Sweco signed an agreement to acquire Medins Havs och Vattenkonsulter AB, which specialises in surveys of watercourses, lakes and seas. Expertise regarding aquatic environments is vital in the green transition and Sweco sees increasing demand from clients in both the private and public sector. This acquisition will make Sweco the leading aquatic environment consulting firm in Sweden, with close to 100 experts.

In Sweden, Sweco currently has some 60-odd consultants who advise on client projects in aquatic environments. Medins is one of the country’s leading specialists with cutting-edge expertise in surveying aquatic environments.

“Aquatic environment consulting is in growing demand, from private- and public-sector clients, for example in offshore wind power, ports, industry, mines, water and sewage treatment, and transportation infrastructure. We are now welcoming 35 new colleagues, whose expertise will become an important part of Sweco’s full-service offering and we look forward to working together to support clients within sustainable societal development,” says Ann-Louise Lökholm Klasson, President of Sweco Sweden.

Sweco has a strong offering and with Medins’ deep expertise and long experience in aquatic environments, we’ll complement each other. Through a combination of breadth and specialties, we can offer a unique holistic perspective that creates opportunities for clients as well as employees,” says Olof Nilsson, CEO of Medins Havs och Vattenkonsulter.

Medins has an annual turnover of approximately SEK 36 million and has around 35 aquatic environment experts, of whom several are leading in their niche within Sweden. This is the Sweco Group’s tenth acquisition in 2023 and is in line with the acquisition strategy to grow the business by adding key competence that complements the Group’s 21,000 experts.
