EC-OG (now known as Verlume) is a cutting-edge Aberdeen engineering firm. Initially established as an engineering solutions provider in 2013, EC-OG has grown to become a first-class technology provider in the Oil & Gas industry. With a highly experienced multi-disciplined team, EC-OG offers exceptional knowledge transfer and cross-industry innovation.The company has signed up to test their cutting-edge Subsea Power Hub (SPH) at the European Marine Energy Centre (EMEC). Sea trials of EC-OG’s first full-scale SPH system commenced in April 2017 at EMEC’s Shapinsay Sound test site.
The test programme is a subsea industry first with the combination of a marine energy converter coupled directly to a lithium based energy storage system. Testing of this hybrid system will validate the technical capability needed to meet a number of immediate high value subsea power applications, thus fundamentally enhancing the value proposition associated with ocean currents.
Scottish Enterprise have been instrumental in the continued success of EC-OG, facilitating significant funding for the SPH development programme and supporting the business throughout the rapid growth journey.
The company has since rebranded to Verlume.
