History & Milestones
Incorporated in 1996, SSB Cryogenic Equipment, a subsidiary of Sing Swee Bee Group, focuses on providing cryogenic and hydrocarbon bulk liquids, ISO tank leasing, repair, maintenance and re-certification services to the gas and marine industry. The company is the largest T75 ISO tank lessor in Southeast Asia, providing transportation and distribution support, as well as the supply of bulk liquids on both constant and turnkey basis to clients within the region.
SSB Cryogenic Services, a subsidiary of SSB Cryogenic Equipment, specializes in a wide range of cryogenic, marine, and turnkey solutions such as purging, LNG non-destructive tests, and the provisioning of plants/generator systems.
SSB Cryogenic Services has been providing non-destructive testing to LNG membrane carriers since year 2003. The company saw a demand for LNG membrane repairs as the number of LNG carriers has grown rapidly throughout these years, from the beginning of approximately 200 LNG vessels in 2003, to more than 400 vessels today. And among these figures, a large percentage docked in Singapore shipyards for repair service.
As the industry developed and market become increasingly competitive, the company sees the need to transform its LNG business to move up the value chain. Therefore in 2016, with a high degree of inter-partner fit, SSB Cryogenic Services 1 and Gabadi 2 entered into a joint venture partnership agreement to develop local capability in retrofitting, repairing and non-destructive testing of LNG membrane vessel, as well as in the construction of small-scale LNG membrane vessels.
Through this collaboration, it allows the company to bring in the engineering technology, expertise and experience in LNG membrane construction to this region, and also enhances the company’s small-scale LNG supply chain solutions to our clients in Southeast Asia, Australia and New Zealand.
