ROVOP has secured a series of contracts worth a total of £7million for work on major offshore windfarms across Europe.
The company provides remotely operated vehicles (ROVs) to the energy industry and is supplying its equipment and expertise to developments in the UK, Germany, Denmark and Belgium.
ROVOP’s unmanned submarines are used to support turbine tower installation and cable laying, providing powerful subsea tooling and sensors. The work is at windfarms in Belgium, Denmark, Germany and the UK.
A total of 28 staff will be involved in the projects over an 18 month period.
Steven Gray, managing director at ROVOP, said: “Our recent contract wins highlight the strong and growing reputation of our team, who excel in the most challenging environments. ROVOP has the highest standard of equipment; our vehicles are capable of dealing with strong currents and are equipped with the latest technology to cope with extremely low visibility conditions.
“The increase in the number of offshore windfarms throughout Europe has provided us with new markets for growth to supplement the strong pipeline of opportunities in oil & gas.”
ROVOP’s rapid growth has already seen the company win Promising New Business at the 2012 Grampian Awards for Business Enterprise as well as being named a finalist for Best New Enterprise at Subsea UK’s 2012 business awards.
