James Fisher Defence wins ROV salvage contract

James Fisher Defence (JFD) has been awarded a four-year contract to provide Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV) support services to the Ministry of Defence’s Salvage and Marine Operations (S&MO) team.


The contract affords S&MO 24-hour, on-demand access to JFD’s Engineering Support Cell for specialist support with ROV maintenance, mobilisation, operations, provision of spares and equipment hire services.

Between them, the network ensures JFD has the capability to provide S&MO with rapid responses and comprehensive solutions.
