Supporting projects in the Asia-Pacific region

James Fisher Subsea Excavation (JFSE) is supporting the fast-expanding oil and gas and renewables sectors in the Asia-Pacific region with a run of successful projects.

‘The Asia-Pacific market is enjoying a strong period with the extension of oil and gas sites and the growth of the renewables industry,’

Says Richard Beattie, regional director at JFSE.

‘Relationships are key and much of our new projects have come on the back of successful work in the region in the past.’

‘We have worked in Asia for many years and the fact that we have a specialised fleet of non-contact excavation tools based in multiple strategic locations means we are well-placed to respond to the needs of new and existing clients here.’ he adds. ‘The other key factor is having a great spread of equipment particularly suited to the renewables market, located permanently in the area – it means we have everything we need right on our doorstep.’

For instance, in Taiwan the team has been working on the de-burial and trenching of cables for the Formosa 1 wind farm near Miaoli, which will be Taiwan’s first commercial-scale offshore wind project. In Indonesia, the team returned to a remote site in Papua New Guinea (where some of the same personnel had worked in 2008) to provide operational support to a project seeking to increase the total capacity at a gas liquefaction plant, while in Malaysia work is underway with new oil and gas clients.

'We were approached by a potential customer with an opportunity but used our wealth of experience of similar work in Asia to suggest a different solution. The project went really well and saved that customer money.'

Explains Richard.
