Sonardyne Joins NOC Marine Robotics Innovation Centre

Sonardyne International has become the newest associate member of the National Oceanography Centre’s (NOC) Marine Robotics Innovation Centre.

Sonardyne and NOC have worked together on various projects, with the latest one, funded by Innovate UK, currently underway.

Adam Schink, Marine Robotics Innovation Centre manager at the NOC said, “Our relationship with Sonardyne is a proven example of UK industry and the public sector working together to generate mutually beneficial returns. The current Innovate UK funded project to develop an autonomous surface/ sub-surface survey system, is an exciting opportunity to create a low-cost and long-term integrated shore-based method of surveying with a range of commercial and science applications.”

Dr Graham Brown, Divisional Director Oil and Gas at Sonardyne added, “Joining NOC’s Marine Robotics Innovation Centre is a natural move for us considering our strong track record in underwater positioning, communications and custom engineering. Our ability to help find answers to ocean science’s most challenging questions, underpins our relationship with many of the world’s leading marine institutes, but we are particularly happy to be working with the NOC in advancing the UK’s capabilities in future marine robotic systems.”

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.
