The National Hyperbaric Center is opening an office in Singapore to provide subsea-related training, consulting, diving/ROV technical support and senior industry personnel for specialist projects. The new facility will be based in Loyang, close to the airport for visiting course attendees.

Sandy Harper, NHC AssociateDirector, said, “The new Center will reinforce NHC’s commitment to provide world class subsea training and services which will help to improve safety in the Diving Industry. Our commitment to Singapore has strategic significance, allowing us to deliver our services in a region that has recently lacked choice”.

NHC received tremendous response following attendance at exhibitions and events in the AsiaPac region, giving encouragement that a local presence would enhance subsea safety within the region.

NHC has recruited Singapore-based Bernice Tan, Business Development Manager, who has been identifying key requirements of clients in the region.

The first courses to be launched will be NHC’s highly-renowned OGP Client Representative Course and Dive System Auditing and Assurance Course.

These are complimented with a unique and new ROV System Auditing and Assurance Course, to take place of April 28-30, 2014.

NHC’s Consulting Department will also be developed to provide specialist consultancy services in the form of experienced Client Representatives, Auditors and Diving Technical and Operational Support to progress safe and efficient subsea operations.
