The National Subsea Centre (NSC) is the multi-million-pound Centre of Excellence for subsea research and technology development, delivered through partnership between Robert Gordon University (RGU) and Net Zero Technology Centre (NZTC), through the Aberdeen City Region Deal.
The NSC is harnessing NZTC’s extensive industry network alongside the University’s academic expertise, research capability and facilities to establish a world-class research and development centre. The NSC aims to develop smart digital and engineering technologies to enable a faster, more cost-effective and sustainable transition to a net zero energy basin, locally in the North Sea and globally in energy environments.
John McCall, NSC Director noted: ”We’re embarking on a great adventure at the NSC to push the limits of our academic knowledge to deliver meaningful research that will change the world around us. From discovery to application, we’re driven by the desire to make breakthroughs that will open up a universe of possibilities.”
The ambitious and innovative programmes are delivered through interdisciplinary research projects which address complex industry challenges and are periodically reviewed and adapted to ensure continued relevance to emerging technical developments and industrial needs.
Scotland’s Cabinet Secretary, Michael Matheson said: “This centre is going to be key in helping to make sure that the North East of Scotland continues to lead the world in subsea technology. And working in close collaboration and partnership with the energy sector over an extended period of time and a considerable level of academic expertise in energy sector within your institution. And that partnership, I think, is absolutely key to helping to deliver the success of this centre.”
Our interaction with industry, government and the net zero funding ecosphere allows us to identify important challenges then define smart technology roadmaps to address these and deliver high value solutions.
