THREE60 Energy welcomed Scottish Cabinet Secretary for Net Zero, Energy and Transport, Michael Matheson MSP

Mr Matheson was given a live demonstration of THREE60 Energy’s renowned and proprietary Scan2Fab digital technology, which can be adopted across different energy industries – including engineering and construction projects, in the oil and gas, renewables, carbon capture & storage and hydrogen sectors.

The cabinet secretary, who has cross-government responsibility for coordination of net zero policy, encompassing energy, transport and environmental protection, as well as delivery of COP26 in Glasgow next month, met with us as part of a wider visit to the region.

The Scan2Fab technology has revolutionised repair and integrity scopes with a truly digitised approach. It scans components of both onshore and offshore structures and creates 3D models, from which fabrication drawings and construction workpacks can be auto-generated. It allows materials to be procured in a matter of hours and drawings tailored to the fabricator’s needs, with construction worksheets prioritising what is important for construction crews instead of producing superfluous information.  

The technology not only provides significant cost and schedule savings for customers but importantly removes the need for personnel mobilisation offshore and to sites – all which leads to reduced carbon emissions.

This technology is spearheading our Engineering, Procurement, Construction & Commissioning (EPCC) international expansion and enabling us to export home grown proprietary digital technology to other hubs across our respective geographies.

THREE60 Energy Managing Director, Alasdair Smith said:

“It was a pleasure to host Mr Matheson at our Aberdeen office and as we gear up for COP26, it was an ideal opportunity to demonstrate our Scan2Fab technology at such a crucial time for the energy sector.

“We are proud to be part of Scotland’s energy services supply chain, which is diversifying and expanding, and as such, we are experiencing significant and sustained growth across the geographies in which we operate. Our highly skilled team, combined with our ability to provide a flexible service model at scale, means THREE60 Energy is ideally positioned to support customers as they look to embrace more environmentally friendly solutions which are also more cost efficient and safer.

“THREE60 Energy is an innovative, pioneering company and our approach to digitalisation for the energy transition has helped us create a globally leading position. Our collaborative approach with the wider sector, including OGUK, NZTC, SDI and our customers, is critical as we continue on our own path towards achieving net zero.”

Michael Matheson MSP, Scottish Cabinet Secretary for Net Zero, Energy and Transport, said:

“Scotland has an opportunity to become a global leader in the energy transition. The work being undertaken by THREE60 perfectly illustrates how we are at the forefront of creating and implementing world-leading solutions that can play a pivotal role in not just reducing our own emissions, but helping other countries decarbonise.

“The growth of our world-class supply chain is creating jobs across the country within a variety of sectors, adding value to the economy and building significant opportunities for further exports.  The Scan2Fab is a superb example of a technology being developed and adopted to support our net zero journey and it was great to be able to see and experience first-hand the leading solutions THREE60 Energy is creating.”
