SubseaPartner has been a major diving contractor for the inshore market since the beginning of 1993, under the flag of Riise Underwater Engineering.

The transfer of Fugro RUE in 2013, was the birth of SubseaPartner supported by Cinclus Equity Partner and Cinclus IV as the major shareholder. By this takeover, the owners have given SPAS the financial strength to develop and make the Company to be the new contributor as a Diving Contractor on the North Sea basin, as well as other strategical global regions such as, but not limited to; Greater North Sea and South-East Asia

The clear vision is to be a global reference contractor specialised in manned underwater operations by providing services for floating production units and their subsequent infrastructure connected to these -from the shallowest depth, all the way to the seabed. This includes Air- and Saturation diving.

By shaping the future and meet the increasing demand of in -field support to the global fleet of floating production storage- and offloading units, SubseaPartner shall provide asset and competence, from early hook-up and riser pull-in to IRM and continued class programme.


Most of the project execution is performed by the same project personnel that have operated the vessel and spreads for more than 20 years. Our strengthening of staff positions has extensive experience from the international diving industry. Among other projects is repair work on FPSO’s, inspection, maintenance and repair campaigns. It is worth mentioning the very complex change of bearings which involves a subsea lifting operation on a 5000 tons concrete installation to commence the manned underwater operation.

We plan and execute our operations in accordance to NORSOK U-100 and IMCA D014 as a accredited Diving Contractor member of IMCA.
