Rovco has been awarded a three-year contract to support one of the world’s largest offshore wind farms, Gwynt y Môr, eight miles off the coast of North Wales in the U.K. 

 
The U.K. subsea company said it will provide its underwater ROV 3D visual survey solution, alongside traditional video, blueview sonar and cathodic protection analysis techniques.
 
Gwynt y Môr consists of 160 turbines that generate enough energy for more than 400,000 homes across the country. It extends over an area of about 80km² and includes two offshore substations and 134kms of onshore cable installations.
 
The contract with wind farm operator innogy was won in a competitive tender. It will see the Bristol-based ROV firm provide inspection services to the 576MW windfarm’s offshore assets as part of its ongoing maintenance plan. 
 
Rovco will deploy its Sub-Atlantic Mojave ROV from its fleet, kitted out with 3D inspection equipment as part of the bespoke inspection program. These observation class ROVs are best suited to the issues associated with the strong currents found in the Liverpool Bay area.
