Roll Group said on Tuesday that, with the signing of the contract with Bintan Offshore Marine Center (BOMC), it had taken an important step in executing its growth strategy in APAC, after the opening of the offices in Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, and Korea last year.

Roll Group will participate in the further development of BOMC, where the company yard will also be located. Namely, BOMC has offered Roll Group the opportunity to become an exclusive partner in the BOMC yard, which means that Roll Group takes care of the cranes and trailers to further develop the yard.

Robin Koenis, Managing Director of Roll Group APAC: “The yard will also have a jetty access, which is perfect for our company with its land/sea combination. Certainly because modules will also be built here in the future, and we can handle the transport of these modules with our fleet of adaptable vessels.’’

BOMC is 70% owned and operated by Qube Holdings, the largest port operator and logistics provider in the APAC region.

Adriaan Aarts, Roll Group CEO, emphasized the importance of having a yard in APAC: “It helps us with our strategy to expand the landbased business and to focus even more on combined land-sea projects. In addition, BOMC is located in Bintan, on a 60-minute ferry ride from our office in Singapore.’’

According to Roll, when the development of BOMC is fully completed, the yard will cover no less than 100 ha. In addition to the jetty, it will also have open storages, covered warehouses, workshops, module fabrication yards, a decommissioning yard and client-specific plants.
