OEG Renewables has announced its acquisition of GEOSIGHT, a UK specialist marine surveying company operating across a range of sectors, including offshore renewable energy, subsea cables and civils in the UK and Europe.
GEOSIGHT was founded by Brian and Kirsten Gamet in 2016 and provides hydrographic and multi-sensor geophysical surveys, marine engineering, and dimensional control surveys, and boasts a team of skilled surveyors based at its head office in Salisbury, Wiltshire, England.
By joining forces with group company Manor Renewable Energy (MRE) and the GEOSIGHT survey team led by Alex Richards (above left), OEGR aims to strengthen its survey and positioning offering in UK and overseas markets.
GEOSIGHT will operate under the guidance of Brian Gamet as managing director (above right), supported by Richards as operations director.
“After 7 years of hard work and dedication to building GEOSIGHT around a set of core principles, the decision to join OEG Renewables was, in the end, simple,” said GEOSIGHT managing director Gamet.
“OEGR and GEOSIGHT’s philosophies are clear, the key motivation is to deliver services defined for their quality and professionalism.
“We wanted to work with like-minded people, who want to deliver services in an ethical and professional manner whilst empowering diversity, autonomy, and creativity, and that’s what we have with OEGR.
“Naturally, I am therefore delighted to begin this new and exciting chapter and to continue the growth of the survey division within the OEGR family.”
OEG Renewables managing director Eric Briar added: “We are thrilled to welcome GEOSIGHT to the OEG Renewables family.
“This acquisition aligns with our strategic vision of expanding our presence in the survey market and utilising our combined resources to better serve our clients. GEOSIGHT’S track record of delivering high-quality surveying services and their strong relationship with MRE make them an ideal partner for us.”
Recent contracts include the completion of a large-scale hydrographic survey within Scapa Flow and Kirkwall Bay in Orkney, paving the way for the development of a new deepwater facility to support wind farm expansion off the coast of Scotland.
