On track building the fleet and services in a market with a strong outlook

May 19, 2022 | News

The first quarter proved that Argeo is steadily building the company’s fleet and services to meet an increased market demand:

  • Ordered a new Hugin 6000 from Kongsberg
  • Signed a 12-month project for the new Hugin 6000 AUV
  • Awarded a NOK 8.5 million contract from Statens Vegvesen for the Sea Raptor “Alpha”
  • Completed Sea Acceptance Testing (SAT) in the North-Sea
  • First Sea Raptor delivered in February 2022
  • Remaining work for the Hugin project in Brazil given new start-up in late May

– We are on track building our fleet and services. The overall market outlook is strengthening, and we see good interest and opportunity in the energy markets globally, says CEO Trond Crantz at Argeo.

Increased market demand
During the quarter a contract was awarded and completed subsequent to the quarter for Statens Vegvesen at the Bjørnafjorden crossing. The Company also won a contract with a duration of minimum 6 months with another optional six months and in parallel ordered a Hugin 6000 AUV with delivery in early second half of 2022.

– We are well positioned to profit from the increased market demand we are experiencing. The frequency and size of tender activity in the Americas, Europe and Africa are rising sharply proving Argeo’s commercial expansion and our plan for developing the North & South America geomarket as the right move at the right time, says Crantz.

– Local presence will prove crucial
Argeo’s plan is to establish regional offices to facilitate operations in key geographical areas. This implementation is giving the company strategic advantages along with in-depth local industry know-how with Argeo’s key customers.

– Our physical presence via local, solid partners in important markets like Brazil, the US, Western Africa, India, and South-East Asia, will prove crucial for our expansion going forward, says Crantz.

In April the Company raised NOK 75 million in a private placement. The net proceeds from the Private Placement will fund investments in new AUVs and ramp-up of organisation as well as for general corporate purposes.
