OUR DIRECTORS

EDWIN TAN
Managing Director

In diving circles in Asia, his appreciation for the underworld marine is close to legendary with his exemplary track record over 35 years. He truly leads by example after learning the early ropes as an accomplished naval diver with the RSN (Republic of Singapore Navy) and competently transited through training and qualification into the field of commercial diving.

Edwin Tan continues to inspire and support the marine diving industry as the former Founder & Managing Director of Unidive Marine Services Pte Ltd with 140 full-time staff.

He laid the foundations as the pioneer Founder Chairman of the Commercial Diving Association (Singapore) from 2010-2014 wherein he worked closely with Ministry of Manpower and Workplace Safety and Health Council where the Competency Standards and the Curriculum, Training and Assessment Guide were introduced.

His highest marine reputation has led to multiple tender qualifications and audit with major customers like Shell, ExxonMobil and major shipyards under Keppel Offshore and Marine. He also wears other dignified marine-hats as a qualified Occupational Health & Safety Management Systems Auditor and Competence Assessor.

Edwin’s close to four-decades diving career shows his deep love of the marine industry. And now as Managing Director of Hydropro Pte Ltd, he intends to take a more holistic view in educational efforts to get his contemporaries to be savvier of global climatic changes that will soon impact the diving homeland.

Always with a world-class sea-faring mind, he also hopes to bring more attention to raising overall highest professional standards in local and regional commercial diving.
