    ROVOP invests £4 million in new headquarters and ROV facilities

    Company News // October 16, 2014

    Subsea specialist ROVOP is investing more than £4 million in a new purpose-built headquarters including training facilities, a full ROV underwater test facility and an internal 40-tonne overhead crane.
     
    The next generation facility at Aberdeenshire’s Westhill area will also bring the company’s extensive fleet of ROVs and its ROV Academy under one roof.
     
    In addition, the headquarters will feature high-quality offices including break-out amenities as well as full maintenance facilities including electrical and hydraulic workshops, ROVOP’s £250,000 ROV simulator and an enclosed car park with more than 50 spaces.
     
    The three-storey headquarters will have an area of 1,700m2, will be able to accommodate up to 120 members of staff.
     
    ROVOP, which is currently based at neighbouring Arnhall Business Park in Westhill, has experienced exceptional growth since recognising a gap in the market in 2011 for an independent company and is 100 per cent focused on providing ROV services to the oil and gas and offshore wind industries.
