Deepocean said that through the completion of the wind down and with further secured long-term financing from its lenders and owners, the company is now on a sound financial footing with a strong platform for further growth.

Øyvind Mikaelsen, CEO of DeepOcean welcomed the approval of the plan for a solvent wind-down, which was based on a difficult, but necessary decision following a long period of sustained losses for the division.

“The company can now move forward with a sound financial footing, and our strategy and ambition to be the leading, globally recognised, locally differentiated, subsea services provider remains,” Mikaelsen concluded.
