New Partnership Creates Combined Hydrography and Oceanography Portfolio - 15/01/2021


Subsea Europe Services (Hamburg, Germany) and Cyprus Subsea Consulting and Services (Nicosia, Cyprus) have entered into a new strategic cooperation to share knowledge and services that will simplify the acquisition of high-quality marine data for clients across Europe.

The agreement, which was signed on 1 January 2021, is the foundation for matching the extensive autonomous and long-term water column survey experience of Cyprus Subsea and Subsea Europe Services' seafloor surveying expertise to provide a harmonized hydrography and oceanography portfolio from a single, Europe-wide source. Additionally, both companies will share knowledge on the continuing development of autonomous solutions for marine surveying, which will help to bring high-quality marine data to more companies and organizations.   

Working closely together, the agreement facilitates a new local hub for Subsea Europe Services in the Mediterranean and extends the reach of Cyprus Subsea to northern Europe. Both partners will be positioned to provide gliders, moorings and related services from Cyprus Subsea, as well as Multibeam Echo Sounders (MBES), including the state-of-the-art integrated Hydroacoustic Survey System (iHSS) and ancillary equipment on a rental, sales or subscription basis from Subsea Europe Services.

Wide Range of Hydrographic Services

The combined portfolio of Subsea Europe Services and Cyprus Subsea includes a wide range of services, such as pre- and post-dredging surveys, passive acoustic monitoring of coastal and offshore regions, cable route surveys, UXO surveys and data processing and evaluation.

Sören Themann, CEO, Subsea Europe said: “Adding Cyprus Subsea to our team of trusted partners brings a new dimension to our activity. While extending our geographical reach is in line with our next-day delivery goals, the capability to characterize oceanographic processes in and around hydrographic survey sites will give our clients a more complete picture of their study regions and how they are changing.”

Cyprus Subsea managing director, Daniel Hayes, added: “We recently decided to invest in increasing capacity for seafloor surveying and recognized that the complexity of hydrographic survey equipment combined with a lack of accessible expertise are holding back many organizations from collecting the data they need. In the same way that our autonomous platforms help users to obtain data painlessly, working with Subsea Europe will solve these problems.”
