Hallin Marine Subsea International's new, state of the art, multi-purpose facility in Singapore has been officially opened by Dave Dunlap, the CEO of parent company Superior Energy Services.
The 11,000 square metre, purpose built premises are a ‘clear indication of the commitment we have to South East Asia and our plans to continue to grow our presence in the region' Mr Dunlap explained during the opening ceremony for staff and guests.
He added: "It gives Hallin Marine the best possible facilities: it's a great operational base next to where our vessels will tie up; a first class maintenance and storage centre; an outstanding manufacturing facility for our dive and ROV systems; and a wonderful environment in which to work for our design engineers and our executives and support staff.
'This facility will also give other Superior subsidiary companies a base to grow their own operations in the region while working together to produce and deliver technically advanced solutions for our clients."
The facility has been built on the marine jetty in Loyang (the centre for Singapore's busy offshore oil and gas industry) and been some two years in the planning and gives Hallin the room to further expand.
Hallin's senior team worked closely with the developers and the Singapore authorities to ensure the showpiece development fitted its current and planned future needs.
It brings under one roof the company's East operating division; its manufacturing and marine divisions; the company's administration centre and the Singapore arm of Prospect, Hallin's engineering design business as well as acting as a base for other Superior subsidiaries in the region.
The development is in excess of 11,000 square metres and boasts 5,000 square metres of yard space, of which almost a quarter is covered.
With 3,000 square metres of workshop space, including designated ‘clean areas' for electronic, hydraulic and electrical assembly and testing, and a further 3,000 square metres of office space, Hallin believes it has planned for the next step of its expansion programme.
