Argeo’s backlog increases 1500% YoY to 550m and up 130% from Q3 2023: Substantial contract awards, operational milestones, successful private placements and strong backlog for 2024

Feb 23, 2024 | News

Asker, 23.02.2024: Our revenue continues to develop YoY, but reduced from Q3 due to extended yard stay for Argeo Searcher in preparation for coming projects. “Our goal is to retain the competitive advantage of being a technology leader within subsea services. Looking ahead, we are optimistic about the future, with a strong contract backlog at the start of the year and good potential for continued growth for 2024 and following years”, says Trond Crantz, CEO of Argeo.

Argeo is actively participating in tendering processes, as well as engaging in business development discussions with local companies globally across its three markets; Oil&Gas, Marine Minerals and Offshore Wind.

“The recent contracts awards and backlog affirm Argeo’s technology position, and we expect strong growth in our three markets. We look forward to creating value for our shareholders and continue with our strong momentum and position in fuelling growth”, says Crantz.

The global energy transition is fuelling the growth for new value chains, such as batteries, wind-power, solar-power and electrical infrastructure. Developing these value chains are likely to require a significantly higher supply of minerals, and Argeo is happy to see Norway taking on a globally leading position in fuelling the development of marine minerals exploration.
