Australian autonomous systems company Abyss Solutions, which delivers data-driven engineering assessments for critical infrastructure, has announced that it will establish its new European hub in Aberdeen, Scotland.

The global, multiple award-winning organisation, with locations in Australia, USA, UAE, Brazil and Pakistan, recently moved into its new office at Neo Space in the city’s Riverside Drive. Abyss Solutions is actively recruiting to support this growth and capitalise on the experience and talent pool available in the Northeast of Scotland.

Founded by four scientists and engineers from The University of Sydney in 2014, Abyss Solutions use machine learning and robotics to inspect assets and detect anomalies such as corrosion for critical infrastructure across land, sea, air, and space. From the Hoover Dam in the US to water supply aqueducts in Scotland or the Sydney Opera House, Abyss has provided asset owners with the vital information they require to ensure the vitality of these structures.

The recent investment of AUS$15 million in new venture capital funding from AirTree, an early investor in breakout tech companies, has helped to drive the organisation’s regional strategies, which include its new European hub.

John Murray, Head of Region - Europe and Africa, of Abyss Solutions says, “With mature assets in the North Sea, it made sense to create our new European hub in Aberdeen to support clients on the ground. We strategically selected this location due to the proximity of the UK North Sea, Norwegian and Dutch waters, and the multitude of engineering experience that exists here. As an innovation centre that embraces collaboration in technology development, we believe that our new location will enable Abyss to grow and support a customer base across Europe and Africa.”

John continues “Our Abyss Fabric solution conducts inspection at scale and analyses corrosion, enabling our clients to reduce OPEX, prioritise maintenance plans, extend the life of their asset, and reduce emissions by enabling remote inspection work thus helping our clients achieve their net-zero targets. This solution was developed by a team of experts with decades of experience in asset integrity. By providing comprehensive analytics of every inch of a client’s asset, Abyss delivers unprecedented asset management and decision-making intelligence.”

Talking of the Aberdeen expansion and further growth plans, Masood Nasqhbandi, Co-founder of Abyss Solutions, said, “We are excited to lay down roots here in Aberdeen as we continue to strengthen our energy sector portfolio. It is an opportunity for us to tap into the excellent pool of local talent, from graduate level to experienced professionals as we look to expand the team in the coming months.”
