Sigma Industry West takes over Aker Solutions’ unit in Gothenburg with 90 employees and becomes a leading provider of underwater technology engineering services. The acquisition is part of the strategy to expand the business to include energy and marine constructions.
The acquired unit mainly delivers complete product design and project engineering for the oil and gas industry. It also works in green marine-based energy, an area that Sigma expects to grow within. The business has expertise in various facets of subsea technology.
“The acquisition is a strategic step in order to broaden our expertise and strengthen our offering within subsea, energy and marine structures. The expertise is mainly applied within oil and gas production from the seabed but also in energy recovery such as offshore wind and wave power. Further the employees in Gothenburg have a very high level of technical expertise demanded by our customers in other industries,” says Jens Wickström, CEO of Sigma Industry West.
Sigma and Aker Solutions have signed a framework agreement to ensure continued delivery of key competences in the future. This makes Aker Solutions one of Sigma Industry West’s biggest customers.
Sigma Industry West delivers top competence in the areas of product development, analysis & simulation, industrial design and project management. The company was founded 2 years ago as part of the Sigma Group. Visit sigmaindustrywest.se for more information.
