Royal Dutch Shell plc has opened a new major technology hub in Bangalore, India, which can house up to 1,500 workers.

Expanding its R&D activities in Asia, Shell Technology Center Bangalore (STCB) will bring together R&D staff who previously worked at separate locations in the region.

By housing all R&D staff in Bangalore in one center, the technology hub will create new opportunities for multidisciplinary collaboration, and drive relevant and affordable innovations, Shell said in a company statement.

“We consider R&D a fundamental part of Shell’s past and future success. Therefore we continue to invest in people, projects and facilities, such as this high-tech hub,” Harry Brekelmans, Shell’s projects and technology director, said in a statement.

Shell Technology Centre Bangalore is one of the three main technology hubs in the company’s global network of R&D centers, with the other two located in the Netherlands and the USA. More than 4,000 staff work at these hubs and smaller technical centers on a broad range of projects.
