Roll Group gains yard in APAC

Roll Group has signed an agreement to become an exclusive partner at Bintan Offshore Marine Center’s (BOMC) facilities in Indonesia.

BOMC is a greenfield facility that will cover approximately 100 ha when fully completed. Located within the Bintan Industrial Estate (BIE) free trade zone area, it will include open storage areas, covered warehouses, workshops, module fabrication yards, a decommissioning yard and client-specific plants.

As part of the agreement, Roll Group will have its own yard at BOMC and will supply cranes and trailers to further develop the facilities.

Robin Koenis, managing director of Roll Group Asia Pacific (APAC), added: “The yard will also have a jetty access, which is perfect for our company with its land/sea combination. As modules will also be built here in the future, and we can handle the transport of these modules with our fleet of adaptable vessels.’’

The agreement with BOMC, which is 70 percent owned and operated by port operator and logistics provider Qube Holdings, follows considerable expansion for Roll Group in the APAC region. Last year, the company opened offices in Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand and South Korea.

Commenting on the yard, Adriaan Aarts, Roll Group ceo, said: “It helps us with our strategy to expand the land-based business and to focus even more on combined land-sea projects. In addition, BOMC is located in Bintan, on a 60-minute ferry ride from our office in Singapore.’’
