The National Decommissioning Centre (NDC) opened last year as a partnership between the Oil & Gas Technology Centre (OGTC) and the University of Aberdeen. The NDC is a dedicated research facility focusing on reducing costs, extending field and asset life, and transforming the conventional approach to decommissioning.

The North Building houses a high-tech digital visualisation hub and a walk-in 300 degree Marine Simulator capable of simulating and controlling in real-time decommissioning scenarios (in the final stages of commissioning). The South Building accommodates a technical hangar including specialist equipment and two water tanks, where practical simulations are carried out.

More can be found out on the work that the NDC does by taking a browse through their website here.
