An ROV and hydrographic survey company has been awarded a long-term contract for subsea work on a UK offshore wind project.

Rovco's contract with CWind for the 714MW East Anglia ONE offshore wind farm will see it carry out a campaign of subsea inspection and survey work on all subsea structures, informing the maintenance of the wind turbine and substation foundations, under the management of CWind. The multi-million-pound project will utilise a combined DPII vessel and CTV solution, alongside a Work Class ROV.

Brian Allen, CEO and founder of Rovco, said: “This multi-year framework is further proof that we are leading the way in providing modern services to the offshore energy industry. Being awarded a project of this size and scale by CWind is a testament to our hard work and dedication to technology creation and delivery.”

CWind, part of the Global Marine Group, provides topside, subsea, and engineering services to the offshore renewables and utilities market. The company has been awarded a multi-year contract with Scottish Power Renewables and Macquarie’s Green Investment Group to manage the below water services for the wind farm, including subsea maintenance, surveys and corrective maintenance, as well as pre-engineering studies.

Global Marine Group and Rovco entered an invested partnership in 2019, together bringing a combination of innovation and engineering expertise to the subsea market.

The East Anglia ONE offshore wind farm first delivered power to the UK grid in September 2019. All 102 turbines are now installed and full commissioning is expected later this year.
