Subsea Engineering Company Backs Tall Ships
29 July 2010A global specialist subsea company is the latest business to join the wave of sponsors backing The Tall Ships Races – Hartlepool 2010.
CTC Marine Projects, which is headquartered in Darlington, operates some of the world's largest, most technically advanced fleet of marine installation and trenching vehicles, serving the international offshore construction industry.
The company has offices around the globe including Dubai, Singapore and Perth Australia and provides project-driven solutions for a variety of industries including Oil and Gas, Telecommunications, Offshore Renewables, Power and Subsea Defence.
As part of their sponsorship deal, CTC Marine Projects will have a marquee within the Tall Ships Village and several banners will be placed at key locations.
Daryl Lynch, Managing Director of CTC Marine Projects said: "We work in the marine sector so are delighted to be teaming up with The Tall Ships Races. This is a fantastic event for local people and businesses as well as being a great opportunity to really put Hartlepool and the surrounding area on the map."
Hartlepool Mayor, Stuart Drummond commented: "I am delighted that CTC Marine Projects has come on board to support The Tall Ships Races, the biggest free event in England this year.
"The event will provide the company with the opportunity to raise its profile and reach out to a worldwide audience."
Hartlepool will welcome around 70 vessels and up to one million visitors when it hosts the Tall Ships event. Hartlepool Borough Council has teamed up with PD Ports and Hartlepool Marina to organise the four-day jamboree.
The fleet will provide a magnificent spectacle between 7 and 10 August at the end of The Tall Ships Races. The vessels will have sailed from Kristiansand in Norway in the second and final race.
