Renowned for its smarter operations of the assets required for late field life, decommissioning, rig-less well intervention, plug and abandonment and offshore wind projects, the incubator reflects the company’s strategy of continued research and development into improving offshore marine operations.

Due to create 20 jobs, the incubator will bring operational and academic minds together, within Attollo, to accelerate the digital transformation of its offshore operations using latest technology including automation, data analytics and artificial intelligence.

Managing Director, Ben Moore, explains the rationale behind the incubator: “Attollo’s key objective is to create a substantial operational advantage in offshore marine operations. Digitalisation, new technologies and alternative ways of working are creating untold opportunities for minimising cost, whilst maximising the potential of offshore marine assets.

“During the oil and gas downturn, substantial progress in efficiency and innovation was made across the industry, but as oil prices rose last autumn, we saw inefficiencies in other business returning almost immediately, which had knock-on consequences for us. This has led to the decision to speed up our efforts and drive our already impressive progress faster, through our own incubator.

“Nobody can predict the future, but having a team dedicated to gaining deeper insight into future developments will be invaluable. The team’s sole purpose will be to imagine better operations and find ways to turn it a reality.”

Technological innovation will be the incubator’s main focus, but Attollo plans to go beyond technology and data into human and ethical insights, identifying how the modern workforce can better engage with technology and enhance human capability in the offshore environment.
