Alhamdulillah, Al-Hadid is also active in contributing back to the community, particularly in the areas of charity and special needs, like donating household equipments and assisting needy families.
On Thursday 15 Mac 2018, Al-Hadid went to Masjid Setia Ali Pekan Muara, to do general cleaning work both inside the Mosque as well as the surrounding compound. Staff who did not have any operations commitment were on hand to do this volunteer activity. It was a very satisfying activity.
The date 6 September 2017 will always be remembered as another important milestone in the history of Al-Hadid Marine Services Sdn. Bhd. It is the time when Al-Hadid is officially recognized as a qualified service provider for in-water survey specialist by three international institutions / societies, namely:
• American Bureau of Shipping (ABS): As an External Specialist for in-water survey,
• Bureau Veritas (BV): To perform in-water survey, and

This is the first local company being awarded such certifications.
On hand to formally handed over the certificates were Mr Mohd Razali Moktar, Country Manager Malaysia for American Bureau of Shipping (ABS), and Dr Hj Kamaruddin bin Dato Seri Paduka Hj Talib, for Bureau Veritas (BV). The Minister of Communications Brunei Darussalam, Yang Berhormat Dato Seri Setia Awang Hj Mustappa bin Hj Sirat, kindly witnessed the Ceremony. Due to business commitment, representatives from DNV GL could not come on the Ceremony’s date.
As a footnote, in February 2018, Lloyd’s Register also endorsed Al-Hadid for the provision of in-water survey of ships and mobile offshore units.
Al-Hadid has also been appointed by James Fisher Defense (JFD) as its authorized agents and distributors for the sales and maintenance of its products.
On 17 January 2017, Al-Hadid managed to bring together about 60 Participants to attend a Commercial Diving Safety Seminar. It was organised at Indera Kayangan Ballroom, The Empire Hotel & Country Club of Brunei Darussalam.
The objective was to raise awareness of working underwater safely through sharing knowledge and experiences from the international scene as well as the professional norms of working underwater.
The Seminar was officiated by Yang Berhormat Dato Seri Setia Awang Hj Mustappa bin Hj Sirat, Minister of Communications of Brunei Darussalam.
Two distinguished personalities in the commercial diving industry gave very stimulating presentations: Mr. Abdul Malik, Chairman, Commercial Diving Association Singapore, and Mr. Darren Brunton, Managing Director, KB Associates Pte. Ltd, Singapore. The participants came from the oil & gas industries, shipping companies and relevant government agencies.
Another experienced local air diver, Mohd Fardhillah bin Mudin, from Al-Hadid Marine Services has completed a very intensive IMCA Trainee Supervisor Course at KBA Training Centre in Singapore. Al-Hadid sponsored his attendance and Alhamdulillah he passed satisfactorily and is now actively clocking the last few hours before IMCA final assessment to become a full-fledged Air Diving Supervisor.
Al-Hadid is committed to employ and develop enterprising local talents in this commercial diving industry. Opportunities are available in a number of specialised skills for employment in this sector such as Air Supervisors, Bell Supervisors, Dive Technicians, Dive Medic Technicians and HSE Officers.
This year 2016, Al-Hadid was honoured and privileged to be amongst 95 local companies being invited to the annual festive gathering organized by the Sultan Haji Hassanal Bolkiah Foundation (Yayasan) on 30 July 2016 at the Plenary Hall of the International Convention Centre (ICC).
This is the 13th year the celebration was held which normally has a theme relating to elements of the community that has importance contribution to the national development and socio-economy of the country. This year it is targeting the youth group in the professional fields and the young entrepreneurs.
The Celebration was graced by His Majesty Sultan Haji Hassanal Bolkiah Mu’izzaddin Waddaulah ibni Al-Marhum Sultan Haji Omar ‘Ali Saifuddien Sa’adul Khairi Waddien, Sultan and Yang Di-Pertuan of Brunei Darussalam and Her Majesty Duli Raja Isteri Pengiran Anak Hajah Saleha binti Al-Marhum Pengiran Pemancha Pengiran Anak Haji Mohamed Alam, together with other members of the royal family.
One of the highlight of the event was the Junjung Ziarah (royal greeting) with the young participants by Their Majesties and members of the royal family. The event also featured an exhibition which provided another opportunity to their Majesties and the royal family having a closer look and mingling informally with the participants.
Daulat Kabawah Duli Tuan Patek.
Al-Hadid (B) Sdn Bhd was invited by Universiti Brunei Darussalam (UBD) to participate in its Convocation Festival “Pesta Convo”, marking the University’s 27th Convocation. One of the activities organized for the Festival was an Exhibition to showcase the achievements and efforts of UBD in contributing to the nation’s development and knowledge economy, especially through the active role of its youth.
The Festival was officially launched on 5th September 2015 by His Royal Highness Prince Doctor Haji Al-Muhtadee Billah ibni His Majesty Sultan Haji Hassanal Bolkiah Mu’izzaddin Waddaulah, the Crown Prince and Senior Minister at the Prime Minister’s Office and Pro-Chancelor of Universiti Brunei Darussalam. Al-Hadid was one of the companies that had gone through UBD’s Incubation Program at its Entrepreneurial Village last year 2014, under the mentorship of Professor Dr. Steven K Gold from Babson College, Boston, USA.
Alhamdulillah Al-Hadid’s full time personnel’s has grown from 4, when it was incorporated to a Sendirian Berhad last September 2014, to 14 this September 2015. All the full time staff are locals and it has more specialised divers from the region on its data base, which could be called upon on a needs basis. It has also acquired a new office with a fully equipped workshop and also secured a number of commercial diving jobs, including one naval tender from the Ministry of Defense, Brunei Darussalam.
On hand to brief His Royal Highness the Crown Prince was Al-Hadid’s Managing Director, Dk Reda Farizah and its Senior Diver Awang Hishamuddin Hussin.
Al-Hadid Marine Services is pleased to have sponsored two local commercial divers, Addie Iskandar Reni and Rohizam Ibrahim, to attend an intensive IMCA Trainee Supervisor Course at KBA Training Center in Singapore. Alhamdulillah, they have not only completed the course, but we would like to congratulate them for their excellent performance. We wish them every single success in advancing their diving career towards the next level of becoming a full-fledged Air Diving Supervisor in the near future.
Al-Hadid is committed to employ and develop enterprising local talents in this commercial diving industry. Opportunities are available in a number of specialised skills for employment in this sector such as Air Supervisors, Bell Supervisors, Dive Technicians, Dive Medic Technicians, HSE Officers and the list goes on.
Last September 2014, Al-Hadid Marine Services (B) Sdn Bhd was commissioned by Tri-Star Shipping and Trading Co. Sdn. Bhd. to assist in the unloading of three new tug boats from a mother vessel berthed at Muara Port of Brunei Darussalam. On hand to do the work was a team of local commercial divers from Al-Hadid Marine Services (B), led by its Managing Director Dk Reda Farizah Ismail. According to Dk Reda, the core business of her company is in commercial diving services, mainly for the oil & gas industry and the shipping industry as well as dams, reservoirs and large community water storage tanks. Commercial diving is different from scuba diving: Scuba diving is recreational and mainly at shallow waters. While commercial diving is more of a skilled profession, and each diver must be accredited to an internationally recognised marine authority, eg International Marine Contractors Association (IMCA). The equipments used are more elaborate and specialized.
Currently Brunei Darussalam has about twenty five local air-divers who have IMCA-recognised accreditation and hopefully a few will graduate to the level of Air Diving Supervisor in the very near future. Most of them have invested personally to undergo the required training programs, at IMCA-approved institutions, e.g. Australian Divers Accreditation Scheme (ADAS) in Australia. Dk Reda further added: “Alhamdulillah, the unloading job went smoothly. I am encouraged of the excellent cooperation rendered to us, from the relevant authorities of Brunei Darussalam like Marine Department, Port Department, Marine Police of the RBPF and the Royal Brunei Navy of the RBAF. Terima kasih semuanya”
