Subsea Innovation announces major contract win with Subsea 7

More...

 

 

Subsea Innovation Ltd, part of Tekmar Group plc, has announced a major contract win with Subea7.

Subsea Innovation is a world leader in the design, manufacture and supply of complex engineered equipment and technology used in the offshore energy market.

Subsea Innovation recently developed a next-generation seal for their Pipe in Pipe Waterstops, designed to deal with issues experienced when using High Frequency Welded (HFW) pipes and seam welded pipes which are being introduced within the industry as part of cost-saving measures.

Subsea Innovation are the only supplier in the world to have successfully tested Waterstop seals with a proven record on HFW and seam welded pipes. HFW or seam welded pipes often require localised polishing to improve the sealing ability; whereas Subsea Innovation’s next-generation SIStop® Waterstop Seal eliminates the need for this, sealing on pipes with greater surface defects and impurities.

The next-generation seals were designed and developed from Subsea Innovation’s head office in Darlington.

Following the announcement, the new SIStop® Waterstop Seal will be used on two Norwegian projects including the Skogul project for Aker BP and the Wintershall Nova project.

Dave Thompson, Managing Director of Subsea Innovation, said: “Winning these projects for a client as prestigious as Subsea 7 is recognition of the hard work of the team.”

Subsea Innovation Limited are one of Tekmar Group plc’s three primary operating companies; in addition to Tekmar Energy Limited and AgileTek Engineering Limited.

Subsea Innovation products range from large equipment handling systems which operate on the back of installation vessels, pipeline repair clamps which protect major oil and gas pipelines, and equipment for the construction of offshore oil and gas projects. The business also has an engineering design team who develop world-leading concepts for some of the world’s most challenging environments.

Tekmar Group’s vision is to become the partner of choice for the supply and installation support of subsea protection equipment to the global offshore energy markets.

What are Waterstops and Pipe In Pipe (PIP) systems?

Pipe In Pipe systems are two concentric pipes often consisting an inner pipe or flowline, and an outer pipe or carrier pipe. Centralisers are placed between the carrier pipe and flowline to keep the flowline centered, minimising contact with the environment, therefore reducing the amount of insulation required. The annulus between the two pipes can be filled with air or a passive thermal insulation to reduce heat loss. Waterstop Seals provide a solution for isolating a section of flooded annulus by preventing water passage to the adjacent Pipe-In-Pipe sections during installation and normal operation.

 

Tekmar Group announces proposed acquisition of Subsea Innovation

Tekmar plc logo

Tekmar Group plc, a market-leading technology provider of protection systems for subsea cable, umbilical and flexible pipes and offshore engineering services, is pleased to announce that it has today signed a sale and purchase agreement for the acquisition of Subsea Innovation Ltd. The Proposed Acquisition is subject to shareholder approval.

The proposed acquisition represents the Group’s first transaction since its successful AIM admission in June 2018, launching the Group’s strategy to acquire offshore energy businesses which have a clear technology focus, have complementary customer bases and can leverage Group support. Subsea Innovation, which currently operates largely in the global oil and gas market will bring world-class engineering in the design, development and manufacture of back deck equipment and subsea pipeline repair clamps (“EPRC”) to Tekmar’s portfolio, along with a blue chip client list and a skilled engineering team.

James Ritchie, CEO of Tekmar Group plc, said:

“When we floated on AIM we promised investors a dynamic business with a clear plan for the future. Today is just one part of the implementation of that plan and we are delighted to welcome Subsea Innovation into the Tekmar Group.”

He continued “As we continue through into 2019, you will continue to see us work towards our vision to become the partner of choice for the supply and installation support of subsea protection technology to the global energy markets. We will continue to put clients first and continue to innovate to remain at the forefront of the world’s offshore energy industries.”

Background

Subsea Innovation is a world leader in the design, manufacture and supply of complex engineered equipment and technology used in the offshore energy market. Its products range from large equipment handling systems which operate on the back of installation vessels, pipeline repair clamps which protect major oil and gas pipelines, and equipment for the construction of offshore oil and gas projects. The business also has an extremely skilled engineering design team who develop world-leading concepts for some of the world’s most challenging and exciting projects.

Subsea Innovation employs 27 skilled staff, including a highly experienced management team, all of whom will remain with the business post acquisition.

The addition of Subsea Innovation’s engineering team will add 16 specialist engineers to aid the development of new products for Group companies; in addition to adding long standing relationships with key EPC clients such as Technip FMC, Saipem and Subsea7 and oil and gas operators including the likes of BP, Shell and Total.

Subsea Innovation and Tekmar have shared heritage. In 2011, Tekmar Subsea Limited, originally founded by two commercial divers in 1985, divided to form two new entities Tekmar Energy Limited and Subsea Innovation Ltd.

Alasdair MacDonald, Non-executive Chairman of Tekmar, said:

“Given the heritage, focus on engineering excellence, complementary products, shared markets and Subsea Innovation’s track record in the delivery of back deck deployment equipment, the Board of Tekmar believes the acquisition is an excellent commercial, cultural and technical fit.”

He continued “Our vision is to continue building on Tekmar’s position as the global leader in subsea cable protection systems in the offshore wind market and to become the partner of choice for the supply of subsea protection equipment to the global energy markets. Subsea Innovation bring new capabilities, new markets and strong cross selling opportunities to the Group. Subsea Innovation’s blue chip global client base will open up new sales opportunities for our offshore wind business. Equally, we expect Subsea Innovation to benefit from Tekmar’s trusted name in offshore wind, opening up sales and supply chain opportunities for the previously wholly oil and gas focused business.”

Dave Thompson, Managing Director of Subsea Innovation, added:

“The team at Subsea Innovation is hugely excited by this move and view it as the start of the next phase in the development of our business. The oil and gas market is already showing clear signs of recovery; Tekmar’s backing and its global offices and support functions would enable us to capitalise on this upturn and make strides towards our goal to become a global leader in both oil and gas and offshore wind.”

Subsea Innovation will continue to trade under its own name and remain as a separate legal entity. There will be no disruption or change for its customers.
