The company is active in subsea engineering and services, mainly in energy sector. It operates more than 40 ships in its fleet, featuring impressive equipment onboard and consisting of vessels ranging from high-performing global pipe-lay and heavy construction enablers to versatile support vessels for flex-lay, light construction and diving and remote intervention activities. The company also continues to invest in one of the world’s largest and most advanced fleets of Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROVs), ranging from compact observation-class units to purpose-built drill support vehicles and heavy-duty construction-class systems.
