Rotech Subsea Set for Harbour Clearance Work

Rotech Subsea is set to deploy a new RS1 excavation tool for the recently secured harbour clearance work scope in UK.

The RS1 excavation tool has been specially adapted by the Aberdeen group’s on-site fabrication unit, Rotech Fabrication, to meet demand from Port Authorities for excavating difficult to access areas, such as underneath pontoons or piers, the company said.

We are delighted to mobilize our new RS1 tool on this harbour clearance scope,” said Steve Cochrane Rotech’s director of Subsea. “We have been in dialogue with a number of key Port Authorities recently and our in-house Engineering and Fabrication division have subsequently developed, built and tuned a tool to meets their requirements.

“It’s a great example of the flexibility of the RS design,” added Cochrane. “But also a great demonstration of the group’s ability to work closely with clients to produce bespoke tools to meet their subsea needs.

“A well-earned reputation in this area is seeing us receive a steady stream of enquiries not just from Port Authorities, but from companies across the oil & gas, renewables, decommissioning and energy sectors.”

The RS1 will mobilize for the undisclosed UK Port Authority client in the coming weeks.
