Acteon announced the opening of its new Acteon Singapore Operations Center (ASOC) at the Offshore Marine Center in Singapore’s Tuas industrial area. The Center is the first purpose-built Acteon facility and has been designed to accommodate multiple Acteon operating companies and support their offshore operations throughout Southeast Asia.

The 10,000-square-meter portside facility offers Acteon companies both high grade office space and engineering capability in South East Asia. The ASOC provides Acteon operating companies with easy and unrestricted port mobilization and demobilization options for heavy equipment, which will be supported by a 128 te workshop crane capacity. Acteon’s Southeast Asia customer base will now benefit from quicker response times on equipment supply and rapid turnaround rates.

Several Acteon companies, including Team Energy Resources, Menck, Claxton, Aquatic and LM Handling will utilise the ASOC for the following activities: project design and engineering, equipment maintenance and servicing, and equipment availability for rental and sales.

Progressively, additional operating companies will be able to utilize the facility, as Acteon Group’s position in Southeast Asia strengthens.

“There was a strong demand for Acteon companies having a dedicated facility from which to utilize and service the Southeast Asia region,” said Acteon Group Ltd executive vice president Paul Alcock. “We are very committed to continuing our growth in Southeast Asia, and by investing heavily in establishing a dedicated local presence in Singapore, we have both secured easy and unrestricted port mobilization and demobilisation options for heavy equipment in Tuas, while vastly improving our access to customers in the region. They, in turn, will benefit from our enhanced and expedited service capabilities. This new center we hope will add significant value to our capabilities throughout Southeast Asia, and will add positively to the relationships we establish and develop in the region.”
