Partrac Steps Into US Market

Scottish-based marine survey and coastal consultancy company Partrac has launched its US subsidiary Partrac GeoMarine Inc.

Based in Houston, Texas, Partrac GeoMarine offers the full range of services and products as its parent company in Europe, including services and consultancy for engineering and environmental projects in challenging marine environments around the world, the company said.

“Houston is the ideal US hub for Partrac GeoMarine,” said Partrac Co-Founder Sam Athey. “We wanted a city with a highly skilled workforce that reflects the wide range of market sectors that Partrac operates in and is within easy reach of both the Gulf and East coasts of the United States. We see these as having the biggest growth potential for our services and products.”

Partrac has a number of unique technologies it wants to bring to the US to help solve some of the problems and answer some of the questions, Athey said, emphasizing that the company's sediment tracing and benthic flume technologies have been used to help with scour around offshore monopiles, as well as free spanning of pipes and cables.

“Our experience gained over the last 15 years collecting MetOcean data and working on wind farm installations in European waters – including the world’s first floating wind farm – puts us in a great position to assist the growing offshore renewables market in the US.”

Partrac has worked on a number of offshore wind projects in Europe, the most recent being the Hywind Scotland floating wind farm, as well as the Kincardine floating wind project.
