Glenrothes-based Utility ROV Services has won a major contract with the Moray East Windfarm, which is expected to lead to an increase in staff as well as revenue.
Utility ROV Services is the latest Scottish company to be contracted for the windfarm project, which is located approximately 15 miles offshore. It has been tasked with removing and repositioning obstacles from the seabed using its UTROV system, which will be supported by dedicated offshore and onshore teams.
It is expected that this contract, as well as other new project awards, will lead to an additional six staff being employed by Utility ROV Services. This will also support its commitment to the overall growth of the business.
Patrick Crawford, Managing Director of Utility ROV Services, explained: “This contract is a result of the hard work and efforts by the whole team. The award reflects our commitment to safety and an excellent track record in delivering Subsea projects, as well as illustrating confidence of the local Scottish supply chain, to deliver first class services to the Offshore Wind Industry.”
Project Director for Moray East, Oscar Diaz, said: “Utility ROV Services was successfully selected through our competitive tender process, and we are pleased to
have them onboard as a key supplier in this phase of the project development. Moray East is committed to providing opportunities to local companies with a robust safety record and technical excellence in their field, and Utility ROV Services delivered on both these points, providing confidence in its abilities to execute the scope of work effectively.”
