Neptune is pleased to announce that it has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Singapore’s Unidive Marine Services Pte Ltd (Unidive) for the marketing and application of the NEPSYS® technology in Singapore and South East Asia.
Under the terms of the agreement, Neptune and Unidive will collaborate on the investigation, tender and execution (where appropriate) of projects utilising the NEPSYS® technology.
For its part, Neptune will provide a range of services including engineering and technical support; welding certification and approval; habitat fabrication; and NEPSYS® welder divers. All patent and intellectual property considerations associated with the technology will remain with Neptune.
In return, Unidive will provide a range of local diving support and project management services.
Neptune’s Group Engineering Services Manager, Dave Husband, said the agreement would help to raise the profile of NEPSYS® in South East Asia and allow for rapid project deployment within the region.
“The South East Asian region holds a number of potential opportunities for the application of the NEPSYS® technology. Unidive’s industry reputation for subsea and topside IRM expertise combined with its commitment to workplace safety bodes well for a mutually beneficial relationship with Neptune,” he added.
NEPSYS® is Neptune’s proprietary, class approved technology that produces a permanent surface quality weld in an underwater environment.
NEPSYS® consistently achieves quality welds that satisfy AWS 3.6 Class A and various other structural dry welding codes and has a proven track record in numerous applications including platform and floating facility repair, ship repairs, jacket strengthening, jack-up and pipeline repairs.
