CessCon Decom’s Brunei decommissioning and marine maintenance facility set for 2025 launch

CessCon Decom with its partners achieved a key milestone in the development of Brunei’s first integrated decommissioning and marine maintenance yard in Pulau Muara Besar in Brunei.

The joint venture of Anson International consisting of CessCon Decom, with local partners Qaswa Holdings of the Adinin Group of Companies, the Ministry of Finance and Economy’s (MoFE) Strategic Development Capital Fund, and South Korea’s Dongil Shipyard Co. held the formal ‘ground-breaking’ ceremony at the facility on May 8th.

By offering decommissioning services along with marine maintenance, repair, and overhaul, Anson International aims to retain and generate significant value within Brunei.

The yard’s operation will create more than a hundred direct jobs, with Anson offering apprenticeships and overseas training with CessCon Decom and Dongil for local staff.

Lee Hanlon, CessCon Group CEO and one of the founding Directors and Board Members of Anson International commented, ‘The development and operation of the facility provides the opportunity to share our knowledge and experience gained across projects in the UK and Europe. We have already secured a significant pipeline of work over many years for the new facility and look forward to working with our partners to deliver safe, efficient, cost-effective, and environmentally responsible decommissioning operations in Brunei and the wider region from 2025 onwards.
