RDS, a subsidiary of KCA Deutag, and Kavin Engineering and Services announced on 6 August that they have entered into a strategic alliance. The partnership will see the two companies jointly pursue design and engineering projects across the upstream and midstream market.
RDS, a drilling facilities design and engineering specialist, has delivered projects for more than 40 years. Kavin has created process topside solutions for about 80 floating storage production and offloading vessels more than 16 years.
Together, RDS and Kavin will be able to scale up their service offerings to reach the global market place — while providing clients with a focus on innovative, cost-effective outcomes.
“We feel proud to have achieved this important milestone,” S. Ramachandran, CEO of Kavin, said. “This agreement will strengthen the cooperation between RDS and Kavin and will enable us to deliver quality custom-built solutions.
Kavin will be to more efficiently execute onshore and offshore projects from the seabed on up, as well as leverage the strengths and experiences of the combined companies across the full project lifecycle.
“This exciting new relationship presents a broader and deeper market offering,” Albert Allan, Senior Vice President of RDS, said. The new partnership will enable both companies to “deliver high-value, high-quality projects across a wider spectrum.”
