Embedded within the University of Aberdeen's Oceanlab is a well-established and highly active Business Unit.    Supported by a test technician and the infrastructure of Oceanlab, the Unit has made available to industry all aspects of the facilities from providing a venue for company events to delivering highly specified development and product qualification testing.

The Business Unit has seen the subsea industry develop from typical maximum depth rated engineering of 1000m to today's requirements. Oceanlab have responded to client specific test design requirements to address all aspects of environmental and shock stress exposures.

In addition and via the Business Unit biological (biodiversity) monitoring, data collection and analysis capabilities are supplied into industry at survey level and addressing companies’ long term aspirations of biodiversity projects.

We have moved with industry and continue to invest, providing a service which matches the evolving technologies and which is well recognised and well positioned in the UK and international arenas.
