Underwater Contracting (UCO), a leading provider of underwater services to the offshore energy, inspection, construction, and aquaculture markets has been awarded what is believed to be one of the largest Remote Operate Vehicle (ROV) contracts in recent years in the global aquaculture sector.
The new service agreement with salmon farming company Mowi Scotland, will see 15 submersible ROVs working 365 days a year over the term of the contract to provide a range of services in Europe and North America.
Mick Bower, managing director of UCO, which is headquartered in Aberdeen, Scotland, said: “We are delighted to have won this major contract which will help secure the future of the company for years to come. It will also support the development of our services and innovations as part of our strategic growth plan, leading to much more exciting innovation for the Scottish salmon sector.”
Sean Anderson, Production Director at Mowi Scotland, adds: “With almost all our assets underwater, it’s vital to always have our eyes on the prize. The deployment of 15 ROVs supplied by UCO complements our static underwater camera systems and will immediately aid us in our daily monitoring of animal welfare and stock containment.”
Formed in 2017, UCO is part of Ocean Marine Group with sister companies Pirie & Smith and ETPM.
Mowi Scotland employs 1500 dedicated professionals that produce the UK’s top seafood choice – salmon.
