TSC signs two-year frame agreement with Singapore-based Mencast Subsea


After working together on several successful inspection campaigns throughout the Asia-Pacific region, TSC Inspection Systems Pte Ltd has signed an exclusive two-year frame agreement with Mencast Subsea for the provision of topside and diver-deployed ACFM inspection services.

Mencast Subsea will continue to focus on identifying inspection requirements in its shipyard and in offshore operations, whilst TSC, through its Singapore facility, will provide ACFM equipment, operators and Level 3 support on a call-off basis.

Both companies will cooperate to increase the level of ACFM awareness in the local market through the joint provision of ACFM presentations and technical seminars. “We are very pleased to be moving forward with Mencast Subsea,” explained Paul Watkins, TSC’s Business Development Director. “This agreement ensures we can further develop what is already an excellent working relationship between both companies and continue to provide high-quality ACFM inspection services throughout the Asia-Pacific region.”

Nickson Khoo, TSC’s Business Development Manager based in Singapore, added: “I am thrilled about working with Mencast Subsea. They have excellent and talented personnel who I have known for several years.” He continued: “Being able to work even closer with them and develop their ACFM inspection solutions will be exciting and rewarding for everyone.”

Jeremiah C Chen, Manager of Sales & Business Development at Mencast Subsea, said: “Having this agreement enables us to provide a broader spectrum of quality services and create value for our customers, knowing we have the utmost support from TSC, the world’s leading authority in ACFM technology.”
