Aberdeen-based ROV services provider M2 Subsea has unveiled its recently commissioned purpose-built test tank at the company’s base in Westhill.
The indoor fresh water tank, which can hold 73,600 litres of water, has been created for the primary purpose of testing ROVs and ancillary equipment. The facility should allow the company to be in control from the planning to completion of asset testing before they are deployed for both domestic and international projects.
The tank is commercially available for subsea manufacturers and service providers to rent, along with or without M2 Subsea’s ROV fleet. The facility has already been used by Acteon Group for product testing.
M2 Subsea chief executive officer, Mike Arnold, said: “The commissioning of the test tank offering at our Aberdeen base is a great benefit to M2 Subsea. The facility provides us and the local subsea market with a high-quality area for the wet testing of new equipment and will allow for us to test assets more quickly and effectively.”
