Rovco has formed an invested partnership with Global Marine Group (GMG) to bring inspection, repair and maintenance (IRM) solutions to the global offshore market. GMG, made up of three business units - Global Offshore, CWind and Global Marine - has secured a 13.8% share in the Bristol and Aberdeen based remotely operated vehicle (ROV) and hydrographic services business.
Rovco’s latest development, SubSLAM, which replaces visual video inspection with live 3D reconstruction technology, to obtain an accurate picture of subsea assets and environments, will be deployed from GMG’s fleet of 21 crew transfer vessels. GMG’s eight cable installation and maintenance vessels will also be able to support IRM projects. The partnership will enable both Rovco and GMG to serve a wider range of customers beyond their established industries.
