Reach Subsea ASA Q1 2024 Presentation

The first quarter of 2024 proved to be another record-breaking period for Reach Subsea and underscoring our consistent growth in alignment with our strategic objectives. We are proud to report increased margins alongside our expansion, capitalizing on the infrastructure, vessels, assets, technology, and expertise cultivated over the past few years

Jostein Alendal, CEO of Reach Subsea

Dedicated to advancing robotization within the subsea sector, Reach Subsea achieved a significant milestone this quarter with the successful sea-launch of the Reach Remote USV. With two USVs slated for launch this season, the company boasts a robust pipeline of national and international projects that will suit these cutting-edge vessels well.

In addition to the Reach Remote debut, Reach Subsea is already harnessing the capabilities of smaller-scale USVs of the Drix type. The initial Drix USV has proven its worth by completing over 25,000 km of high-precision hydrographic survey lines. Strengthening their fleet, the company recently invested in a second Drix USV to support ongoing large-scale projects.

While demand remains robust across various market segments, we remain committed to investing in our traditional subsea services. Leveraging Remote Services enhances our capacity and serves as an ideal complement to meet the escalating demand and rapid expansion of market segments

Jostein Alendal, CEO of Reach Subsea

Furthermore, Reach Subsea’s order backlog continues to swell, reaching an impressive NOK 1.3 billion, a solid increase of 60 percent compared to the first quarter 2023. Significantly, the volume of tenders has now surged to NOK 10 billion, a substantial increase from the NOK 2.7 billion reported in the first quarter of 2023, highlighting the escalating market demand.

We are capitalizing on strong market demand and executing strategic initiatives with precision. The progress we have achieved is tangible, and we remain steadfast in our commitment to continued profitable growth

Jostein Alendal, CEO of Reach Subsea
