Rovco Wins Gwynt y Môr Gig

UK subsea company Rovco has been awarded a three-year contract to support one of the world’s largest offshore windfarms, Gwynt y Môr, located eight miles off the coast of North Wales in the UK.

Rovco will be providing its underwater ROV 3D visual survey solution, alongside traditional video, blueview sonar and cathodic protection analysis techniques.

Gwynt y Môr consists of 160 turbines that generate enough energy for more than 400,000 homes across the country. It extends over an area of about 80km² and includes two offshore substations and 134 kilometers of onshore cable installations.

The contract with windfarm operator Innogy was won in a competitive tender. It will see the Bristol-based ROV firm provide inspection services to the 576MW windfarm’s offshore assets as part of its ongoing maintenance plan.

Rovco will deploy its Sub-Atlantic Mojave ROV from its fleet, kitted out with 3D inspection equipment as part of the bespoke inspection programme.

This announcement is the latest in a series of contract wins for Rovco since the business launched in September last year. To date, it has worked with clients in the renewable and oil and gas industries, across the North Sea, Middle East and Asia Pacific regions.

Rovco chief executive and founder, Brian Allen, said: “Being awarded this three-year contract to support the Gwynt y Môr offshore windfarm demonstrates our growing reputation for providing clients with the most reliable and state of the art underwater inspection solutions based from smaller, more cost-effective, vessels and ROV platforms

“This is a significant addition to our growing order book, showcasing Rovco’s increasing portfolio and footprint across the spectrum of energy industries. We are very proud of our talented team and the inspection services we have on offer. We look forward to delivering a safe and successful campaign and strengthening our bonds with Innogy and RWE.”
