UNIQUE Maritime Group, an integrated turnkey subsea and offshore solutions provider, has announced a joint venture agreement with OEG Offshore (OEG), to offer rental and sale of offshore equipment in the Middle East region.    

The new joint venture company, OEG Unique, which will be based in the UAE and Qatar, will provide local access to OEG’s full range of over 200 individual certified designs of DNV 2.7-1 certified Cargo Carrying Units (CCUs) and A60 modules across the GCC countries.

The partners have invested in new equipment including offshore containers, baskets, half heights, tanks and waste equipment rated to the leading international standards DNV 2.7-1 and EN 12079.  The sales and rental fleet is located in bases at Sharjah and Doha and available for immediate mobilisation.  The modern and diverse fleet will be supported by OEG Unique’s customer and technical support resources from facilities in Dubai, Sharjah, Abu Dhabi and Qatar. 

Sahil Gandhi, director at Unique Maritime Group, commented that the new business was in line with his company’s growth strategy for the year. By partnering with OEG Offshore, his company was confident that specialised or customised products certified to DNV 2.7-1/EN 12079 would be available to customers in the Middle East region. “We look forward to a stronger brand presence in this business over the years to come,” he added.
