Aleron Ltd broadens horizons with North Africa contracts announcement

Aberdeenshire-based ROV solutions provider, Aleron Ltd has boosted its international credentials, with the announcement of two contract wins in the North Africa region for its group companies, Aleron Subsea Ltd and ROVQUIP Ltd.

Supplying turnkey ROV solutions via Aleron Subsea (specialising in service, repair and upgrade of Work Class ROV systems) and ROVQUIP (producing specialist subsea tools), the group has recently completed the first of two projects for client, Oceana Subsea.

Utilising an Aleron Subsea Triton XL, supplied together with ROVQUIP's new decommissioning multi-mode Cutting Tool, the Aleron Subsea ROV system is continuing to operate with Oceana on a subsea intervention project and will remain available for additional work in the Mediterranean.

Aleron Ltd managing director, Mike Bisset, commented, “Aleron Ltd's business model is a perfect fit for Oceana Subsea, who are making great progress as an ROV operator. We have rented them highly capable assets, allowing them to add to their capability without deploying the level of resource required to acquire and maintain a wider range of ROV systems and tooling.

“This is further complemented by ROVQUIP's design and production skills, based at the same facility close to Aberdeen. ROVQUIP designed and built a bespoke diamond wire cutter, specific to the project scope, within an extremely tight deadline. The rapid deployment of this tool enabled the project to proceed on time and complete the cut-off and recovery of a 30” concrete filled subsea conductor.”

The ROVQUIP 30” TCT saw was re-designed to allow the option of a Diamond Wire to be installed, thus ensuring the successful cut of a composite of steel and concrete. Built and tested in just three weeks, the tool demonstrates the depth of engineering capability within ROVQUIP.

With ten overhauled Work Class ROV Systems currently available for sale or rental, Aleron Limited is successfully gaining global traction, with recent contract wins in South East Asia, Norway, France and North Africa.

Gad Habiby, managing director of Oceana Subsea commented: “The rapid turn-around of the saw development and deployment enabled us to meet our project deadlines for mobilisation of the system. Oceana Subsea has found the availability of both ROV systems and Engineering Skills from the Aleron Ltd group to be a major advantage in the integration and test of the spread prior to mobilisation.”
