The National Subsea Research Institute (NSRI) has achieved its initial target to recruit 20 companies to join in developing a vision for the long-term future of the subsea industry.  The organisation, jointly established just over a year ago by Subsea UK, the University of Aberdeen, the University of Dundee, Newcastle University and Robert Gordon University, is developing a national research program to benefit the UK subsea industry over the next 15-20 years.

As NSRI begins the implementation of its first flagship research programs, Aker Solutions, CNR International and Atkins have agreed to become the latest members of the group, joining other companies to provide industry insight and prioritisation for the research projects undertaken within the universities.

The three new members will join NSRI’s industry steering group, which is responsible for ensuring that the institute focuses on developing those technologies required to maintain the UK subsea sector’s leading position in global markets over the next 20 years.

In reaching its initial membership target, NSRI business manager, Mark Critchley, said “This is a very important milestone for the long-term success of NSRI, and is recognition from the industry that what we are seeking to achieve is moving firmly forward in the right direction. 

“We have a clear focus at present towards resolving the technical challenges facing the subsea oil and gas sector. However, we are committed to looking at the industry in its entirety and the potential solutions being discussed are equally applicable to other subsea sectors, including the marine renewables, defence and telecommunications sectors, as well as the ocean science fraternity.
