Føn Energy Services will acquire 100 per cent of the shares in C-Ventus from current owner DISA International, a global provider of marine engineering, civil construction, and offshore oil and gas services.

The consideration consists primarily of shares in Føn Energy Services resulting in DISA controlling 22.67 per cent of class A shares in the company. Akastor and The IKM Group will both control 38.67 per cent of the Class A shares.

The parties have not disclosed the financial details of the transaction. Following the completion of the merger, C-Ventus will start to operate under the Føn Energy Services brand immediately.

C-Ventus is a provider of O&M services for the offshore wind market. The company’s expertise covers balance of plant services for both topside and subsea equipment, installation support, and decommissioning services.

“Our joint plan is to take C-Ventus’ well proven and highly efficient O&M operating model, apply it to Føn Energy Services, and use it as a catalyst for geographical expansion to the rest of Europe,” said Didier de Graaff, managing director of DISA International.
