Swiber offshoot Kreuz Subsea is now a certified member of the International Marine Contractors Association – the international trade association representing offshore, marine and subsea engineering companies.
The IMCA granted Kreuz Subsea contractor membership for diving, allowing the Singaporean outfit to boost its subsea business and use its in-house diving support for its offshore construction projects as well as pursue new subsea business opportunities.
“As IMCA certification is a requisite by major oil companies in order to provide diving services to them, this certificate opens up a whole new market, and revenue source, for Swiber,” the group’s chief executive Raymond Goh said.
The offshore construction specialist currently has three dive support work barges, saturation diving systems and diving personnel.
Swiber aims to position itself to capture a larger slice of the Asia Pacific and Indian subsea market.
