About us

FoundOcean, a Venterra Group member company, can trace its roots back to the 1960s when, as part of the Wimpey organisation, a joint industry project introduced the concept of repairing and securing subsea and marine foundations and structures using cementitious materials.

Six decades later, FoundOcean has developed into the world’s largest dedicated offshore construction grouting company.

Through the provision of structural grouting and life extension solutions for offshore assets in offshore wind and oil & gas, the company remains the energy industry’s first choice in the facilitation of new and innovative materials and equipment to market. FoundOcean: providing offshore grouting solutions in support of the global energy transition.

FoundOcean is featured as an Energy Transition success story – we have been working in offshore energy, grouting subsea structures, for over 60 years – and we want other businesses based in Scotland to know how much help Scottish Enterprise can give them.

For us, Scottish Enterprise have been instrumental in our growth into other markets for offshore wind around the world, and these are certainly very exciting times!

UK Export Finance has been critical in bolstering UK businesses' export capabilities, notably aiding FoundOcean, a proud Venterra Group company.

UKEF's support, highlighted by FoundOcean in this Financial Times video, addressed FoundOcean's challenge of obtaining adequate collateral for warranty and performance bonds, a common barrier for export-reliant firms. This assistance enabled FoundOcean to concentrate on business expansion, showcasing UKEF's dedication to empowering UK enterprises for global success and promoting economic growth.

FoundOcean, the world leading offshore construction grouting firm and a crucial supplier to the global offshore wind industry, exemplifies this support.
