Rotech Subsea Back in Business
- Business & Finance
The Rotech Group has announced the launch of their new subsea business. Having previously built up and operated the globally successful Rotech Subsea mass flow excavation business from 1999, Rotech Subsea‘s equipment was subsequently sold to Reef Subsea UK in 2011.
Rotech Subsea are now re-entering the subsea market with the innovative “RS” range of subsea excavation equipment, offering a range of new capabilities from Controlled Flow Excavation and Dredging with the RS1 through to Cable Burial & Backfilling with the RS9. The Rotech systems are purpose built for multiple applications, meeting new challenges in subsea whilst offering clients more cost effective solutions.
Rotech Group’s engineering & fabrication companies will again be responsible for the design and manufacturing of the new Subsea assets. Their focus will be the subsea commissioning, inspection, repair, maintenance and decommissioning markets.
The Group is an Aberdeen based company, expert in fluid dynamics, turbo-machinery, subsea engineering and fabrication, particularly focused on downhole and subsea tools for the Oil & Gas and Renewable Energy sectors.
Director of Engineering Dr Don Stewart said, “The RS tools build on our knowledge and experience of subsea excavation, and will take us into markets and opportunities not available to traditional Mass Flow tools, with the new RS tools delivering higher jet speeds and combining jetting, suction and reburial capabilities.”
Rotech has announced the appointment of Stephen Cochrane as Director of Subsea. Stephen has over 15 years of combined topside and subsea experience in the offshore oil and gas, renewable energy and power industries where he has held senior positions in design, project management, business development and director roles. Stephen was instrumental in the building of the pre-2011 excavation business.
