Partners Group, a global private markets firm, acting on behalf of its clients, has agreed to acquire ROSEN Group (ROSEN), a global provider of mission-critical inspection services for energy infrastructure assets, from its founder, Hermann Rosen. Mr. Rosen will remain a significant partner alongside Partners Group in supporting the Company’s next phase of growth.
Headquartered in Switzerland, ROSEN provides recurring, regulatory-driven inspection and integrity management services for energy transmission pipelines. The Company is a global leader in inspection services, operating from 25 locations and covering more than 120 countries. ROSEN’s core service involves sending high-tech, precision sensors through pipelines to detect corrosion or minor cracks and identifying risk areas where maintenance is required and recommended. These activities prevent avoidable leaks, which can have meaningful environmental and financial impacts and endanger lives, helping customers to optimize throughput and extend the useful life of essential infrastructure assets. The technology behind ROSEN’s state-of-the-art inspection tools is proprietary and entirely developed, manufactured, and tested in-house. Data is collected throughout inspection runs and the Company uses proprietary software and data analytics programs to extract insights. ROSEN derives the majority of its revenues from natural gas, which is considered an essential complement to renewables in the energy transition.
