Since 2009, local engineering firm Hai Leck, has invested more than S$20 million into mechanisation tools that can automate labour-intensive processes such as the fabrication of tankage, piping and process skids in the process, construction and maintenance (PCM) industry, a key support sector for the energy and chemicals industry in Singapore.
Local engineering firm Hai Leck invests S$20 million into mechanisation tools for the maintenance and construction of refineries and chemical plants on Jurong Island
These tools are able to achieve an average of 200 per cent productivity savings and a substantial reduction of man-hours annually, in the construction and maintenance of both refineries and chemical plants on Jurong Island.
This mechanisation effort is the first of a series of productivity initiatives that Hai Leck will undertake in its newly formed Productivity Centre of Excellence (CoE), which was established in partnership with the Singapore Economic Development Board (EDB).
“These innovative technologies are reshaping the future for the PCM sector, which has been burdened by high costs and scarcity of labour in recent years. This has made Hai Leck more resilient and echoes our commitment towards sustainability, long-term growth and value-creation for our clients and stakeholders”, said Mr Don Cheng Yao Tong, CEO of Hai Leck Group.
