New Jersey-based marine fuels testing, surveying and consulting firm Seahawk Services on Thursday (16 May) said it is now offering marine fuel analysis and bunker quantity and investigation surveys from a new base in Singapore.
Further, the company is set to open a fuel testing lab at the republic by the third quarter of 2019.
The Singapore operation will be headed by General Manager Abdul Farhan, who has worked in the industry for over a decade. He holds an MBA and is also a veteran of the Singapore Police Coast Guard.
“We are very excited about expanding Seahawk Services’ operations into Singapore,” said Farhan.
“The shipping industry is calling for more detailed information about the fuel it is buying in the run up to IMO 2020, and we believe that the timing is right for us to bring our strong expertise in marine fuel testing into this huge bunker market – we see significant business potential here for Seahawk Services.”
Seahawk Services was established by company President, Wajdi Abdmessih, who has over 25 years’ experience in the marine fuel testing industry.
“We provide global quality testing through our US laboratory’s, currently we operate two laboratories in the USA, and our new laboratory in Singapore will add to our capability to serve the Asian area for Quality and Quantity,” said Abdmessih.
“We can help buyers to focus on their profit margins by being highly vigilant over problems such as short delivery and other complications.”
