After James Fisher and Sons took over Hughes Sub Surface Engineering Limited (HSSE) last year and Rotos 360 in March, the company’s unit dedicated to marine renewables, James Fisher Marine Services (JFMS), has acquired Insight Marine Projects – a specialist survey company headquartered in Cornwall.
Insight, specialised in surveying market for the supply of coastal, inshore and offshore services, will add hydrographic/geophysical survey and construction support to JFMS’s existing offering to the renewables, oil and gas and civil engineering markets around the world, JFMS said.
Insight Marine Projects will be rebranded during 2017 to form the subsea surveying division of marine projects at James Fisher Marine Services.
Richard Argall, managing director of marine projects at JFMS said: “Our market leading marine service capabilities have been further strengthened through the purchase of Insight. Complementing our existing offering, we can now provide an even more comprehensive service to our customers globally.
“Insight is known for its first class subsea survey expertise and we are very happy they are joining the JFMS team.”
