Acteon has started Clarus Subsea Integrity Inc., a new Group company created from 2H Offshore’s subsea integrity business segment. Based in Houston, USA, the new company will commence operations in January 2015 and plans to expand globally.
Paul Alcock, executive vice president, Acteon, said, “Clarus is a service with its own brand identity, which will broaden the strong integrity capability developed at 2H over the past ten years. Clarus will support and enhance the subsea mechanical and electrical infrastructure segment of Acteon’s global business and will support growing Opex-oriented markets, particularly in the global context of ageing deepwater fields.”
Clarus will be led by John MacDonald and Dharmik Vadel, who previously managed subsea integrity activities within 2H Offshore. Vice president, MacDonald, said, “Clarus aims to become a unique pacesetter in global subsea integrity engineering by focusing on the essential operator objectives of compliance, uptime and efficiency.
