“We had some tank cleaning work of several tanks on a marine vessel which had to be carried out offshore in anchorage. This activity was carried out for a few days and we needed to find a way to support our 24-hour operation. Poni helped us by providing daily transportation for our crew; sent the crew's meals and delivered fuel for our equipment which was on the marine vessel. We manage to complete the job without coming back onshore and on time with Poni's boats. Looking forward to working with them again in the near future.”Masrhiem TaufikCEO / Director, Esca Marine & Engineering Sdn Bhd, Brunei
“We have known and worked together with Poni since 2012 on various jobs such as underwater inspection at the Butra Heidelberg Cement Jetty, underwater recovery of construction materials at jetty construction sites and other marine services such as Restoration Lateral Beacon for 1AW for MPABD at the Muara Channel Approaches, etc. All were performed timely & professionally and according to requirement with complete approvals. We look forward to working together with Poni on more upcoming projects.”Goh Kee PoonYeng Tong Construction Sdn. Bhd.
