2017 has seen a healthy business trend for NICO International.

More than 3,500 individual afloat repair jobs been completed on board various vessels during the course of the year. As many as 150 riding squads were deputed at any given time for various ship owners. Additionally, NICO successfully completed over 57 drydocking jobs from its operational location in Dubai & Fujairah. Similar trend been observed for the industrial shutdown jobs. Completed several major industrial shutdown jobs with notable clients over the past year and several in the pipeline for 2018.
“It is a wide spectrum of activities that we engage in – we do not want to leave any market out of our plans,” Mr Kumar says. “Our focus going forward is to expand more into industrial sector. Last year we facilitated major power plant shutdowns with 100% success rate – the same core skillsets of time management and strong work ethics are easily translated from the marine sector to other sector, and the equipment is similar too. Additionally, NICO International’s staff are accustomed to strict timeframes – shutdown operations incur severe penalties for a company if exceeded, but our experience allows the company’s staff to operate well within this environment.”
