What our marine and energy clients say about us

  • Over the time we have worked with BLUE, the scope of work they handle for the SEA\LNG coalition has steadily increased. As well as assisting with content creation, BLUE provides communications support across a wide variety of channels, from traditional, social, and digital media, to events, newsletters, and direct member liaison. BLUE’s knowledge of, and networks within, the marine and energy industries have proven extremely useful, enabling them to act as strategic advisors. They are very well organised and their ability to work as a true extension of our team has been highly appreciated.

    Stephen Cadden
    Chief Operating Officer, SEA\LNG
  • We have been working with BLUE since 2016 to strengthen our PR and marketing strategy, which since then has significantly improved. They are professionals in defining the right messages for our target audiences and helping us to communicate them across multiple channels. Thanks to BLUE, we have increased our social and digital media presence, as well as Daikin’s share of voice in relevant media outlets. Despite the physical distance between our two organisations, we are able to work cohesively as a team and they have always given us great results.

    Katsuhiro Tetsuya
    Director, Daikin Reefer
  • We have been working with BLUE for the last 18 months and we are impressed by their professionalism, responsiveness, and fresh and sound ideas. BLUE came in at a time of many changes for our organisation, when trying to launch a new brand image and build international media relations. They helped us to significantly redefine our PR and communications strategy, and  further develop our collaboration with international media. The cooperation with BLUE towards achieving our goals and implementing our strategy is excellent. Ship registration is an extremely competitive and aggressive market, and PR and communications need a professional touch. We are glad the team at BLUE is by our side.

    Ioannis Efstratiou
    Acting Director, Department of Merchant Shipping, Republic of Cyprus
  • BLUE has played an integral role in our company’s rapid expansion. Besides being highly reliable and responsive, BLUE has added tremendous value to our strategic communications and PR activity while ensuring alignment with our business values and objectives. BLUE’s deep industry knowledge of the maritime industry, coupled with its vast network of contacts, has ensured great results delivered in a timely and efficient manner.

    Tuomas Riski
    CEO, Norsepower
  • I’ve worked closely with BLUE for the last ten years and continue to be impressed by the timely, creative, and high quality work they produce. BLUE has taken time to fully understand the markets in which we operate, our approach, and what we’re trying to achieve. Their help has proved invaluable for the growth and development of 20|20 Marine Energy in a hugely competitive industry.
