
