Nautronix Join Key Industry Players as a Member of the NSRI

20 November 2009

Marine Technology Solutions providers Nautronix have joined key industry players by becoming the latest members of the National Subsea Research Institute (NSRI).

Set up to develop and maintain the UK's position as a centre of excellence for subsea technology the NSRI combines the UK subsea industry and the University sector to develop and push forward a co-ordinated research strategy and programme for the subsea sector.

Existing subsea industry members include Acergy, BP, Chevron, Fugro, Lloyd's Registrars, Nexen, Petrofac, Shell, Subsea 7, Talisman, Technip, Total and Wood Group.

Nautronix, who have invested around £14 million over the last 9 years into their own research and development say their alliance with the NSRI is an important partnership for the company and a good opportunity to contribute to the development of the UK subsea sector.

Lindsay MacDonald, Director of Engineering at Nautronix who will represent Nautronix within the NSRI said: “we are developing our business globally and therefore ensuring the UK remains to be seen as the market leaders in subsea technology is of primary importance to us.

“We hope that by being at the forefront of NSRI research programmes we will be able to contribute the skills, knowledge and technology we have at Nautronix and look forward to working with the other industry members and academic partners to ensure the NSRI is the forefront of technology development and innovation in the years ahead.”


Subsea UK is now the Global Underwater Hub (GUH).

The GUH is a new strategically focused, intelligence-led organisation that will transform the UK's £8bn underwater industry into one of the largest and fastest-growing industries in the country.
