Blue Water Singapore celebrates 25th anniversary
The Singapore office has established itself as a strong player in the Asian market
The Blue Water office in Singapore recently marked a significant milestone, celebrating its 25th anniversary. This special achievement was celebrated with a reception attended by valued clients, colleagues from various corners of the region and representatives from headquarters. Throughout the past 25 years, the Singapore office has established itself as a strong player in the Asian market, specialising in transport and logistics solutions for the Oil & Gas sector, Industrial Projects and Renewables sector.
Serving as the primary hub for Blue Water's Asian operations, the office has over time expanded the scope of business and number of employees to fulfil the demands of our customers. The office started 25 years ago with a single employee, driven by offshore company orders. After years of consistent growth, the team of 77 dedicated professionals has become a cornerstone of Blue Water's operations. Still today, the Singapore office remains a growing business with future perspectives for expansion.
"The key to our success in Singapore and the broader Asian region lies in our drive and determination to create tailor-made solutions for our clients," says Jason Goh, Regional Managing Director, Energy, Ports & Projects Asia, who joined the team from the very beginning. "With our extensive knowledge of the market, a network of experts and our commitment to saying 'yes' to a wide array of services and projects, we have seized various interesting opportunities that have broad us forward."
Diverse project portfolio
The office has logistics expertise in various sectors, including jack up rigs, semisubmersible rigs, floating storage and offloading, floating production storage and offloading projects, shipyard operations, oil field services and wind energy solutions. The Singapore office has secured several contracts and expanded wind energy services to projects in diverse locations, such as Greece, Türkiye, Romania, the Philippines and Australia.
Among project milestones are the win of three consecutive wind farm contracts in close collaboration with the Shanghai office, the charter of the Dockwise Vanguard, the largest semi-submersible ship in the world and the transportation of six semi-submersible rigs from yards in Asia to Brazil – with a structure as big as an American football field and up to 15,000 tonnes weight.
“Our diverse portfolio shows the flexibility and expertise we are known for. We play to our strengths with a team of skilled staff and in close collaboration with our other offices in the region. I look forward to continuing and strengthen our good name and reputation,” adds Florian Pinz, Regional General Manager, Energy, Ports & Projects.
