ABERDEEN, UK — Two Scottish/UK government officials have opened the new National Subsea Centre in Dyce, Aberdeen, focused on subsea research and technology development.
Its three main research programs are Transparent Ocean, Integrated Energy and Marine Operations, all involving interdisciplinary research projects related to subsea engineering, artificial intelligence, data science and integrated energy.
The center will assess emerging technologies that the energy sector will need to cut emissions from operations, and develop a workforce with digital skills.
The National Subsea Centre is collaborating with the NZTC on projects including "SeaSense," developing technology to enable ROVs to function in harsh, visually challenging environments.
They are also cooperating on the NZTC’s Data for Net Zero (D4NZ) project to deliver a "Smart Energy Basin," using various connected data science, visualization and modeling tools.
