ELSS specialises in aquarium and oceanarium engineering and manufacturing and contributed work to the world’s largest aquarium, SeaWorld Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates.

The new contract, for an undisclosed sum, is on a major unnamed aquarium in Singapore. 

ELSS Engineering will use a seven-figure HSBC UK Trade Finance package to begin the construction of the aquarium project.

Works on the oceanarium are scheduled to finish later this year.

Jeffrey Martin McAteer, chair of the board of directors at ELSS Engineering, said: “The Board of Directors are excited to have secured this exciting new contract in Singapore thanks to HSBC’s international banking capabilities. Being able to operate on a global scale allows us to work on some of the largest aquariums around the world. Through our work we hope to show younger generations the varied career possibilities engineering can bring!”

Lauren Dougherty, relationship director at HSBC UK, said: “It has been great to have been able to cement ELSS Engineering’s position on the global stage and help facilitate a new contract in Singapore. We are excited to continue supporting its success as it works on projects around the world.”
