N-Sea Group has concluded the full acquisition of Geo Plus based in Groningen, the Netherlands. Geo Plus – established in 1994 – is a worldwide operating service provider in the survey industry with a fleet of five highly specialised survey vessels.

This acquisition will play a key role in realising N-Sea’s ambition to become the subsea services contractor of choice. By acquiring Geo Plus, N-Sea increases its capacity and capabilities in the field of shallow water hydrographic surveys, both geophysical and geotechnical.

Geo Plus has now become member of the N-Sea Group, but will continue to operate as an independent company out of the same office in Groningen and with the same team.

Patrick Defilet, managing director of Geo Plus states: ‘I’m extremely happy that Geo Plus has become part of N-Sea, safeguarding our growth ambitions with a partner that is very successful in the current markets and allowing us to take full advantage of their organisational capabilities and resources, an excellent starting point for an integrated market approach.’

Five specialised survey vessels

The five vessels in the Geo Plus fleet are the Geo Ranger, Geo Focus, Geo Explorer, Geo Motion, and Geo Connection. The vessels are currently operating on long term projects in Europe and the Middle East.

The fuel-efficient vessels are well equipped for all types of geophysical surveys and inspection activities.
