Rovco wins major new contract

Alusid’s products have a much lower impact on the environment than traditional tiles and surfaces. They are made using a low energy process, from waste product that would otherwise be sent to landfill or down-cycled in low value applications. 

“Our strategy has always been that customers will not buy a product just because it is greener, but because it is of premium quality as well as being sustainable,”

“Our strategy has always been that customers will not buy a product just because it is greener, but because it is of premium quality as well as being sustainable,” says Bremner. 

It is a strategy that seems to be working. Alusid has a healthy order book with more than 100 projects currently in the pipeline, as well as the Parkside deal.

After the launch at Clerkenwell Design Week in May, the Sequel tile range will be on display at Parkside’s Clerkenwell Design Studio.

Honeys entered into the LIHA quality awards are judged by a panel of experts in a blind tasting and scored from 0-100 points. Eligible honeys must pass extensive testing by an independent accredited laboratory. Tests include pollen spectrum for floral and geographical source of honey, sugar profile to detect increasingly common adulteration and tests for heat treatment and excessive heat exposure.

There are four awards ranging from bronze to platinum. The highest award, platinum, is reserved for honeys that score from 95.5 to 100 out of a maximum possible source of 100.

These latest awards come just weeks after the company was named as the first ever food product in the UK to receive the British Standards Institution’s internationally recognised Kitemark accreditation for food assurance.

Earlier this year, The Scottish Bee Company’s pure heather honey was also revealed as a world-leading superfood in a scientific study. It contains up to 10 times more of the essential micronutrient, manganese, compared to 200 of its global rivals. This unique Scottish honey is also amongst the world’s top manganese containing food products.

Suzie Millar, Co-founder of The Scottish Bee Company, said: “We’re so honoured to be awarded not one, but two awards for our Scottish heather honey at the London International Honey Awards in a line-up of some of the best honeys in the world.

“We work incredibly hard to make sure we are providing our customers with the best pure Scottish honey possible, so it feels great to have our product recognised by industry experts.”

The job will involve inspections and surveys across nominated subsea jacket locations at the wind farm and include export and array cables.

The aim is to assist in informing the current condition and any potential maintenance planning at the site.

Rovco will utilise the DPII vessel Glomar Wave to deploy a WROV solution for asset and cable depth of burial inspections, along with a hydrographic survey vessel from local supplier Moray First Marine, to support its team while performing multi-beam and scour assessment surveys.

The company said that approximately 43 onshore and offshore personnel, made up of full time and contract positions, will work on the delivery of the project for Rovco.

Beatrice site operations manager Martin Sutherland said: "This is Rovco's first year providing subsea inspections and surveys to Beatrice and I am pleased to say that it has been a successful first campaign.

"The cooperation between Rovco and site operations team ensured safe and efficient execution of the inspection and survey campaign."

Rovco managing director Simon Miller said: "We continue to support the growth of the Offshore Wind Farm industry across the UK.

"The welcome addition of Beatrice to our portfolio means we have now worked at over 50% of the operational projects in UK waters.

"This award is a testament to the teams' hard work and dedication supporting this great sector.

"We are excited to continue our own growth by securing this prestigious framework agreement and year one Call Off which will see us applying our significant offshore wind farm experience to our first campaign here in Scotland and also using local partners and talent to see the safe and successful completion of the work for Beatrice Offshore Windfarm."
