Our History

Our history goes back to 1993 when RIISE Underwater Engineering (RUE) was established.

The company acquired the Diving Support Vessel, Risøy and has performed a variety of diving work along the Norwegian coastline.
In 2010, RUE became a part of the Fugro group and gained good experience from inshore and offshore activities both in Europe and in Africa.
The transfer of Fugro RUE in 2013, was the birth of SubseaPartner supported by Cinclus Equity Partner and Cinclus IV as the major shareholder.

In the early years of SubseaPartner DSV Risøy and inshore dive operations was the company’s primary activity. The project team with DSV Risøy performed extremely demanding diving work on the Statpipe shore approach at Kalstø, west of Haugesund until spring 2022.

In 2016 we entered the offshore diving segment in the North Sea. From this point the Norwegian Continental Shelf and UK sector became the primary market for SubseaPartner. The investment in LDC Trust and LDC Venturer manifested this new direction.

From 2022 our strategy has been to offer subsea services to customers in the floating assets market offshore, near-shore and in-shore on NSC and UKCS.

Our Transparency Act Statement

SubseaPartner is committed to carry out due diligence in accordance with the Norwegian Transparency Act and OECD Guidelines.

Our commitment

SubseaPartner aims to be open and honest about how we conduct due diligence and promote respect for fundamental human rights and decent working conditions.

As an organisation we reject modern slavery in all its forms (including human trafficking, forced labour, child labour, debt bondage, work under threat of punishment and other forms of human exploitation) and are committed to maintain and develop further appropriate safeguards against the mistreatment of persons within our  supply chain and business. Our intention is to keep our supply chain transparent. We aim to ensure that our suppliers are contractually obliged to manage such risks and that we conduct audits of our suppliers in pursuit of this objective.

Our organisation and people

SubseaPartner has a team of 14 highly competent individuals working together to realize our company vision: We shall own the shallow deep. Our future floats safely.

Our performance and way of doing business is driven by our values:

  • We First
  • Deep Quality
  • Own It!
  • Always Safe

Our people are employed within functions such as Business Development, Operations, Finance, HSEQ, Assets & Technical, Supply Chain, Human Resources, Management and Administration.

SubseaPartner’s headquarters is in Haugesund, Norway.

Our operations

SubseaPartner’s core business is to provide safe and cost-efficient subsea services to customers in the floating assets market. Our experience from the North Sea within air diving and ROV intervention secures asset integrity of FPSOs/FPUs, Semi-subs and Floating Wind units. The primary market for these services and our operations is in Norway and the UK.

Due Dilligence

Our process for due diligence is based on “OECD Due Diligence Guidance for responsible business conduct”.

Activity 1: Overall risk evaluation

We are evaluating our suppliers on management level to evaluate whether we see a risk of negative impacts to basic human rights and decent working conditions through supplier audits.

We are evaluating the risks based on criteria’s such as country of operations, industry and yearly procurement spend. If we do not see any risk with the supplier, the evaluation will stop at this point in the process.

Step 2: Deep risk evaluation

If we do see a risk in Activity 1, we need to do a more detailed risk evaluation in Activity 2. We will evaluate the findings in Activity 1 against SubseaPartner’s knowledge about the supplier. If this is not sufficient, information and documentation will be collected from the supplier to make a full evaluation. If we then don’t see any risk with the supplier, the evaluation will stop at this point in the process. If the supplier is not able to satisfy the evaluation requirements of SubseaPartner then we will proceed to the next activity in the process.

Activity 3: Establish action plan

Activity 4:  Deliver on actions

In these activities we will use the findings from Activity 2 to create and implement an action plan to mitigate the risks identified. If necessary, our Partners or Collaborators will be involved in this step.

Activity 5: Lessons learned

In this step we evaluate the learnings from the process and the action taken. In this step we will confirm that the actions have resolved the identified risks and the negative impact has been reduced. Lessons learned in this step will be implemented to future processes.

Transparency Act Procedure

Subseapartner’s Transparency Act Procedure is based on our Human Rights Policy and prepared to provide guidance and instructions on the Company’s compliance and commitment to the act relating to enterprises’ transparency and work on fundamental human rights and decent working conditions. This shall ensure that the Company complies with the requirements of public access to information regarding how the Company address adverse impacts on fundamental human rights and decent working conditions.

This procedure is yearly reviewed and updated by management.

In case of finding adverse impact

In case SubseaPartner identifies adverse impacts through its due diligence process on fundamental human rights and decent working conditions, SubseaPartner will fulfill its legal obligations to publish the findings and measures to cease the adverse impact and actions implemented.
