ROVOP wins business growth awardCompany News // December 12, 2012
Rapidly-growing subsea specialist ROVOP has been recognised for its achievements in offshore renewables by winning the Business Growth award at the Scottish Green Energy Awards.
In just 18 months since its inception, ROVOP has carved out a niche for itself as an independent company that focusses on specialist, rapid-response ROV solutions for the offshore oil and gas and offshore wind industry.
The company has expanded from two employees and contractors to more than 30 staff and contractors. A total of £3 million has already been invested in ROVs and a further commitment of £15 million will see the company purchase five hydraulic ROVs over the next 18 months and which is expected to create around 60 jobs.
Managing director, Steven Gray, said: “This is tremendous industry recognition of ROVOP’s significant growth and a huge testament to the team’s hard work and commitment to ensuring the company’s success.
“A large part of our success has been due to our ability to provide a reliable, consistent and totally focussed ROV service. As a result, we have experienced an extremely high demand right across the energy industry since we began trading. This has increased as more offshore companies have found out about the services we provide and our reputation has grown.”
