D`Appolonia takes controlling interest in Italian subsea specialist

Offshore staff

GENOA, Italy - D’Appolonia, an engineering consulting company owned by RINA Group, has acquired a majority stake in Fano-based SeaTech.

SeaTech, founded in 2000, provides analysis and design services for offshore pipelines, subsea systems and structures and metocean monitoring systems, and also on-site engineering supervision.

In 2000, the company worked for Saipem on the Blue Stream gas line project in the Black Sea, the first pipeline to be protected by polypropylene anti-corrosion coating.

Two years ago it performed front-end engineering design for the Bahr Essalam Phase 2 project offshore Libya for Tecnomare. Earlier in 2015, SeaTech delivered to operator Edison the met-marine and structural monitoring system for the Vega platform offshore Italy.

Roberto Carpaneto, CEO, D’Appolonia, said: “Having SeaTech as part of the group helps us to consolidate our engineering expertise…especially in the growth area of subsea systems and deep-water exploration.”
