MEMBER NEWS: SCS Ltd. Signs Distributor Agreement With Blueye Robotics AS.

Subsea Commercial Services Ltd. (SCS) is proud to announce the securing of the exclusive Scottish distribution rights for Norwegian ROV manufacturer Blueye Robotics AS.

Founded in 2015, Blueye has its roots in the highly renowned Centre for Autonomous Marine Operations and Systems (AMOS) at The Norwegian University of Science and Technology. With over one thousand ROVs delivered to more than 50 countries worldwide, Blueye’s product offering is proven, very capable and technologically extremely evolved.

Callum Magee, SCS’s Managing Director, leans on his years of small ROV experience when stating: “Blueye has nailed it! If you wrote down a list of the limitations and frustrations involved in Mini-ROV operations, the Blueye X3 ROV removes everything on that list. For me, the integration of hardware and software sets the X3 apart. The lack of traditional ROV topside, enabled by networked devices and downloadable piloting, viewing and reporting software, coupled with the vehicle’s power and payload capabilities, make it the complete package”.

Deployed in underwater remote visual inspection and survey applications, the battery powered X3 is equipped with work enabling sensors, manipulators, sonars and positioning systems from a range of leading manufacturers. The X3 has no topside case or cables, with the ROV benefiting from an integrated Wi-Fi and Bluetooth hub which enables viewing and recording on personal devices. The vehicle is piloted via a wireless handheld controller, reducing risk and increasing flexibility on work sites, remote locations and vessels.

Christian Gabrielsen, CEO of Blueye is enthusiastic about the relationship: “We see Scotland as a key geographical region and are delighted to have teamed up with SCS. They have a great deal of experience and an extensive network in our primary market sectors and we’re looking forward to supporting their efforts in developing the Scottish market”.

SCS is organising a client roadshow across Scotland during the second half of November 2022 with live demonstrations of the X3 available upon request. Please contact SCS to book your time slot. SCS will also be exhibiting the X3 and our other subsea solutions at Subsea Expo, February 2023, Aberdeen, Scotland.

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.
