Aberdeen SUT+ Updates

The Aberdeen Branch SUT+ group has kicked-off the year with three fantastic events.

On 22 January the SUT+ Pub Quiz was held at local bar, Korova, with 11 teams taking part. The evening provided a great opportunity to network and kick-off the New Year. “Mary Berry’s Master Bakers” Subsea 7 were the winning team and the “Scrambled Egg Heads” (ADIL) were awarded the wooden spoon! The group hopes to make this an annual event.

On 3 February, the group worked with Hydro Group plc. to arrange a tour at their site in Bridge of Don. There was a presentation on Hydro Group’s products and service areas, which include engineering, product design, manufacturing, project management and product testing, and this was followed by a tour of the workshop and manufacturing facilities.

On 24 February, the group was delighted to have the opportunity to visit the National Hyperbaric Centre. Attendees were given a presentation on commercial diving, hyperbaric medicine and hyperbaric testing of subsea equipment. This was followed by a tour of the NHC facility where the group were given the chance to see the hyperbaric test facility and put the presentations into context.
