Ang Kah Hong, Tiong Woon's group chairman and managing director noted: "Although the current global economic climate remains challenging, there are areas of growth in the region in the sectors where we operate such as oil and gas, petrochemical, power and construction industries."

Only today, Tiong Woon successfully completed the ro-ro, haulage and lifting of a 1,147 tonne, 108 m tall xylene splitter column for EPC contractor SK E&C, to be deployed at Jurong Aromatics Corporation's complex in Singapore.

Tiong Woon was tasked with installing the column, which required the design and construction of a temporary ro-ro jetty on Jurong Island; as well as temporary road works and modification for the transportation of the superstructure.
