ABS beefs up offshore in Singapore

ABS beefs up offshore in Singapore
Singapore: Classification society ABS is strengthening its position in the Singapore market transferring key offshore positions from Houston.

ABS is relocating key offshore leadership positions, including its chief engineer for offshore, Joseph Rousseau to the Singapore office, adding a virtual model basin to its technical offerings at ABS Singapore Offshore Technology Centre and expanding its relationships with local universities to support ABS Rule development and technology programmes.

“Our expanded offerings in Singapore reflect the country’s growing role as a center for deepwater research,” said Christopher Wiernicki, ceo and president of ABS.

“Even with all of our electronic communications, there is nothing more important than face-to-face dialog,” he said. “Having our chief engineer for offshore on the ground in Singapore will allow us to continue to deliver the solution-driven service our clients expect and deserve.”
