Subsea tooling specialist Seanic Ocean Systems is pleased to announce a strategic distributor agreement with Norwegian firm Envirent AS.

The strategic agreement entitles Envirent AS to become a representative agent for Seanic in Norway, bringing an extensive range of specialist subsea tools and hardware into Envirent’s existing rental portfolio.

Headquartered in Houston, Texas, US, with support offices in Aberdeen, Singapore and Perth Australia, Seanic designs and manufactures products and solutions for ROVs to interface with subsea hardware.

Through the distribution agreement Seanic and Envirent are working together to bring customers operating in the Norwegian market an extensive range of specialist subsea rental equipment including recently released API 17H class 1- 4 electrical torque tools.

Seanic president Tom Ayars said: "We recognise the need to build strong partnerships in key global markets to support our growth. Envirent AS is an attractive opportunity to service our clients in Norway. We share ambitious development plans and we are looking forward to developing our relationship, and together presenting a competitive offering in the Norwegian Subsea market place."

Envirent AS is part of Envirex Group and operates its own rental fleet of equipment related to subsea completion, installation, maintenance and other activities related to underwater installations.

Commenting on the new relationship, Envirent managing director Bjorn Tore Lien said: "Our collaborative effort with Seanic provides an exciting opportunity for us and for our customers. Seanic has developed a vast range of specialist tools which will expand our existing range of rental-equipment. We’re looking forward to presenting this in the market."

Tom added: "Complementing our product portfolio and commitment to specialist subsea solutions, Envirent provides an ideal platform for our expansion in the region. Seanic has continued to grow since its inception in 2007, and the capabilities with this new strategic agreement will allow Seanic and Envirent to expand upon the products and services that our customers have come to expect from us."
