Message from The President of Malaysian Offshore Contractors Association (MOCA)
It is an honour to be invited once again to pen a few words in the 2020/2021 edition of the Malaysia Marine & Offshore Industries Directory – one of the foremost industry-related directories in the country. The Malaysian Offshore Contractors Association (MOCA) congratulates Marshall Cavendish (M) Sdn Bhd for once again putting together this invaluable resource for the local marine and offshore industries.
As an organisation for offshore contractors who provide works and services in engineering design, fabrication and construction, hook-up and commissioning, decommissioning, and transportation and installation, MOCA’s aim is to encourage close working relationship amongst member contractors through a number of activities that include conferences, seminars, workshops and training courses.
The current COVID-19 outbreak, however, necessitates a change in the way we do things. Social distancing adjustments would undoubtedly need to be made when we carry out our activities, perhaps even after the virus has been fully contained. Having said that, we prefer to think that unique situations present opportunities to get creative. MOCA intends to take up the challenge and look into new and improved ways of conducting our business.
One thing that we hope will continue unchanged is our friendship with Marshall Cavendish (M) Sdn Bhd. Kudos to them for keeping the engine running with this annual publication through what can be described as a difficult time for the oil and gas industry at the moment. We thank them for their continued support and hope that this directory will, as always, provide guidance and assistance to those who seek it.
Ir. Hisham Haron
