OCHL has expanded its operations into Asia with the establishment of a Singapore subsidiary.
OEG Asia Pacific PTE Ltd will supply clients in the offshore oil and gas industry with specialist, pressurised engineering cabins and a range of containers and baskets.
Over £1million has already been invested in a new rental fleet build programme for Singapore, with A60 fire rated, DNV 271 Zone rated engineering cabins being available for rent from December, and full operations expected to be in place at the beginning of 2010.
The opening of the Singapore base is the first phase of OCHL's three-year plan to expand its presence in the Asia Pacific region, to eventually cover Malaysia, Thailand, Australia, Vietnam, Brunei, Indonesia and China.
OCHL Chief Executive John Heiton said: “By setting up a subsidiary in Singapore, we are creating an international service and support hub for our customers in the Asia Pacific region. The establishment of this base will enable us to provide a rapid response to local customers' needs and support them technically on the ground during their own operations.
“Initially, there will be a small team working at the Singapore office, but we will be looking to expand staff numbers over the following months to meet with the expected increasing level of enquiries and upcoming projects currently being pursued.”
