Unique Group has extended its offering to include diving & industrial gas supply for the African offshore market from its base in Cape Town, South Africa.
The extension of capabilities now includes the full range of diving, welding, industrial, laboratory, test and calibration gases, chemical tanks and gas storage equipment. These additions should help bolster the Group’s diving & life support division, thereby offering a complete solution for the diving industry.
Unique Group will supply diving gas, speciality gas and gas equipment on a sale and rental basis to its diving & life support customers across Africa.
The new service line will be headed by Vishvas Chauhan, who brings with him 15 years of experience in the oil and gas industry with a focus on offshore and onshore gas requirements.
Vishvas Chauhan said: “This new sector offering will play a key role in enabling us to deliver a sustainable, reliable and cost-effective service to the African Oil and Gas industry.”
Rodney McKechnie, Group director at Unique Group, said: “We welcome the expertise Vishvas Chauhan brings to spearhead industrial gas management services at Unique Group. After a rigorous study of the diving industry and the current requirements of customers in the region, it was imperative for our diving division to offer a complete turnkey package inclusive of diving & industrial gas.
“The African market is paramount to the overall success of our diving & life support division and Vishvas’ appointment is strategic as we look forward to further strengthen our operations in the region.”
