MEMBER NEWS: Atlas Professionals and Inosys announce strategic relationship

Atlas Professionals (Atlas) and Inosys are pleased to announce the signing of a global strategic Memorandum Of Understanding (MOU) to combine Atlas’ marine industry-leading resourcing and HR services with Inosys’ world class Seekat next-gen remote oversight and assurance digital platform.

With technology playing an increasingly critical role in marine operations, companies recognise the need to accelerate the adoption of digital solutions to ensure they remain at the competitive leading edge. Seekat is a digital technology stack for a new generation of offshore survey, construction and operations and maintenance projects. By combining content management, data visualisation, geospatial and collaboration tools in a real-time platform, Seekat enables clients to do more, with less.

As such, the symbiotic collaboration between Atlas and Inosys brings together deep industry knowledge, technical resources, digital strategy and know-how to deliver solutions for a new generation of offshore energy projects, helping clients through successful transformations in their operations. “The collaboration is a powerful combination with many synergies that reflect current industry digitalisation and automation trends and clients’ future needs. Inosys’ deep understanding of the problem space, its digital expertise, and agile, collaborative approach is uniquely complementary to how the Atlas business team works,” said Giles Thompson, Inosys Director.

Atlas’ Offshore Management and QC division focuses on helping developers and operators grow their natural energy resources by providing key consultancy services related to exploration, survey and installation. “Our core activity is the provision of highly experienced and qualified consultants, including client representatives, supervising and monitoring complex offshore and onshore operations,” said Grant Johnston, Commercial Manager for Management & QC and Renewables at Atlas.

“Our Professionals work closely within our clients’ project teams to manage day to day offshore and onshore operations, review or compile scopes of work and procedures and check contractors reports. Thanks to this collaboration, Atlas’ clients and their representatives will have the opportunity to use Seekat. Working with Inosys will allow us to deliver more flexible solutions, providing enhanced QC and assurance services, both remotely and offshore, bringing transformation for our clients and the very best level of service to ensure our clients are on the best path for delivering successful projects,” Grant concludes.

AREG is the original energy transition organisation, working on behalf of members to empower the energy supply chain and champion its expertise. Please get in touch if you have any questions or would like to find out more about membership.

AREG has played an important role in the growth of Scotland’s renewable energy sector, engaging the supply chain and developing the European Offshore Wind Deployment Centre. However, we are only at the very beginning of the transition that AREG was established to both lead and support so there are still opportunities for companies to get into the constantly evolving renewables supply chain. We look forward to continuing our work together as renewables builds on its place as Scotland’s main source of power, and as we seek to deliver real change in the crucial areas of heat and transport.

Aberdeen & Grampian Chamber of Commerce has worked closely with AREG since its formation. The recent progress in the developments of offshore wind projects by Equinor and Vattenfall are as a result of the work of the group over many years. The north-east is known as the oil and gas capital of Europe. At the Chamber, we believe the region must evolve its position to being recognised as the energy capital. Whilst hydrocarbons will continue to be essential in driving our economy for years to come, the generation of renewable resources will play an increasingly important role in providing cost-effective power, innovative development and economic growth.

The enthusiasm and dedication of the early group that would become AREG was fundamental in us choosing to launch All-Energy in Aberdeen. The first tiny show was held in 2001, and AREG’s Chairman at the time, Jeremy Cresswell, played such an active role that I often describe him in terms such as All-Energy’s ‘midwife’. All-Energy is now the UK’s largest renewable and low carbon energy exhibition and conference in terms of number of attendees, space booked, and number of exhibiting companies. As AREG became firmly established, their presence and support for the event grew spectacularly over the years. We thank them most sincerely for their invaluable input.


Vattenfall has forged a strong working relationship with AREG through the development of the European Offshore Wind Deployment Centre. AREG has worked tirelessly on behalf of the North East and it can take enormous credit for the growth of sustainable energy in the region and the path it has cleared for the region to capture further investment.


Aberdeen City and Shire is emerging as a key location for renewables by successfully transferring its world-class oil and gas expertise into the sector and AREG has done much to advance this through a broad range of initiatives. It has acted as a catalyst in driving further investment in the local economy by engaging with companies, Government, public bodies and existing projects and we have been pleased to support their efforts. Scottish Enterprise will continue to engage with AREG as we increase Scotland’s use of renewable energy.
