Herbert-ABS Opens Singapore Office

Herbert-ABS Software Solutions LLC, a marine regulatory, load management, salvage and ship design software company, has opened an office in Singapore to reinforce service and support for Asia-based shipowners, operators and shipyards, the company said.

The new office will be led by Director and Naval Architect Rob Tagg, who will expand the activities and strategic plans of Herbert Engineering and Herbert-ABS Software, primarily supporting installations and sales of its CargoMax and HECSALV software products.

Herbert-ABS is a joint venture with ABS so the expansion to Singapore is also intended to leverage the strong local presence they have in Southeast Asia. The classification society's relationship with yards building vessels ranging from FPSOs to OSVs and tugs presents a significant opportunity for Herbert-ABS to increase its penetration among owners in this area.

"Close proximity to shipowners and operators, opportunities for salvage and offshore projects and software sales to other engineering companies, make Singapore the natural choice for the next phase of our expansion," said Hendrik Bruhns, President of Herbert-ABS Software Solutions LLC.

Herbert-ABS already counts a leading Asian container line, local salvors, offshore operators, engineering companies and shipyards among its clients, as well as working with local tanker and bulk carrier owners and operators.
