Major Drone Service Provider To Oil, Gas Acquired By ICR

Move Facilitates The Next Phase Of ICR’s Inspection Service Offering

Aberdeen, Scotland-based ICR Integrity (ICR) has acquired Sky-Futures Partners Limited (Sky-Futures), a provider of drone-based inspections and drone pilot training for the energy, industrial and government sectors.

The transaction facilitates the next phase of ICR’s inspection service offering, augmenting its existing leading global provision of integrated maintenance and integrity solutions to the oil and gas, power, chemical and nuclear industries. The acquisition also strengthens ICR’s infrastructure to support additional growth and expansion through the company’s existing established networks.

With over eight years of experience in 28 countries, Sky-Futures is leading the development of commercial Beyond Visual Line of Sight (BVLOS) drone operations; the next evolution in remote inspection through the application of long endurance, BVLOS drone technology.

"This is a very exciting time for the ICR business and its continued growth in the inspection space. We see a huge opportunity with Sky-Futures becoming part of the ICR Group as they are a world leader in the use of drones for data capture and its subsequent management," said ICR CEO Bill Bayliss. "This acquisition, combined with a number of existing product lines within the ICR service portfolio, will provide our global client base with industry leading technologies to both extend the life cycle and improve the integrity of an asset.”

"The acquisition of Sky-Futures by ICR is an exciting next step in our journey," said Sky-Futures Co-Founder and COO Chris Blackford. "The combination of ICR’s technical services with drone-based inspection operations provide a highly differentiated offering that will stand out in the market."
