Motive Offshore Group was crowned subsea company of the year while Jim Milne was recognised for his outstanding contribution to the sector at Subsea UK’s annual awards last night (Wednesday 6th February).
The awards celebrate the achievements of companies and individuals in the UK subsea industry during Subsea Expo – Europe’s largest subsea focused exhibition and conference.
The gala dinner, sponsored by Baker Hughes GE and Helix Canyon, took place at the AECC in Aberdeen with over 600 people from the subsea sector in attendance. Neil Gordon, chief executive of Subsea UK hosted the ceremony with former Dyson CEO, Martin McCourt as guest speaker.

Founded in 2010 and with over 100 employees, the company specialises in high quality leasing and development of subsea technologies. Despite a period of economic challenges, Motive has experienced significant growth over the past four years and continues to diversify its service offerings and expand into new markets.
