The Isle of Guernsey is located within the English Channel near the coast of France, the earliest evidence of shipping was the discovery of a shipwreck in 1982, which is thought to be a 3rd-century Roman cargo vessel.
Guernsey Harbours handle approximately 98% of all Guernsey’s freight imports and exports, including 100% of all liquid hydrocarbon fuel imports, along with around 33% of all passengers. As of 2014, the finance industry forms the largest economic sector in Guernsey, generating around 40% of Guernsey’s GDP and directly employing around 21% of its workforce.
Magellan’s aim to deliver cost-effective subsea operations to the private and energy sectors is underpinned by our strategic positioning of the corporate and commercial entities on the island.
