26/11/2014 by Sharon Shahzad


Fast-growing offshore company Red7Marine Offshore has expanded its subsea services to North Sea clients by investing in a fleet of remotely operated vehicles (ROVs).

The eight observation class ROVs add a new strand to the widening portfolio of best-fit solutions offered by the ambitious marine offshore and subsea contractor. The investment – part of a £25 million investment in equipment this year - also secures more skilled jobs at its Great Yarmouth base.

It is the only fleet based in and operating from the East of England providing a complete range of turnkey subsea services.Such is the demand, the ROVs are already engaged on subsea services for clients in offshore drilling, inshore renewables, cable laying and inland water industries.

ROVs are an underwater robots controlled from a surface ship and capable of carrying out a number of tasks underwater.They are used to look at objects or to perform operations like opening valves or carry a host of scientific instruments to take multiple measurements.The purchase is the first step in a wider ROV services plan for the company, including a future purchase of larger ROV systems.

The fleet strengthens Red7Marine Offshore’s subsea position after 10 years of extensive diving experience.The ROV rental business was purchased from Forum Energy Technology, bringing jobs for supporting staff.

Chief executive Martin Myhill Sisley said: “This investment represents an exciting first step for us in an area of the business that we have already been working and one that we intend to grow with the likely addition of larger ROV systems in the near future.“An in-house ROV capability along with Red7s’ diving experience strengthens the company’s already significant subsea expertise. This in turn enables us to provide our customers with best-fit solutions, be it from either our own fleet of vehicles or with a managed subcontractor offering larger work class ROV services.”
