Singaporean Canadian Alliance

JEDCO signs Tripartite Collaboration Agreement as we bring our West-Coast-FIRST-Initiative into Singapore

The Directors of Joint Efficient Developments Consultancy (JEDCO) are pleased to confirm the signing of a Collaboration Agreement with Dyna-Mac Engineering Services Pte. Ltd. in Singapore. The first of two planned agreements, this contract provides us with the vehicle to support Feasibility and Strategy discussions on a joint proposal for an immediate infrastructure opportunity in British Columbia, which we are working in collaboration with our strategic partner Meridian Marine Industries Inc. This cross-border alliance not only adds value to the JEDCO business model, but is of strategic importance to our long-term commitment to the West-Coast-FIRST-Initiative in Canada.

A separate Collaboration Framework with Dyna-Mac is also imminent, once in place this agreement will allow us to move forward with other opportunities in Canada with Meridian Marine, as well as other project and investment prospects which the JEDCO team are developing in Singapore and surrounding regions.

As part of this collaboration our joint stakeholder and execution teams will be opening the doors to project offices located at Dyna-Mac’s West Yard at Pandan Crescent in Singapore. This tried and tested facility offers a total landed area of 30,100 sqm, Fabrication and Assembly Area (open) of 16,400 sqm, a covered workshop of 5,300 sqm and 1,181 sqm of Air-conditioned workshop.

Our teams will be housed in the main building which has a total of 6,714 sqm, which will provide adequate space to support Dyna-Mac and JEDCO’s incumbent contracts, which we are in the process of securing through JEDCO’s Solution Partnering model.

JEDCO’s short-term strategy through the Dyna-Mac and Meridian alliance, is to provide access to an execution model which our Canadian partner and customers will benefit in the provision of engineering, procurement services, fabrication, assembly and pre-commissioning of packages for the onshore and offshore energy, marine and infrastructure industries. A cost-effective model that delivers value, at the same time maximises local content in West Coast Canada.

Our medium-term commitment is ongoing support and knowledge transfer back to Meridian Marine, as we jointly enhance their drive to increase local capacity in British Columbia.

The longer-term strategy through the consortium is to create an end to end business model in Vancouver and Vancouver Island, which other national project investments in Canada can access and benefit from in the future.

Darren McLean – Executive Director, Commercial (JEDCO)

Dyna-Mac are a company that I have known from when I first landed in Singapore back in 2002, when I had the pleasure of being introduced to Desmond Lim Tze Jong at Gul Road by an old contractor of ours. Their growth over the years is testament to Desmond’s vision and the impressive corporate milestones Dyna-Mac has managed to achieve since the company’s incorporation back in 1990.

We have been engaged with their senior stakeholders these past couple of months and it’s refreshing to meet a team of likeminded professionals that not only understand the JEDCO model, but are fully committed to supporting our long-term vision and plans for Singapore, Indonesia and more.

A strategic path lays ahead, one that we’ve been mapping out for many months, and it all starts with this immediate infrastructure project which we are sure will be the first of many milestones in Canada as we start to progress our West-Coast-FIRST-Initiative.

Craig Bennett – Executive Director, Technical (JEDCO)

Developing this strategic tripartite collaboration with Dyna-Mac and our Alliance Partner, Meridian Marine, presents us a with a collective capability to bid and execute Solution Partnering scopes not only in Singapore, but across the region, into new territories, and into Western Canada.

Dyna-Mac are an established, high quality fabricator, that I have had the pleasure to work with on multiple projects for more than 10 years.  Their ability to consistently deliver work to the Energy Super-Majors, is testament to their high standards and consistent high-quality output.

Dyna-Mac have been very proactive to meet local content requirements for overseas clients, by setting up fabrication facilities in country to meet the project demands, which is very much aligned with JEDCO’s long term strategy of total knowledge transfer philosophy, complementing our West-Coast-FIRST-Initiative for Canada.  Having witnessed first-hand, Dyna-Mac’s flexible ability to set-up operations and integrate into new countries, I am confident that we will collectively work well together, with this latest collaboration being the start of a long-term strategic relationship between Dyna-Mac, JEDCO and Meridian Marine.”

James McFadden – President (Meridian Marine)

We are very pleased to announce the signing of this strategic alliance. The team at JEDCO have done an amazing job bringing Dyna-Mac on board to support on this immediate opportunity for one of our key customers here in British Columbia.

This alliance marks the beginning of a game changing model for BC, and having a company of Dyna-Mac’s stature on board, brings the expertise required to move forward with JEDCO’s West-Coast-FIRST-Initiative. Dyna-Mac’s commitment to provide support now and ongoing knowledge transfer gives us the ability to execute now as well as deliver on our longer-term commitments to our invested stakeholders in and out of BC.
