Swiber to Fly Mexican Flag on 4 More OSVs
Singapore-based Swiber informs it will hoist the Mexican flag on another four vessels in its fleet, comprising one derrick pipelay barge and three anchor handling tug / supply vessels (AHTs). Five vessels were deployed in Mexico three years ago when Swiber landed its first contract win in Latin America, with the construction of a 77 kilometer-long submarine pipeline project in Mexico for Pemex.
Swiber has since actively performed a number of major offshore construction projects in the region, and gained a reputation for its commitment to excellence, competitiveness and safety.
Today, Swiber has established strong presence in Mexico, which serves as the Group’s platform to further expand into the Latin America region. With offices in Mexico City and Ciudad el Carmen, the Group has a strong and capable team of Mexican staff with in-depth local understanding and expertise of the offshore oil and gas market in Mexico.
Said Mr. Antonio Villegas, President of Swiber Offshore Mexico, S.A. de C.V., a subsidiary of the Swiber Group, “With our fleet flying the Mexican flag, the Group will be in an advantageous position to offer immediate integrated solutions to fulfill the requirements of the Mexico market.
“With the implementation of the energy reform in Mexico, we are confident that the Group readily has the capabilities to deliver efficient and competitive offshore construction and marine services to existing clients and to the increasing number of new players entering the market.”
