Rovco has penned an initial three-year charter of the multipurpose support vessel, Glomar Supporter as part of its growth strategy within its site characterisation business unit.

The global provider of subsea robotics and integrated survey solutions has signed the long term charter party agreement with Glomar Offshore for the vessel, marking a significant expansion of the company’s offshore hydrographic, geophysical, and shallow geotechnical survey capabilities.

Responding to high client demand amid a rapidly growing offshore wind market, Rovco, working in collaboration with Glomar and marine design consultants, Medea, will reconfigure the vessel to permanently carry an entire suite of state-of-the-art survey sensors and equipment, aimed at providing the highest quality data capture, reporting and technology enabled solutions for a streamlined and efficient site characterisation offering.

Upon completion of dry docking in Feb 2023, the vessel will be delivered to Rovco complete with a keel mounted gondola, an array of deck equipment, and dedicated high-end survey and reporting office suites.

The gondola, designed and analysed for performance by Medea, will contain a suite of permanently installed survey sensors including dual head multibeam configurations, with inbuild roll and pitch stabilisation for high quality acquisition.
