Singapore Parallel Train

Case Study

Background

Our client is the single-largest manufacturing foreign investor in Singapore with assets of more than $7 billion. It operates the Singapore Refinery and Singapore Chemical Plant (SCP). Together, they form our client’s largest integrated manufacturing site in Asia.

The Singapore Parallel Train (SPT) is an integrated petrochemicals project that started construction in the refinery and chemical hub of Jurong Island in Singapore. It is integrated with the existing SCP, providing investment and operating synergies.

Challenge

Our client had to identify suitable contractors available on short notice, despite the shortage of skilled and experienced local contractors. Our client also needed assistance obtaining visas and work permits for contractors and organising quick mobilisation, sometimes within one day.

Airswift Solution

Airswift built a database of Singaporean candidates resulting in a turnaround of 12 hours for most of the positions. Airswift dedicated a logistics team available 24/7 to assist with visa applications and quick mobilisation of contractors.

Results

Airswift assembled an Emergency Response Team to develop close relationships with contractors through regular site visits and hosted events and regularly asked contractors for candidate referrals.

“My contact at Airswift helped answer all my questions and made sure I understood. The entire staff at the agency has gone out of their way to make my experience in Singapore exceptional.”
