Subsea Global Solutions (SGS) has entered into a new agreement with Hafnia Pools, one of the world’s leading product tanker operators and a member of BW Group, to provide underwater hull maintenance and repair services for their fleet of 93 owned vessels
The agreement between SGS and Hafnia Pools aims to solidify the existing good co-operation between the two companies and bring additional operational efficiencies to Hafnia.
Under the arrangement, all related underwater works for the Hafnia Tankers fleet will be co-ordinated out of SGS’ Singapore office to ensure complete alignment with their technical team in Singapore.
Hafnia vice president technical, inhouse fleet, Surajit Chanda said “Protecting the environment with preventative and proactive underwater maintenance policies, while optimising the commercial performance of our fleet has always been one of our key operational objectives. SGS offers the right size and depth, global coverage, and consistent reliability we need to achieve that.”
SGS managing director, Asia-Pacific region, Capt Satnam Kumar added “Our environmental objectives are aligned with Hafnia’s Environmental Management Plan that aims to set the gold standard on climate action for the industry. We are committed to supporting these initiatives and helping them reduce their fleet’s fuel consumption and emissions worldwide.”
SGS chief commercial officer Harun Duzgoren commented “We are excited to be given the opportunity to support Hafnia’s fleet worldwide. With our new cloud-based reporting tool and SGS Partner Central platform, strategically located office network, and our 165-strong diver-technician team, we look forward to assisting them with their environmental and energy efficiency goals.”
