Tyne Subsea Welcome Future Leader To North East Facilities

This week Tyne Subsea welcomed members of the British Valves and Actuators Association’s (BVAA) Future Leaders Programme to its facilities at Killingworth, Newcastle.

General Manager, Paul Smith, spoke to members of the young leadership programme about the multi-million pound facilities, as well as Tyne Subsea’s environmental and pressure testing capabilities. This was followed by a tour of the facility and the pressure testing equipment within.

The Future Leaders Programme has been designed for young professionals from valve and actuator businesses in the UK who have been recognised as future leaders by their employers. The year-long programme focuses on their professional development, with organised development courses, industry experience days and tours of significant centres of excellence to support their learning and maximise their leadership potential.

Paul Smith said: “This was a great opportunity to showcase Tyne Subsea’s pressure testing and product validation capabilities to the next generation of leaders in valves and actuators businesses. We’ve received some amazing feedback from our guests, who were all very impressed with our facilities and what we do.”

Hyperbaric Chambers

Our facility offers nine hyperbaric testing chambers ranging in size and pressure capability including the world’s largest, commercially available hyperbaric chamber which can simulate water depths down to 4,500 metres.
