First SE Asian Corporate Partner for IChemE

Article by Staff Writer

DNV GL MALAYSIA has become IChemE’s first Southeast Asian Corporate Partner, attaining Bronze status.

The company, originally from Norway, opened a Malaysian office in September 2014 in response to growing demand in Southeast Asia. It has four business segments – maritime, energy business assurance, and oil and gas – and is the world’s largest ship and offshore classification body as well as a leading technical advisor to the oil and gas and energy industries.

Bronze Corporate Partners benefit from increased visibility, access to professional networks and opportunities for sharing knowledge and expertise. Bronze partners pay IChemE membership fees for eligible staff and have an IChemE Accredited Company Training Scheme (ACTS). DNV GL Malaysia’s graduate development programme was accredited on 1 September.

Hernando Caceres, DNV GL Malaysia’s oil and gas business development director said: “The DNV GL Malaysia training scheme has been tailored to serve the oil and gas industry. It creates a path for young graduates to quickly adapt into the oil and gas industry in Malaysia and apply for Chartership in a short period. This programme creates quality individuals and increases core competence for our Malaysian operations.”

IChemE Malaysia chair Abdul Aziz Bin Abdul Raman presented the award. “I am delighted to present this award which demonstrates [DNV GL Malaysia’s] commitment to career development of chemical and process engineers as an employer and I hope many more companies in Asia will follow their fine example. IChemE is well placed in Malaysia to support such laudable initiatives,” he said.

Elisabeth Tørstad, CEO of DNV GL Oil & Gas said that the award represents the company’s continuous commitment to the development of the core competence of its staff.

DNV GL Malaysia joins 29 other IChemE Corporate Partners. Earlier this year, Johnson Matthey was made a Gold Corporate Partner, United Utilities became a Silver Corporate Partner and ArupPenspen and Lorien achieved Bronze status.
