Maritime Training and Competence Solutions (MTCS Ltd.) claims the whole subsea industry is getting busier all the time, with companies investing and expanding. One area in which this has been particularly noticeable is in remotely operated vehicles (ROVs). As the demand for ROVs increases, so does the need for qualified ROV Pilot technicians. Fueled by the search for oil in ever deeper waters and utilizing numerous strands of technology, the world of ROVs is breaking new ground to develop ever more sophisticated vehicles, meaning an increased need for pilot technicians. The global demand for ROVs was recently highlighted in a report from analysts, Douglas-Westwood, which revealed that expenditure on work class ROV operations had more than doubled since 2002. The energy analysts predict that by 2012, $1.458B will have been spent in this sector.
