Unique Group said on Wednesday that it would 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.

Harry Gandhi, CEO of Unique Group, said: “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.”

The company added that it upgraded its facilities in Singapore as part of its Far East growth plans. 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.
