Spring 2017

Inspection, operation and insight

James Fisher Marine Services (JFMS) has made two important acquisitions which strengthen the company's offering to existing and potential clients.

The first addition is in the form of a complete acquisition of Rotos 360; a Norfolk-based wind turbine inspection and repair company, and the second development is the purchase of the operations and assets from Insight Marine Projects, based in Cornwall.

The innovative turbine curing technique which Rotos 360 has developed, and which is proven to reduce turbine downtime during essential maintenance, will enhance the JFMS renewables offering - helping the team deliver improved responsiveness and reduced costs.

Because Insight has a strong reputation for supplying coastal, inshore and offshore services, the acquisition will mean extended hydrographic/geophysical survey and construction support for JFMS's existing clients in the oil, gas and civil engineering markets around the world, as well as boosting potential services in renewables.

Richard Argall, managing director of marine projects at JFMS comments:

"Our market-leading marine service capabilities have been further strengthened through these purchases, which means we can now provide an even more comprehensive service to our customers globally."

The move also will also bring benefits to Rotos 360 and Insight, providing opportunities to work with other Group companies and introduce their services to James Fisher’s global customer base.

John Galliford, operations director of Rotos 360 added:

“I’m delighted that Rotos 360 is joining the James Fisher group. The opportunities this affords us, to increase the scope and scale of the projects we undertake for customers through access to the Group’s wider resources, is huge.”
