Neptune Marine Services has received a patent for its NEPSYS dry underwater welding technology from the United States Patent and Trademark Office. The company will now be able to more actively market its NEPSYS Technology to customers in the US shipping, defense and oil and gas sectors.

The patent protects Neptune in the United States against infringements to the NEPSYS Technology.

Neptune's managing director, Christian Lange, said: "This is an important development for the company and gives us greater scope and flexibility to promote NEPSYS to potential customers in the sizeable US markets.

"Oil and gas infrastructure and other marine infrastructure that supports the US Gulf coast oil and gas industry provides significant opportunity for Neptune, an the NEPSYS technology has many applications in this market.

Already we are actively pursuing repair and maintenance projects where NEPSYS is applicable.

"The patent is further endorsement of the unique nature of the NEPSYS technology, and further reinforces its significant value in Neptune's planned end-to-end subsea inspection, repair and maintenance (IRM) service model that the company is rapidly developing,"
