LNG Industry,

RINA S.p.A has announced that it has purchased the Edif Group, which includes the ERA engineering consultancy and the NDE testing, inspection and certification business.

RINA said that the acquisition would result in an expansion of the company’s international geographic footprint, particularly in the US and the UK, together with an increased profile in the oil and gas industry. 

The acquisition of Edif forms part of RINA’s long-term strategy to enhance its services through both its certification and consulting engineering businesses. The deal will offer the company access to the US and UK oil and gas industries.

Ugo Salerno, CEO at RINA, said: “This acquisition is strategic and fits very well with RINA due to Edif’s profile in the oil and gas industry. The ERA engineering consultancy and the NDE testing, inspection and certification business have an excellent reputation built on excellence, much in the same way as RINA. Due to the complimentary nature of the business, integration will be straight forward, resulting in a wider geographical footprint and immediate business gains. RINA wishes to expand its business in the oil and gas industry, and with the addition of Edif expertise, I believe that we can offer enhanced value to our customers through an expanded skill base both in our engineering consultancy and our testing, inspection and certification business.”
