Fugro Looks to Acquire Rovtech

Fugro N.V. has entered into exclusive discussions with Rovtech Ltd. on the acquisition of the Company.

Rovtech Ltd., with its headquarters in Aberdeen, UK, is a provider of ROV (Remotely Operated Vehicle) services to the oil and gas industry, specialized in the IRM (inspection, repair and maintenance) and rig support sector.
