Aker Solutions Boosts Its Presence in Asia Pacific with New Investment in Thailand

International oil service group Aker Solutions continues its investments in Asia Pacific with a brand new lifecycle services workshop in Songkhla, in the Gulf of Thailand.

Recently, Aker Solutions announced several investments in Malaysia including a new umbilical and a subsea service base, in addition to new equipment for its high-tech subsea manufacturing centre in Port Klang. The company is now further boosting its presence in the Asia Pacific region with a brand new workshop for lifecycle services and refurbishment in Thailand. This centre of excellence will support Aker Solutions’ surface wellheads and subsea tree businesses.

Dave Hutchinson, Aker Solutions’ president of the Asia Pacific subsea business says: “Aker Solutions has invested heavily to support the growth of the Asia Pacific region. This service base is a response to several new orders and recognition of the growing market demand. We are now even more capable of serving our clients.”

The new workshop replaces two other service bases in Thailand and consolidates Aker Solutions’ lifecycle services in Thailand under one roof. The new facility, which has a total area of 3 225sqm, opened today.

Aker Solutions has a solid network of surface product service facilities in the Asia Pacific region. Apart from Thailand, it has service bases in Vung Tau in Vietnam, Jakarta and Duri in Indonesia, Perth in Australia, and Mumbai in India. The surface wellheads manufacturing facility is located in Batam, Indonesia, and its global sales office is based in Singapore.
