UCO said it had expanded its fleet in response to major new multi-year contract wins across all sectors which will see it provide a range of services in Europe, North America and the Middle East.

In addition, the company announced it had made significant investment in additional equipment and now holds a stock of £250,000 dedicated Saab Seaeye Falcon spares and more than £350,000 worth of auxiliary equipment ranging from manipulators to station holding and everything in between.

“Adding these additional systems to our fleet will enable us to respond to the upsurge in business and the major new contracts we have won in recent months,” said Mick Bower, UCO Managing Director.

“We have also made significant investment in adding to our stock of in spares and auxiliary equipment for the Falcons, so we can respond immediately to any issues or additional requirements that might arise during the delivery of our services for existing and new clients. Providing excellent customer service is integral to the way we run our business and having these items to hand when we need them, avoids unnecessary delays for our clients.”
