Fugro acquires SEA-KIT

Fugro reports that it has reached a binding agreement for the acquisition of the remaining shares in SEA-KIT International, a developer of uncrewed surface vessels (USVs) for maritime operations and research.

The two firms have collaborated for several years on USV technology development, which has included the delivery of a remotely operated USV and electric powered remotely operated vehicle (ROV) combi system for the offshore asset inspection and monitoring market.

“We are excited to welcome the talented SEA-KIT team into the Fugro family,” said Henk van Dalen, Director Blue Robotics at Fugro.

“We look forward to leveraging their knowledge and growing the SEA-KIT product offering to the maritime industry as we continue to drive innovation in this space. We are committed to ensuring a smooth integration process and will work closely with our new team members to maximise the value delivered to our combined customer base.”

The transaction is expected to be completed before the end of 2023, subject to customary closing conditions.
