Automating offshore wind services

Born for renewables, we are helping the world become a cleaner, greener, and safer place. Our core focus is to automate offshore wind services by creating and deploying novel tech solutions. Through the automation of hydrographic survey and ROV operations, we provide customers with better data quality and reporting, shorter projects, and a more competitive price point. We strive to ensure ‘the way it was always done’ is the way it’s no longer done; there is always a better way.

We concentrate on the entire life cycle of renewable assets, delivering vital insights that aid the engineering, design, construction, maintenance and performance of offshore wind farms. At the same time, we’re assisting the world’s drive to clean up and decommissioning older oil and gas infrastructure.

Data Platform 3d

Exceptional insights in the harshest conditions

Technology is always advancing, and it can be hard to stay at the cutting edge. At Rovco, we are the cutting edge; combining our own in-house capabilities with industry-leading sensors, we create datasets that give you a better understanding than ever before.

We strive to be your trusted, single point of contact for subsea data collection, effortlessly managing multiple project stakeholders to provide you with a single source of truth for your projects. Collecting data is one thing, but we have the tools to provide deliverables and reports in an intuitive platform that can be used by anyone.

We’re committed to supporting our customers with best-in-class service delivery, and we aim to build long-term partnerships that create value. By leveraging our global experience across the offshore wind industry, we deliver exceptional insights in some of the oceans’ most challenging conditions.
