New Locations for maintenance and repair support in Busan, South Korea and Singapore

Emergency service is required globally in the shipping industry.The member companies of the Subsea Solutions Alliance have developed compact, fully electrical systems designed to be mobilized anywhere around the world and to utilize ship’s power for electrical distribution. This modular system of specialized equipment has allowed the member companies of the Subsea Solutions Alliance to support complex repairs around the world while maintaining a permanent work force in all of our 11 locations throughout the world.

As the shipping industry suffers under the financial strain of the global economic slow down, our clientele continue to request us to find ways to provide our superior services in a cost effective manner. Continuing to listen and invest in accordance with our customer requests, we are pleased to announce our Far East service locations to support your needs.
