Acteon Group Ltd has acquired subsea corrosion specialist Deepwater Corrosion Services Inc. The addition of Deepwater’s expertise and portfolio strengthens Acteon’s ability to help its customers to manage the integrity of critical subsea infrastructure throughout the life of a field.
Deepwater is a global leader in subsea corrosion control for all asset types, including oil and gas platforms and wind turbines. The company operates from facilities in the USA, the UK, Brazil, Norway and Australia. It has designed, built and installed more offshore cathodic protection systems than any other company and provides highly respected corrosion investigation and subsea inspection services.
The acquisition greatly enhances Acteon’s subsea integrity management offering. It adds to the group’s already deep technical knowledge of corrosion engineering, problem solving and retrofit solutions, and expands its capabilities in data collection, surveying, engineering analytics and repair solutions for risers, moorings, seabed foundations and other subsea infrastructure.
“Our corrosion-control experience stretches back over 30 years,” says Jim Britton, Deepwater President and Chief Executive Officer. “We continue to lead the way in corrosion control and offer a suite of services around the world. I am excited by the opportunity within Acteon to grow our business and to provide more integrated subsea solutions throughout the life of a field that enhance efficiency and reduce costs for our customers.”
