Gardline, Neptune merge vessel and ROV services
Gardline Geosurvey and Neptune have teamed up, and integrated their vessel and ROV services.
The deal will see Gardline’s DP2 multi-role survey vessel, the MV Kommandor, enhanced with the permanent installation of Neptune’s Explorer 06 100HP ROV.
According to a statement on Friday, the ROV integration has strengthened the vessel’s full site investigation survey capabilities and allows it to offer enhanced features over standard site survey vessels, particularly with operations which require close approach work and extensive ROV operations.
Kevin Stephen, Neptune’s operations and business development director for Europe, Mediterranean and Africa, said: “As we continue to explore opportunities within Europe and beyond, this new ROV survey and vessel package will be an attractive proposition for clients looking to benefit from an integrated solution and the MV Kommandor and its range of services is very much at the heart of this offering.
Nick Bayfield, Gardline Geosurvey’s marketing director, said: “The multi-role capabilities of the vessel include the ability to undertake single pass site survey operations on the same cruise as ROV, geotechnical and environmental acquisition providing our clients with access to a truly multi-functional vessel and the associated cost efficiencies they are looking for in the current market.”
