GoAGT Ltd. launches new range of maritime armed security teams

Friday, 05 April 2013 | 00:00
GoAGT Ltd. is to introduce a new, simplified range of security teams delivering excellence in the on-going fight against piracy and the threat of hijack.
The firm, a leading maritime security operator, has a 100% success rate guarding client ships on over 1,500 transits through the High Risk Area of the Indian Ocean.
GoAGT Ltd. employs over 200 ex-Royal Marine, Army, and Naval personnel, all holding at least eight years exemplary military service.
Now GoAGT Ltd has developed tiered security team options so clients can choose exactly the right team to suit their needs.
• Diamond Service - Both the team leader and team members are British – aimed at the major oil companies.
• Platinum Service - A British team leader with European team members – high quality security at a lower daily rate than the Diamond Service.
• Gold Plus Service - A British team leader with Filipino ex-marines as team members – ideal for mid to long-term transits.
• Gold Service - A European team leader with Filipino ex-marine team members – an economic option for vessels spending long periods in the High Risk Area.
GoAGT Ltd. Chief Operating Officer and renowned anti-piracy authority Gerry Northwood said: “We want to offer ship owners quality and choice through a clearly defined standard of service. Our clients will know exactly what they’re getting for their money. Having the right level of protection going through the Gulf of Aden remains crucial. Pirate gangs continue to mount frequent attacks on merchant vessels.”
Every GoAGT Ltd. armed security team comprises a leader accompanied by either two or three armed guards. All are fluent in written and spoken English.
The firm’s training and screening of all security personnel goes further than current industry best practice, ICoC, IMO and BIMCO Guidance.
This month GoAGT Ltd. again upgraded the technical kit its teams take to sea as it pushes for ISO28007 accreditation.
Former Royal Navy Captain, Gerry Northwood commanded a successful anti-piracy deployment around the Horn of Africa 18 months ago. He is available for interview and can be contacted on +356 22 48 71 00.
Formed in 2008, GoAGT Ltd. is now one of the best known names in the maritime security business. At any one time 160-180 of its security guards are at sea. The company recruits from the UK Royal Marines, Parachute and other Army regiments with front line experience, as well as the Irish Navy, Estonian Army and Filipino Marines.
It conducts extensive background checks on all security personnel, including verification of military service, academic qualifications, criminal record checks, and medical history.
