Hallin Opens New Facility in Singapore

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-meter, purpose-built facility is a clear indication of the commitment we have to Southeast Asia and our plans to continue to grow our presence in the region," Dunlap explained during the opening ceremony for staff and guests. 

He added, "It gives Hallin Marine the best possible facilities, a great operational base next to where our vessels will tie up, a first class maintenance and storage center, 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." 

After two years of planning, the facility was built on the marine jetty in Loyang (the center for Singapore's busy offshore oil and gas industry). Hallin's senior team worked closely with the developers and the Singapore authorities to ensure the showpiece development fit its current and planned future needs, including room for future expansion. 

It brings under one roof the company's East operating division; its manufacturing and marine divisions; the company's administration center 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 meters and boasts 5,000 square meters of yard space, of which almost a quarter is covered. 

With 3,000 square meters of workshop space, including designated 'clean areas' for electronic, hydraulic and electrical assembly and testing, and a further 3,000 square meters of office space, Hallin believes it has planned for the next step of its expansion program.
