ROVOP Partners with Boskalis Subsea Services to boost subsea

ROV services provider ROVOP and Boskalis subsidiary Subsea Services have entered a global partnership to deliver integrated subsea solutions for the energy industry.

The partnership provides five diving support vessels (DSV) and one construction support vessel (CSV) of the Boskalis fleet, with dedicated ROV services.

The partnership will see the placement of 7 ROVOP ROV systems across these DSVs and CSV for a minimum 3-year period on an international basis. ROVOP will also mobilise additional ROV systems on an ad hoc basis as required. 

ROVOP claims that the placement of ROVs across the six Boskalis assets “drives increased safety performance as the ROVs act as an additional visual support for diving operations. Furthermore, it enables the ability to carry out diverless tasks, such as cutting and recovery.”

Stuart Cameron, Boskalis Subsea Services managing director, said “This collaboration not only strengthens our capabilities but aligns perfectly with the addition of the CSV Northern Ocean to our fleet, further solidifying our commitment to the North Sea and evolving needs of our clients.”

Neil Potter, ROVOP chief executive, noted: “Boskalis Subsea Services are known for their strength in vessel and diving based service delivery and we believe our ROV service, delivered by our world class personnel, will be complementary and combine to offer a market leading solution to the global offshore energy industry”.
