RGU Graduates Set up Subsea Technology Business

Aberdeen-based Robert Gordon University announced Monday that two of its graduates have set up a company that specializes in developing innovative underwater products for the energy industry.

Electrical and electronic engineering graduate Ben Grant and Alastair McLennan-Murray, an artificial intelligence with robotics graduate, have set up Impact Subsea with the aim of creating a new generation of subsea products. Their first offering – the ISA500 – provides multiple subsea sensors in one unit.

"This particular solution has never been available before and allows users to obtain the capability of multiple devices in one," Grant said in a statement.

"We are looking to offer cost savings. For companies conducting work underwater, we provide products with a greater level of capability than those available today."

Grant added that when he and McLennan-Murray were thinking about starting up the company, they noticed that in the oil and gas sector a large number of the once small and highly innovative companies had grown in size, been bought up, and had significantly reduced their levels of innovation.

"This had led to a number of areas in the market which could highly benefit from a new generation of subsea products. It also made sense for us to choose an area in which we both had good knowledge," he said.
