GE to acquire Naxys, supplier of leak detection & condition monitoring sensors for subsea applications.

Naxys, is a Norway-based provider of subsea leak detection and condition monitoring sensors based on passive acoustic technology.

The acquisition, which is subject to regulatory approval and other customary closing conditions, further expands GE’s monitoring and sensing solutions and will be part of the company’s Measurement & Control business. This deal is another step towards a stronger GE presence in Norway.

“Through its commitment to innovation, Naxys has developed world-class sensor expertise and technology that fits well with GE’s culture and capabilities,” said Brian Palmer, president and CEO of GE Measurement & Control and vice president of GE Energy. “By combining talent and know-how, we are developing a strategy that will capitalize on both companies’ existing expertise.”

The addition of Naxys will expand GE’s sensing and condition monitoring offerings and extend its reach into the subsea space for energy customers around the world.

Naxys develops and supplies leak detection and condition monitoring sensors based on proprietary, passive acoustic hydrophone technology. The design of the sensing element enables extremely sensitive and accurate measurement of subsea acoustics. Naxys’ products allow operators to monitor the integrity of their subsea installations.
