2022 was a tremendous year for Reach Subsea. Not only did we reach record high revenue and operation profit, but we also broadened our offering through the successful integration of iSurvey and Octio, secured a long-term core fleet on highly attractive terms, strengthened our balance sheet, entered a strategic partnership with Wilhelmsen and advanced our Reach Remote project, which is bringing us into the robotic future.Jostein Alendal, CEO
Reach Subsea is well positioned in a rapidly growing market driven by high activity in the oil & gas sector as well as an accelerating green energy transition.
We have a solid growth outlook both short- and long-term. Our order backlog, counted from the start of 2023, is NOK 780 million, 7 times higher than one year earlier. With a complete subsea offering and state of the art technology, we are ready and able to capture the market opportunities with a renewed and cost-effective fleetJostein Alendal, CEO
According to Reach Subsea’s Sustainability report, 14 of the company’s 16 sustainability goals were achieved in 2022.
As a company working on and below our beautiful oceans with a significant oil & gas related activity, a credible and ambitious sustainability strategy is essential to be able to attract talent, customers, and capital. Our ambitions for the years to come are high, and we are proud to be one of the leading forces in the industry when it comes to remote operations and robotization. Our two first Reach Remote unmanned surface vessels are expected to be launched towards the end of this year. With 90 percent lower emissions than a traditional vessel, Reach Remote will be a strong contributor to the net zero emission goal both we and our customers are working towardsJostein Alendal, CEO
