Subsea operator DeepOcean has acquired French company Searov Offshore.
Searov, established in 2008, is an ROV service provider with a strong focus on West Africa. The company owns and operates 10 remote operated vehicles (ROVs) from its operating bases in Pointe Noire, Congo and Port Gentil, Gabon.
“This acquisition will allow DeepOcean to expand its West Africa operations from its current operations in Ghana into other countries in West Africa such as Congo, Gabon and Ivory Coast. Africa is a key region for DeepOcean and building a platform for the provision of life-of-field subsea services to our customers is one of our main strategic objectives,” said Henk van den Ijssel, DeepOcean’s managing director for the Africa region.
