A new £16 million centre for the development of subsea engineering has opened in East Kilbride.

Developed by TÜV SÜD National Engineering Laboratory, a provider of research and development, consultancy and testing to the international energy industry, the centre gives Scotland a global capability, building on its strong position in flow metrology for subsea engineering and oil & gas innovation.

Known as the Advanced Multiphase Facility (AMF), the centre is part of TÜV SÜD National Engineering Laboratory’s East Kilbride facilities and was officially opened by Cabinet Secretary for Finance, Derek Mackay.

Dr Brian Millington, managing director of TÜV SÜD National Engineering Laboratory, said: “The AMF’s world-leading research facilities will support the global oil & gas industry with both current and future measurement challenges, from well optimisation to fiscal accounting.

While significant production opportunities exist in extreme environments, higher operating pressures and temperatures can impact the performance of multiphase flow measurement devices.

The new facility will focus on the £50-billion-per-annum global subsea sector.
