    Second Apache ROV for Marinspect

    Vessel & ROV News // July 14, 2000
    Aberdeen-based ROV operations company Marinspect has taken delivery of its second Apache ROV from Sub-Atlantic Ltd.

    John Sorrie, Technical Director of Marinspect reported that "there has been a lot of interest in smaller ROVs capable of performing observation & survey tasks. We already have an Apache from Sub-Atlantic, which has been operating in the North Sea since August 1999".

    "The excellent feedback regarding the reliability of the vehicle combined with rising demand convinced us to add another to our hire pool. The Apache has more than proved itself to be a powerful and capable vehicle and has recently completed pipeline profiling work with excellent results."

    The purchase of the second Apache has turned out to be a good move for the company with the vehicle going onto an immediate long term contract in the North Sea working on a variety of inspection and NDT tasks.

    The addition of the Apache to the Marinspect fleet means the company now operates three Sub-Atlantic vehicles. Marinspect also operate a Sub-Atlantic Cherokee, which is currently performing high profile civil engineering work in mainland Europe.
