DNV GL launches new subsea section in Aberdeen

DNV GL has created a new subsea team to increase the company’s ability to respond to the rapidly growing subsea sector. Martin Fowlie, Head of Section for the new unit, says: “DNV GL is very much looking to the future by bringing together the best of our technical expertise in this [United Kingdom Continental Shelf (UKCS)] area. We have a great local team and a strong network within the new DNV GL organisation to really support the customer regardless of the size of the development, or the novelty of the technology.â€?

The creation of the new subsea section comes on the back of the announcement earlier this month by DNV GL at Offshore North Seas (ONS) when a new ‘Standard for certification of subsea equipment and components’ was launched. It is thought that major efficiencies will be the resultant benefit of the standard, by means of streamlined quality control and manufacturing processes.

Bert Droy, Business Development Lead for Subsea and Floaters in Aberdeen, adds: “Having a dedicated section for subsea, with clear guidelines from which they can draw, is good news. Meetings are planned with our DNV GL peers globally, and the outcome will reinforce how we drive this forward.â€?
