Forum appoints ROV distributor in Netherlands and Belgium
Subsea technology provider Forum Energy Technologies has appointed a new single distributor for its extensive fleet of subsea vehicles across The Netherlands and Belgium.
Forum said on Monday that Seascape Subsea Technology BV would represent it for the sale of the company’s range of remote operated vehicles (ROV’s) in the two countries, including its recently launched electric ROV – the XLe Spirit.
Designed and built in-house at Forum’s Kirkbymoorside facility in Yorkshire, the XLe Spirit is the first offering from the company’s new generation of electric observation class ROV’s.
Malcolm Johnston, Forum’s sales manager for subsea vehicles, said: “It’s important that we work with the best and most well-respected partners in-country. Seascape Subsea Technology BV provides us with another strong channel complementary to our existing framework to deliver Forum’s world-class range of reliable and well-built ROVs.
“This agreement ensures that our clients in The Netherlands and Belgium receive the same streamlined and consistent support they are accustomed to around the globe. We look forward to engaging with current and new companies through Seascape Subsea Technology BV to grow our foothold in Europe in line with our company objectives.”
Seascape Director, Martijn Juijn, added: “We are pleased to be associated with Forum Energy Technologies. They are a highly respected player in the subsea industry. To be able to represent one of the most extensive ranges of subsea vehicles in the world, will allow Seascape to explore new market opportunities in this territory.”
