ROVOP Enjoys Growth in Houston

ROVOP is set to increase its Houston workforce as a result of further business growth including recent contract wins in the Gulf of Mexico region, the company informed on Monday.

The growth follows the successful completion of a pipeline installation campaign in Mexico with Drebbel de Mexico, which has led to follow-on work.

The initial project with Drebbel involved the use of an ROV for concrete mattress installation for the first time in Mexican waters.

As a result, ROVOP and Drebbel will work together again on another new scheme with unnamed service operator to provide ROV services for pre-lay survey, riser inspection and crossing fabrication with concrete mattresses.

In support of these project wins, ROVOP, which currently employs around 135 people globally, continues to actively recruit for its full service Western Hemisphere base in Houston and anticipates increasing its workforce by up to 10% this year.

President of ROVOP’s Houston operations, Wayne Betts, said: “We are particularly pleased with our performance in the initial contract with Drebbel because with safety being of paramount importance, precisely positioning the mattresses in zero visibility meant that we eliminated the risk to divers by deploying one of our high-performance ROVs and expert operators. We look forward to working together on future projects.

“ROVOP is bucking the trend in an industry by adjusting to the lower oil price and increasing focus on efficiencies to meet our customer’s needs. In Houston, we have seen a steady growth curve since inception and we expect that to continue for the rest of the year.”
