Ghanaian service company, Hydra Offshore, is taking advantage of the localization opportunities in its home country, to collaborate with UK engineering company Wood Group in delivering subsea engineering services.
The two companies signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to explore opportunities to provide subsea engineering services to local operators. “This move highlights Wood Group’s commitment to nationalisation and engaging the local supply chain in countries it operates in,” Wood Group says in a widely distributed press release. “The collaboration will combine the strengths of Hydra Offshore’s subsea engineering capabilities with technical experience, capability, technology and technical assurance of Wood Group’s global oil and gas business.
“Hydra Offshore engineers will also be able to tap into the subsea experience, knowledge on job coaching, technology and in house training programmes available through our sister company, Wood Group Kenny.”
Delali Otchi, chief executive officer for Hydra Offshore said: “Hydra Offshore is committed to the national agenda of maximising local content and strives to achieve a very high degree of Ghanaian content practicable without compromising operational and technical integrity”.
