A newly established state-of-the-art subsea equipment and service company, GoSubsea, has launched its Norway-based facility, which will cater to the requirements of Scandinavian customers across the oil and gas, renewables, aquaculture, and educational research industries.

The inhouse technical team, specialising in subsea rental and product development, is led by General Manager, Helge Knutsen. Knutsen has spent over 10 years with a Norwegian-headquartered provider of electronic engineering, equipment and technical solutions to the global subsea industry, latterly in the position of Managing Director.

Providing bespoke solutions and an extensive technical knowledge, GoSubsea aims to deploy UES 2.5 million worth of assets to fulfil its customers’ individual requirements over the coming years. The company’s comprehensive subsea survey equipment rental fleet includes subsea positioning, ROV sensors, inspection equipment, NDT, cables and connectors as well as environmental, hydrographic and geophysical sensors. Its growth strategy includes expansion into the autonomous survey segment during 2021.

Knutsen comments, “GoSubsea is a forward thinking, agile organisation, which offers both bespoke and widely applicable solutions at competitive costs. Our skilled team provides specialist knowledge of the industries in which our customers operate – particularly the emerging offshore wind sector, as well as an in-depth understanding of the Scandinavian market. This positions us as an ideal choice for clients in the local region.”

The company has already formed partnerships with leading survey equipment brands and is planning to enhance its offering by including inhouse product development.
