Unique Group wins multi-million-dollar COOEC saturation dive system contract in China
Unique Group, one of the world’s leading integrated subsea and offshore solution providers, says it has been awarded a multi-million-dollar contract by China Offshore Oil Engineering Co., Ltd (COOEC), a market leading EPCI contractor in Asia Pacific. The contract was signed at the 2nd CNOOC Global Procurement signing ceremony held on November 7th, as a part of CIIE 2019 in Shanghai, China.
Under this contract, Unique Group will design, manufacture and deliver a classed saturation diving system to be integrated on COOEC’s vessel, including technical support during and post installation.
All equipment will comply with DNV and International Marine Contractors Association (IMCA) guidelines. Additionally, the turnkey package will also include Unique Equipment Manager (UEM), a digitalised planned maintenance system to accurately track the status of the equipment thereby minimising operational downtime.
Harry Gandhi, CEO of Unique Group commented: “This is a key achievement for Unique Group and a step towards a long-term business association with COOEC.
“2019 continues to be a successful year for Unique Group; so far we have won two key saturation dive system manufacturing contracts, keeping pace with the recovering offshore industry. Our ability to provide superior technical expertise and offer quality products within quick industry-leading delivery time, has always been appreciated by our clients globally.”
As part of its Far East growth plans, Q2 2019 has seen Unique Group upgrade its facilities in Singapore, moving to new premises with bigger operational infrastructure. The move is in line with the company’s vision to expand its portfolio in the APAC region and to support clients based in the region and internationally.
Over the years, Unique Group has demonstrated a strong track record of delivering state-of-the-art customised diving systems. Via its Oceanwide brand, Unique Group has achieved the rare milestone in 2019, becoming the only company in the world to have manufactured 77 SPHLs (Self Propelled Hyperbaric Lifeboat) to date.
