ROVOP, an independent provider of underwater remotely operated vehicles (ROVs), has purchased the entire fleet of 28 ROV systems from M2 Subsea.

The fleet expansion will enable ROVOP to better support customer operations in the future by strengthening deployment capabilities across the world, with a particular focus on Latin America, Africa, Middle East and Asia.

“The addition of these ROV systems to the fleet will enable ROVOP to better support customers with the appropriate ROVs for their requirements based on capability and greater cost efficiency,” said Steven Gray, CEO, ROVOP.

“Our service culture will remain at the heart of what we do, as we will continue to provide highly-experienced ROV operators trained in the ROVOP Academy - our own specialised in-house training facilities. Our strategy remains to be the global ROV service provider of choice.”

Growth strategy

The acquisition of this fleet is consistent with ROVOP’s long held growth strategy of providing a focused ROV service to its customers in all markets and geographies. The fleet is expected to be deployed in the vessel and rig markets.

Following a technical review, 19 of these systems meet the ROVOP standard and will be added to its fleet, with the remaining ROVs either being decommissioned or sold. This will increase the number of ROVs that ROVOP operates to 51 - 34 hydraulic systems and 17 electric systems.

ROVOP is an independent provider of subsea ROV services to the oil and gas, offshore wind, telecoms and power transmission industries.
