Post-Brexit reseller partnership unlocks efficiencies in the European and UK marine survey sectors
Global subsea equipment rental company Seatronics, an Acteon company, and hydrographic equipment provider Subsea Europe Services GmbH (SES) have this week signed a reseller agreement to share capabilities, mutually expand their rental and sales portfolios, and optimise access and logistics for in-demand marine and subsea equipment rental.
Headquartered in Aberdeen with regional facilities in Abu Dhabi, Houston and Singapore, Seatronics has strengthened its network in mainland Europe through the partnership with SES. Likewise, SES will leverage Seatronics’ global footprint to improve availability of the integrated Hydrographic Survey System (iHSS) – an innovative proprietary solution which integrates everything needed for multibeam surveys in a single pre-configured package.
“Our partnership with SES positions us strategically to optimise services and continue to meet demand in Europe with streamlined logistics post-Brexit,” said Brett Laurenson, Sales Director, Seatronics. “We are also keen to bring the SES-engineered iHSS into our portfolio as it fits a global need for technology that simplifies the deployment of hydroacoustic technology for multibeam surveys on diverse vessels of opportunity.”
“Joining forces with Seatronics is in line with our ambition to simplify the acquisition of marine data through innovation in both technology and logistics,” adds Sören Themann, CEO, Subsea Europe Services Gmbh. “Critical to this is our transformation to the one-stop-shop model where in collaboration with Seatronics, we can provide all the required equipment and support for any marine survey campaign, as a single supplier from our facility in Northern Europe and through our Partner serving the Mediterranean market.”
