The Oil & Gas Innovation Centre (OGIC) and the Innovation Centre for Sensor & Imaging Systems (CENSIS) are hosting the innovation pavilion at tomorrow’s Industry Technology Facilitator showcase in Aberdeen.
The innovation centre pavilion will showcase the expertise and capabilities of Scotland’s academic and SME technology communities which can address the showcase theme of making technology reduce cost and improve efficiency.
Ian Phillips, Chief Executive, OGIC, explained: “We are working together to promote the complementary activities, skills and strengths of the companies and research groups in our respective areas of activity to decision makers within the oil and gas industry.
“This collaboration – bringing innovative SMEs and academics together with industry – aims to highlight the potential that exists for partnerships between these communities to create industry-led solutions to some of the major issues currently facing the sector, with a particular emphasis on asset life extension.”.
Pavilion participants include will be ADUS DeepOcean; Cyberhawk; Hydrason; Photosynergy PMAC; Sea Energy and Heriot-Watt University.
Ian Reid, Chief Executive, CENSIS, said: “Sensors and imaging systems are fundamental to many of the technologies which will help energy firms effectively monitor the condition of their assets, maximise exploration and production, as well as realise efficiencies through automation and robotics.
“Working in partnership with OGIC, we want to help oil and gas firms realise the great potential of our indigenous technology providers and universities, and help them harness these for their own businesses.”
