James Fisher Marine Services (JFMS) has acquired the operations and assets of Insight Marine Projects Ltd., a specialist survey company headquartered in Cornwall, that will be rebranded this year to form the subsea surveying division of marine projects at JFMS.
Insight, which has a developed an excellent reputation within the surveying market for the supply of coastal, inshore and offshore services, further enhances JFMS’s extensive in-house capability. The purchase will see the addition of hydrographic/geophysical survey and construction support to JFMS’s existing offering to the renewables, oil and gas and civil engineering markets around the world.
The combination of assets and resource, alongside the recent purchase of the Cerys Line survey vessel, will doubly increase JMFS’s ability to support its customers with an enhanced, customer driven and truly integrated marine service offering.
“Our market leading marine service capabilities have been further strengthened through the purchase of Insight. Complementing our existing offering, we can now provide an even more comprehensive service to our customers globally,” says Richard Argall, managing director of marine projects at JFMS.
“Being part of JFMS means that Insight is now able to undertake larger and more complex surveying projects for customers around the world,” says Alex Richards, managing director of Insight.
