An Aberdeenshire technology start-up company, Viewport3, has secured a five-figure investment from Tom Bryce, co-founder of Scopus Engineering, which was sold to the AMEC group in 2014.

Following the investment Tom Bryce now owns a 15% stake in Ellon-based Viewport3.

Viewport3 is a specialist provider of subsea scanning and photogrammetry services to the underwater sector.

Richard Drennan, director and co-founder of Viewport3 said: “We are currently at the vanguard of subsea scanning, but we know that continuous innovation is key to retaining that position.

“We focus on the difficult projects and sub-millimetric outputs, and Tom’s investment will allow us to further develop our already cutting-edge capabilities, and introduce more sophisticated hardware technology that will allow us to scale-up to meet demand.”

Tom Bryce added: “During my years at Scopus, we always felt that the missing link in our business was our ability to accurately measure subsea. When I first heard about the technology developed by Richard and Chris at Viewport3, and the pioneering services they offer, I was intrigued. The more I learned, the more I wished that this had been around when we set up Scopus Engineering. It is exactly what the industry has been crying out for.

“So, for me it was a very natural progression to come on board with Viewport3. With my experience and understanding of the sector, I am very much looking forward to working with Richard and Chris and providing guidance and support to help them grow the business.”
