MEMBER NEWS: J+S Subsea wins top subsea accolade in national awards

Subsea controls engineering specialists J+S Subsea has this week been named as the best Subsea Equipment Engineering & Operational Support Company in the UK Enterprise Awards.

The national awards, hosted by SME News, are in their sixth year and celebrate the achievements of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).

A spokesperson for the UK Enterprise Awards said: “It goes without saying that this is a fantastic achievement for J+S Subsea and a true marker of the hard work and commitment invested day to day.

“Despite the obvious hardships the last two years have brought to the UK, we’ve seen SMEs work tirelessly to adapt and overcome a myriad of challenges, and we believe more than ever the incredible dedication by these enterprises should be recognised.”

The news is the latest in a trail of success for the Kintore-based company.

As well as being named as a finalist last month in the Manufacturing & Engineering Start-Up category of the national StartUp Awards, J+S Subsea was also a finalist in the best small company category at February’s Subsea Expo awards.

This was in addition to the award of best Subsea Equipment Engineering Specialist in Corporate Vision’s Oil & Gas Awards last summer.

Managing director Phil Reid said: “J+S Subsea has established itself at the forefront of the subsea production control market since it was established in 2020.
“It is great for the success of the team to be acknowledged by these national awards, celebrating entrepreneurship across every industry in the UK.

“Meeting the needs of our clients will always be our main goal and this runs through everything we do, from the expansion of our services and development of new, exciting products, to training our staff to be the best in our industry.

“As the company grows, we will continue to cater to our clients’ needs and support them while providing a safe, cost-effective service.”

Get in touch

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.
