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."
