ROVOP has good start to 2014 - takes delivery of four work-class ROVsCompany News // February 4, 2014
Subsea specialist ROVOP has expanded its fleet of remotely operated vehicles (ROVs) by taking delivery of four new hydraulic work-class systems with a further four new ROVs expected later in 2014.
The company has invested US$20 million (over £12 million) in four hydraulic Schilling HD work-class ROVs, which were delivered in January, and is actively working to grow its offshore team by 50 to 110 to expand its provision of†ROV services to the oil and gas industry.
ROVOP has also invested in its own ROV simulator for its in-house academy in order to further develop the training and competence of its offshore staff.
Addressing the talent shortage in the subsea industry, the academy seeks to build skill and competence in offshore personnel whatever their current career level.
The £250,000 simulator enables ROV pilots to hone their skills onshore, in physics-accurate conditions.
In addition to this, ROVOP has been awarded ISO 9001 accreditation of its integrated management system by DNV.
