An Aberdeen-based ROV system rental company has secured £3.1 million deal to provide a prominent marine services firm with specialist subsea equipment.

Under the contract, Aleron Subsea – which recently relocated its head office from Singapore to new headquarters on the outskirts of Westhill – will supply two work class ROV-systems and associated equipment.

The ROVs, which have Tether Management Systems (TMS), 150hp hydraulic power and are 3000m depth rated, will be utilised for work on shallow and deepwater applications across the globe.

Established in 2010, Aleron currently has eight work class ROV systems, and has extensive experience working in all aspects of the subsea industry, specifically in drill support, pipeline survey, construction support, decommissioning, trenching support and diver support.

The specialist firm currently employs 20 experienced professionals, and plans are in place to recruit additional staff during 2015.

Mike Bisset, Managing Director, Aleron Subsea, said: “Although the industry is going through a challenging period, Aleron has had a successful start to 2015.”
