Part of the dynamic Unique Maritime Group, Unique Wellube’s services are focused on plant and pipeline operability and avoidance of costly unplanned shutdowns. Global reach extends across the Middle East, North America, Africa, and the UK North Sea, and a hugely impressive growth rate looks set to accelerate following a partnership with US-based Mactech Offshore.
As well as regional growth, Unique Wellube is looking to bring in complimentary products and services – a strategy that has seen the development of a major partnership with US-based Mactech Offshore, the world’s leading provider of subsea and offshore machining equipment solutions. “Mactech is a very interactive company working with clients to come up with bespoke solutions. They are able to react very quickly and provide high quality equipment and engineering services, and this ties in very much with our philosophy and operation. As a group we won’t take lots of partners on, but when we do we like to think of them as our company and vice versa.”
Focused mainly on cutting services, Mactech is the forefront name in offshore decommissioning diamond wire cutters. Ideal for cutting multi-string applications or heavy wall legs and cross members, its compact and robust design creates an ideal cutting environment, reducing setup, installation and removal time and costs. And as part of its strategy of continuous innovation, Mactech Offshore has now introduced the revolutionary ROV Diamond Wire Saw. Designed to address economical efficiencies and advantages, it also focuses on personnel and environmental safety when cutting equipment for abandonment operations.
“All this ties in with the range of services we provide,” says Gandhi. “We provide the services and Mactech the engineering and machinery behind it. We are talking to the same clients, and this enables us both to offer a bigger package and take away the headaches and hassle of having to deal with different sub-contractors.”
