Hydrographic marine survey company Nicola Offshore and Cyprus Subsea Consulting and Services (CSCS) have signed a commercial partnership agreement
The companies stated their goal is to share knowledge and resources “to unlock new efficiencies for acquiring marine data using multibeam echosounders, subsea gliders and ocean monitoring instruments.”
Nicola Offshore was established in March 2021 as a joint venture between Nicola Engineering (an established marine survey provider) and Dutch workboat manufacturer ProMarine to bring technical expertise to the more specialist aspects of marine data acquisition such as object and unexploded ordinance search to the partnership.
CSCS specialises in marine robotics and autonomous systems and will contribute its expertise in subsea glider surveys and oceanographic sensors for marine monitoring, as well as its experience in automating aspects of marine environmental surveying.
Nicola Offshore managing director Daniel Esser said “The partnership helps to extend the reach of both companies, opening more opportunities to support clients in northern and southern Europe.”
“While the commercial potential is exciting, we’re also keen to extend our service platform with glider capabilities and expertise, and be part of developing new methodologies and processes together with CSCS that will enable us to expedite and secure the precision of the data we acquire on behalf of clients.”
“Nicola Offshore has demonstrated a unique focus on delivering high-quality marine data for demanding ad-hoc campaigns, which we feel strongly complements our existing services and technology portfolio,” said Cyprus Subsea managing director Dr Daniel Hayes.
