ROVOP investing US$6.3 million in new HQ, ROV facilities

October 15, 2014

ROVOP is investing more than US$ 6.3 million (£4million) in a new purpose-built headquarters that will include training facilities, a full ROV underwater test facility and an internal 40-tonne overhead crane.

The facility is located in the Aberdeenshire’s Westhill area, known as subsea industry’s SURF City. It combines the company’s extensive fleet of ROVs and its ROV Academy in one location.

ROVOP’s headquarters will feature high-quality offices including breakout amenities as well as full maintenance facilities including electrical and hydraulic workshops, ROVOP’s $398,000 ROV simulator and an enclosed car park.

The three-story building is 18,500sq ft in total and will accommodate up to 120 members of staff.

“The addition of the test tank will allow us to carry out maintenance or fit sensors and tooling and then wet test our ROVs on site ahead of their deployment offshore, as well as use them for demonstration and training purposes,” says Steven Gray, managing director. “With work contracted already as far ahead as 2020, we look forward to our new headquarters providing us with the scope to grow our team and fleet to continue to meet future demand for high quality ROV services.”

The new headquarters will support the company’s investment in its own ROV Academy with the creation of additional training and office breakout facilities.
