Okeanus to Represent MacArtney in Offshore Brazil

The MacArtney Group has announced the signing of a representative agreement with Okeanus Ltda. to function as the official representative of MacArtney underwater technology products on the Brazilian market. Following similar deals signed with companies Cledirsa (Uruguay) and Alakaluf (Chile), the agreement with Okeanus marks the third South American strengthening of the global MacArtney representative network within the scope of just six months.

Founded by marine scientist Laura Azevedo and her father in 2007, Okeanus is a technical consulting company offering products, services and sales representation in the field of oceanography, hydrology, meteorology and environmental monitoring. The Okeanus HQ is located on the Copacabana in in Rio de Janeiro where day-to-day operations are overseen by sales manager, Carolina Azevedo.

Supported by office, warehouse and tooling facilities, Okeanus is able to provide installation, maintenance and technical support for all products and services offered. Beyond representing MacArtney, Okeanus also supports the offerings of other renowned industry operators such as Sequoia and WET Labs.

A win-win partnership?The story of MacArtney and Okeanus joining forces on the Brazilian market is also the story of meaningful strategic focus, vast potential and mutual benefits. First of all, Okeanus will gain access to the entire portfolio of MacArtney products and systems, from subsea connectors and cables, through underwater telemetry and cameras to marine winch and handling systems. This marks a significant strengthening of the company’s ability to quote large scale projects and provide integrated solutions.

Connecting to subsea potential?As further testimony to the good reputation that Okeanus enjoys with the Brazilian oil and gas industry, the company holds a status as ‘registered supplier’ with Petronect (Petrobras pre-approved supplier). Within this context, MacArtney is keen to promote its diverse range of high quality offerings to this high-potential market, hereunder the TrustLink and TrustLink API ranges of subsea connectivity solutions for use in harsh and strictly regulated applications and environments.
