UK: National Hyperbaric Centre Appoints Three New Experts

A specialist North-east oil and gas industry support and training facility has expanded its team following continued growth in business.

The Aberdeen-based National Hyperbaric Centre (NHC) has made three key appointments to its training and consultancy departments increasing the in-house team to 24 experts.

The NHC, which is a privately owned company, has been operating in the North-east for more than 20 years and delivers a range of services including training courses, testing and trial facilities, research and development, auditing, diving medical support, equipment certification, senior consultancy and lifeboat reception.

James Ridgeway has been appointed as training manager for the centre and brings over 20 years experience in the diving industry. Mr Ridgeway will oversee all outsourced training on locations across the globe, as well as training undertaken at the Aberdeen centre.

Ashleigh Gillan also joins the team as training coordinator looking after logistics for the department.

The NHC has also increased its consultancy department with the appointment of consultancy coordinator, Angela Stephen. Miss Stephen will be responsible for the allocation of client representatives and auditors for customer contracts.

Managing Director of the NHC, David Smith, said: “We have secured a number of successful contracts in recent months and both the expansion of the training department and the new consultancy role allows us to continue delivering an outstanding service and developing new products and services to support the industry.”

The NHC offers a range of oil and gas industry support and specialised training services to clients in the UK and across the globe. It is currently the only hyperbaric centre of its kind in the UK and boasts a team of experts with a wealth of knowledge in the oil and gas industry.

UTC 2017

The subsea industry has, as all other parts of the oil & gas industry, been seriously rattled by the most severe downturn in the hydrocarbon energy era. However, the realization of what hit us and actions to be taken to sustain a healthy and profitable future is still on-going – unfortunately with thousands of colleagues paying the price by losing their job as one of the most severe consequences. At this time, there are signs that we have reached bottom in terms of most industry indicators, but few experts expect a sharp recovery. Many seem to believe that a slow recovery is what the industry needs in order to avoid an unsustainable capacity build-up, as seen in the period after the financial crisis. Considering the uncertainty of what the future will bring, this year’s UTC Program Committee have decided to challenge all of us to present ideas, experiences, technological innovations, business models and execution models for how to shape our subsea future and explain how and why subsea is the future.
UTC welcomes abstracts based on the topics listed below. If selected, please consider writing a paper in addition to the UTC presentation. From 2017, UTC papers will be published in an international database.
