SHARJAH, UAEUnique Group has acquired GSE Rentals (Geophysical Survey Equipment). The company rents geophysical, hydrographic, and oceanographic marine survey equipment.

GSE Rentals is now wholly owned by Unique Group and the company’s workforce will be retained. Former owner, Stan Moroney, will continue as business advisor and consultant to Unique Group.

The company says that by acquiring GSE Rentals, it can strengthen its presence in non-oil and gas markets, with a focus on offshore renewable energy projects, submarine cables, dredging, ports and harbors, and civil projects.

GSE Rentals will continue to operate from its facility in Aberdeen, UK.

Andy Doggett, director of Unique Group’s survey equipment division, said: “GSE Rentals is a well-respected company that offers a high level of technical support and knowledge to its global customers.

“The advantage to GSE Rentals’ customers is that it will now be able to provide enhanced global support through Unique Group’s bases in the Middle East, South Africa, India, the Netherlands, Singapore, and the USA.”
