Acteon boosts data gathering and geoscience capabilities with UTEC acquisition

Subsea services provider Acteon has acquired the independent survey services firm, UTEC Survey. Acteon says the move will boost its data gathering and analysis and geoscience capabilities.

Starnet, which UTEC acquired in 2013, is of key interest to Acteon as it offers clients a customised web portal (StarNet iSite), which quickly gathers asset information.
Martin O’Carroll, who co-founded UTEC in 2005, will continue his role as CEO.

Another Acteon company, NCS Survey, already specializes in the survey and positioning arena.

UTEC has been active in construction support, rig moves and other subsea survey applications.
