Brian Allen, chief executive and founder, said: “In this low oil price environment, clients are looking for lower-cost subsea services while still maintaining a high focus on safety and quality.”
Neil Gordon, Chief Executive of Subsea UK commented: “Rovco has launched at a time when a number of companies are feeling the strain of the sustained low oil price. However its business model is built around exactly what the industry needs to overcome these challenges.”
