James Fisher Grabs X-subsea Assets

James Fisher has purchased the assets and intellectual property rights of X-Subsea for a total consideration of £14.8m.

Headquartered in Aberdeen, X-Subsea went into administration on April 27 2015 following the collapse of its Norwegian parent company Reef Subsea AS.

X-Subsea, a designer and operator of specialised excavation, trenching and dredging equipment, which is rented and operated for subsea operations in the oil & gas, telecoms and renewable energy sectors, was the main competitor of James Fisher Mass Flow Excavation, operating from bases in Aberdeen, Dubai, Singapore, and the Gulf of Mexico. Its equipment and tools, many of which are patented, are used in challenging environments to prevent damage to pipelines, cables, structures and the environment.

Nick Henry, Chief Executive Officer of James Fisher, said: “The transaction strengthens and consolidates our position in subsea services, and will enable James Fisher to become the global leader in mass flow excavation.”

EC Hambro Rabben & Partners acted as corporate adviser to James Fisher and Sons plc.
