In 2011 Pauli Joensen moved back to the Faroe Islands after some years abroad and joined the company as Board Director.

Since 2011 the company has gone through some radical changes, including changing the name of the company from Bátasølan Sp/f to FMS - Faroe Maritime Services Ltd.

Since the establishment the company has expanded from being a local maritime service supplier into a global maritime service supplier.
