Stork Technical Services today announced the acquisition of RBG Limited, the UK based supplier of inspect, assess and repair services to the global energy industry. RBG Limited, which in 2010 had revenues of c.£300m, has been acquired as a strategic addition to Stork Technical Services Holding B.V., a leading knowledge-based asset integrity management company with 2010 revenues of c.€1,000m. The acquisition was made through London Acquisition Luxco Sarl, the ultimate parent of Stork Technical Services. The cost of the acquisition and funding structures are not being disclosed.

The acquisition includes all of RBG’s primary activities in the UK, Europe, Americas, Caspian and the Middle East, as well as 4,500 personnel. The addition of RBG’s portfolio, which includes complex support services such as oil platform decommissioning, fabric maintenance, inspections services and access solutions, will provide Stork Technical Services’ clients with additional expertise and more choice from a single trusted partner. RBG’s clients will gain access to asset integrity management solutions focusing on maintenance, modification and overhaul of existing facilities for the oil & gas, power and chemicals industries.
