Sub-Atlantic Nets International Orders Worth More than £2.5M

11 August 2010

Remotely operated vehicle (ROV) manufacturer Sub-Atlantic, part of the Triton Group, has netted orders worth more than £2.5million for six ROV systems from five international customers during an unprecedented week of sales activity.

The orders are for a Comanche work-class system for a Far East diving contractor, a second Comanche built to bespoke design for a European scientific institute, a Super Mohawk intervention vehicle for a Singapore buyer, two Mojave observation-class (OC) ROVs for a civil-engineering project in China, and a Navajo OC vehicle for a Russian government institute.

General manager John Ferguson said: “This record-breaking week of orders contributes to a very strong year of vehicle and component sales activity for Sub-Atlantic. It also reflects the high calibre and dedication of our sales team, both domestically and overseas, with excellent contributions from our agents who have worked hard to win these contracts in a highly competitive marketplace.”

Sub-Atlantic, which employs 55 people at bases in the UK, Houston and Singapore, has emerged as a leader in the design and manufacture of small to medium electric ROV systems and the thrusters and components used in the manufacture of hydraulic work-class ROVs.

Sub-Atlantic is based at Blackburn Business Park, near Aberdeen, alongside parent Triton, which offers subsea technologies and services to the oil and gas and underwater industries.
