Subsea Centre of Excellence to Set Up in Scotland

A new GBP 16 million Centre of Excellence (CoE) for subsea development is to be established in East Kilbride, Scotland.

Led by TÜV SÜD Limited (NEL), this investment will provide Scotland with a unique global capability.

TÜV SÜD AG has agreed to invest £11.1 million in its NEL site in East Kilbride to develop the CoE for subsea development, thanks to a £4.9 million research and development grant from Scottish Enterprise.

The announcement comes during a visit by economy secretary Keith Brown to the Scottish Enterprise Technology Park in East Kilbride where the new facility will be built over the next two years.

Keith Brown said: “Today’s announcement is great news for Scotland and its oil and gas sector. This will help to create at least 17 jobs and protect 82 more in the Scottish Enterprise Technology Park in East Kilbride.

Brian Millington, NEL’s managing director, said: “This is fantastic news for NEL and the investment from both Scottish Enterprise and our parent company, TÜV SÜD, demonstrates their confidence in NEL’s future and that of the oil & gas sector.”

The CoE will enable NEL to provide fluid flow technical services to the global oil & gas production market over the next 25 years.
