ROV specialist HPR ROV is projecting a promising year ahead with the securing of a number of North Sea contracts and a significant investment into new equipment.

In the last year, HPR ROV which supplies vehicle inspection and intervention services to the global offshore and wind energy industry using remotely operated vehicles (ROVs), has shown a great deal of resilience in its sector and has implemented changes to its operations with a shift of its focus into new markets both in the UK and overseas, including decommissioning and following industry conversations into the global renewable energy market.

Known predominantly for its high-performing micro ROV systems, HPR ROV has worked on an array of projects with tier-one operators and service companies in the last year in the North Sea, Central Asia and West Africa. Its cost-effective inspection solutions have also seen the company support a number of late life asset management work scopes within the UK decommissioning sector including gas sampling, pipe cutting and debris recovery.

The company, which is headquartered near Inverurie, Aberdeenshire, has recently invested more than GBP 100,000 to supplement its fleet of systems in order to capitalise on the changing opportunities and plans to further invest in further ROVs in the coming months to support incoming work.

Managing Director for HPR ROV, Iain Petrie, says, “The last 2 years have thrown many hurdles towards the business community globally, however the oil and gas market has managed to spring back and is in a thriving position with focusses leaning towards decommissioning and the renewable energy markets. We continue to focus on creating strong relationships with clients for inspection scopes offshore, but we have been fortunate enough to expand our services into reservoir and infrastructure work for utilities companies.”
