Scotland’s history in subsea engineering

Few can claim a history of subsea, oil and gas innovation as broad, well-developed and as intrinsic to the energy revolution as Scotland. Consider Christmas Tree Well Heads, Remote Operated Vehicles (ROVs) and the increase in efficiency and safety. Scotland’s industry-transforming subsea products and services are taking energy production to the next level — and beyond.

Scotland has built its world-class reputation on compliance, integrity and quality. Not only does Scotland have the infrastructure and underwater capabilities to lead the energy industry toward renewable alternatives, companies are dedicated to customer success too.

Every day, Scottish companies help customers navigate climate-related risks. They can unlock the many energy transition opportunities that will radically transform how we power our homes, industries and transport networks.

With over 700 supply chain businesses, including those in Tier 1 and Tier 2 categories – the most essential vendors in any energy supply chain – Scotland is brimming with top-notch resources. It offers smarter, cleaner, technically ready resources to support a diverse range of subsea projects.

Scotland's success as a global leader in subsea and low carbon energy is rooted in our legacy of innovation, safety and trust as well as the values that define who we are. Every day, Scotland is winning new work. Major international partners from Abu Dhabi, Brazil, USA, Africa and the Mediterranean, engage Scottish firms because they share the same values for safety, excellence and efficiency.

Expertise and partnership

Scotland’s subsea industry has built a world-leading reputation for underwater expertise, an outstanding work ethic and a customer-first attitude. Access to the Scottish Government, their associated agencies, and academic institutions and trade bodies support the growth of the markets that energy businesses thrive in.

This means having a voice on key policy issues affecting the industry. When you partner with Scotland, you benefit from a supply chain of over 2000 energy and engineering businesses that are stable, well-funded and responsive.

Innovation and enablers

Over 50% of Scotland’s subsea output is exported around the world. Here’s why — energy is in our DNA. Scotland’s subsea businesses have a passion to innovate. And it is fuelled by industry-leading practices, the latest digital and automated processes and a determination to meet the UK’s government’s ambitious goal to reduce carbon emissions by 68% by 2030.

Value for money

More than ever, Scottish businesses are focused on delivering better, safer and more cost-efficient, higher quality outcomes for global customers. They understand that value for money is essential.
