Blyth-headquartered seabed intervention and subsea robotics services company Pharos Offshore has secured a £7.8 million funding package from ThinCats to facilitate the purchase of new assets.

The funding package is set to allow Pharos to source additional work-class remotely operated vehicles (ROVs), trenching systems, cable ploughs and other ancillary equipment.
