In Focus

Three oil and gas technology firms have joined forces to offer the global oil and gas industry an integrated and boundary pushing approach to well lifecycle integrity and production optimisation.

In February 2020, several years of hard work paid off for the pioneers of TCP with the release of the first full carbon fibre based material qualification certificate that complies to the DNV GL ST-F119 TCP industry qualification standard.

TECOSIM, a leading engineering company, has announced it is on track with its three-year project to discover new, scalable materials to use in the construction of wind turbine rotor blades. The CAE specialist has teamed up with Leibniz University in Hannover to carry out its research.

It has recently been reported that by developing wind turbines on offshore sites, we could provide more than enough clean energy to meet global electricity demand . However, with our energy usage rising exponentially, is there more we can do to maximise the power of offshore windfarms?

Editor's Comment 

This unprecedented period in all our lives has highlighted the importance of UK manufacturing to not only the economic prosperity of our country but also the societal significance of the sector. The Prime Minister’s recent call on the UK’s manufacturers to help step up production of vital medical equipment, such as ventilators illustrates this. Responding to coronavirus and reducing the spread of the peak requires a national effort, and UK manufacturers are rising to the task in ways that were never thought feasible.

The Royal Academy of Engineering has highlighted that one key aspect of addressing the damaging shortage of engineering skills in the UK economy is reducing both gender and race inequality. Despite some movement in this area the Academy says that there remains much to be done to achieve gender equality in engineering careers.

When watching films or TV shows of a certain vintage, one can’t help noticing how ubiquitous the street phone booth was for everyday ‘real-time’ communication. And there seemed to be an awful lot of paper on desks in episodes of The Bill, accompanied by the incessant clatter of manual typewriters. Needless to say, things have moved on in leaps and bounds from a technological perspective in today’s business and social world (maybe except for the reams of paper that still seem to be on quite a few office desks).
