REMOTELY-operated vehicle specialist Rovco has been awarded a multi-million-pound contract by Gem Wind.

The project is a joint venture between Total and Simply Blue Energy, a pioneering Celtic Sea blue economy project developer.

Rovco, who have a office in Westhill, will begin survey work on Erebus, a planned 96MW offshore floating wind farm 45km off the coast of Pembrokeshire this month.

The survey will consist of a detailed geophysical and environmental site investigation to assess the seabed and sub-surface conditions at both the wind farm and along the potential cable routes to shore.

Brian Allen, Rovco chief executive officer, said: “We have been supporting the offshore energy sector across the entire lifecycle, utilising our in-house technology, and to be awarded this project, is a testament to our team’s hard work and dedication.”

Hugh Kelly, project managing director, said “We are delighted to have awarded this contract to a very capable UK company local to our project in the Celtic Sea.

“We want to ensure the local supply chain is involved as much as possible. It is also positive to see low carbon value creation is continuing during the difficulties of COVID-19.”
