Rotech Subsea Expanding to the Middle East

Rotech Subsea, Ltd. has secured two contracts in the Persian Gulf, Saudi Arabia worth more than $1million.

The first offshore Saudi contract was to mobilize Rotech’s TRS1-LD tool for an Aberdeen-based subsea excavation contractor for use in cable post-trenching. The second contract was for Rotech’s TRS2 tool and TRS1-LD that will be used for a 42-inch pipeline post-trenching and remedial project in Saudi Arabia.

The increase in regional demand for Rotech products convinced the company to establish a permanent base in the Middle East to house TRS1, TRS1-LD and TRS2 tools.

“Demand for our range of cutting edge Controlled Flow Excavation (CFE) tools in the Middle East was strong last financial year and shows no sign of abating,” said Rotech Director of Subsea Stephen Cochrane. “We’ve been inundated with enquiries for our tools, including our TRS1-LD system for shallow water projects – which is the most powerful tool on the market – and anticipate busy times ahead in the region. To meet the demand we have accelerated our plans to set up a permanent base there.”
