Subsea services group Acteon has completed the acquisition of US geosciences survey company TerraSond.

Alaska-headquartered TerraSond works for clients in oil and gas, renewables, engineering and mining, telecommunications, marine construction and public sectors.

It has a track record of executing remote and challenging surveys ranging from inland works to deep ocean seabed exploration and mapping projects.

TerraSond president Tom Newman said: “We are excited to be joining Acteon; leveraging their resources and global coverage will enable us to deliver even more high-quality work to our clients while providing long-term growth and opportunity for our talented and dedicated employees.

“TerraSond’s focus on both innovative and proven geospatial and geophysical offerings complements Acteon’s survey capabilities.”

Acteon chief executive Richard Higham said: “The addition to the group of TerraSond, with its early-cycle capability, alongside the recently announced acquisition of Benthic, enhances Acteon’s existing very strong survey business and the development of a truly comprehensive global offering.”

TerraSond will continue to be led by Tom Newman and his management team.
