Rovco recently purchased Saab Seaeye Leopard. As one of the offshore energy industry’s leading providers of ROV and hydrographic services, coupled with artificial intelligence-based technology, this investment adds to the company’s growing fleet of ROVs, expanding subsea capability and capacity much further.
The purchase of the Seaeye Leopard is the latest investment in the company’s asset pool, which strategically increases capability to serve a growing number of customers. This high-performance electric “Fast ROV” work-class platform, known to function well in difficult conditions, increases the company’s service offering to support wind farm installation and maintenance projects throughout the lifecycle of subsea related tasks. Rovco’s aim is to serve customers’ needs in areas such as construction support, seabed, cable and pipeline investigations and intervention, and this vehicle backs up the Teams’ capability to deliver on its £15m+ pipeline of upcoming work and will bolster the range of our already growing portfolio of subsea projects.
The Seaeye Leopard is designed to offer customers an exceptionally powerful electric work-class ROV. The Leopard’s technical features keeping, opening up wider operational weather windows, and thereby increasing project efficiency through reduced downtime. The vehicles’ design along with a compact Launch and Recovery spread, allows for fast mobilization and demobilization to and from a wider range of vessels without the need for extensive modifications to the deck to support the setup. The all-electric design combined with these typically smaller host vessels helps reduce project CO2 emissions and lowers the overall cost of projects to Rovco’s customers.
Simon Miller, Rovco’s General Manager said: “We are extremely proud to have purchased this great asset. The Seaeye Leopard provides us with an extremely capable, multi-purpose work-class ROV, which is the perfect platform to support our immediate customer needs and future campaigns. The system will be put to work straight away on offshore wind projects throughout the summer, and will bring great operational benefit and efficiency to our planned campaigns”
