Subsea robotic company, Aleron Subsea, has relocated its head office from Singapore to Aberdeen in response to growing demand from N. Sea gas, oil and renewables operators.

Aleron – which specialises in ROV upgrades and leasing remotely-operated vehicles, has now moved to Westhill – known locally as the ‘Global Subsea Centre of Excellence’.

Mike Bisset, Managing Director, said: “Aleron Subsea has had an extremely strong time throughout 2014, securing a number of new contracts globally, including a large contract with a client in Indonesia which will continue well into 2015.

“It will continue to be an exciting year for us. We currently employ 20 staff with plans in place to grow our workforce and asset base to cope with demand from clients.

“It was essential for us to relocate our headquarters from Singapore to Scotland to ensure that we can cope with demand and be closer to our clients, particularly in Europe and West Africa, whilst still offering a high class service at all times.”

The company, which specialises in ROV upgrades and renting work class remote operated vehicles to clients, was established in 2010 and seeks to challenge conventional thinking, offering clients within the offshore and marine industry responsive, efficient and cost-effective ROV solutions.

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