Growing rig business in Asia

Following the acquisition of fire & safety contractor Inmaco, Singapore-based Semco Maritime now accelerates penetration into the markets for telecom, firefighting and safety solutions for rigs.

In South Korea, Semco Maritime was recently awarded a contract for high-standard telecom systems for a Maersk operated harsh environment jack-up rig. The rig is to be built at the Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering Shipyard (DSME) in South Korea. The installation includes SemSound PA/GA, telephony, LAN, TETRA & IP-TV systems as well as all firefighting systems.

Subsequently, Hyundai Heavy Industries placed an order for a complete high pressure water mist system to be installed at a new semi-submersible rig operated by Diamond Offshore.

The two South Korean shipyard orders follow a period of increasing activity in China as well. Here, Semco Maritime recently secured a total of eight orders for fire protection systems and five orders for state-of-the-art designed Internal Communication System Solutions to be deployed at Compact Semi-Submersible (CSS) accommodation ship and similar rigs and vessels on various offshore shipyards in China.

Head of Semco Maritime Singapore, Managing Director Martin Just, is very pleased with his company’s progress in a highly competitive market. He is particularly satisfied to learn that the acquisition of fire & safety specialist Inmaco at the beginning of this year has strengthened Semco Maritime significantly. He states:

"Singapore offers a thriving business climate and a perfect base for our company but used to pose some natural challenges in order to get foothold in South Korea some 3,000 miles away. That’s where the acquisition of Inmaco makes a clear difference. Inmaco operates in South Korea and stands strong within firefighting, as Semco Maritime stands strong within telecom-solutions. Together we form an attractive team, and the customers seem to agree".

The employees at Semco Maritime Singapore supply the whole of South East Asia with state-of-the-art-solutions. Firefighting and telecom are niche industries which challenge the supplier’s knowledge within both safety and risk assessments as well as the sub-contractors capability to develop reliable telecom solutions for the harshest thinkable conditions.

Semco Maritime Pte Ltd Singapore was established as an office in 2009. Now the Semco Maritime Singapore office employs 60 personnel.
