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.
The Oil and Gas Technology Centre have partnered with the University of Aberdeen to create a new multi-million-pound Decommissioning Centre of Excellence to tackle current and future challenges with world-class research and development in partnership with industry. Come with us into the virtual world to discover more about what they do.Watch a short film!
