An offshore technology company has won its second award within a week as it looks to accelerate subsea digitalisation usage.

Scottish firm WFS Technologies won The Spectator’s ‘Economic Disruptor of the Year’ for Scotland and Northern Ireland award for its work on subsea digitalisation. This follows its ‘Business Innovation’ award from Oil & Gas UK for its Seatooth technology.

Brendan Hyland, CEO at WFS Technologies, said: “Winning the Economic Disruptor of the Year is a tremendous recognition of our commitment to deliver technologies which improve safety, reduce risk of environmental incidents as well as minimising the cost of ownership.”


Seatooth products have the potential to disrupt the offshore energy industry by providing operators of oil and gas platforms and wind farm installations with the ability to digitalise their subsea assets, reducing cost and increasing asset life through insight derived from real-time data.

Seatooth technology can communicate through steel, ground, sea water and the water-air boundary. It performs a key role in tackling the real-time monitoring of offshore assets and production both above and below surface.

Theo Priestley, chief marketing officer at WFS Technologies said: “Subsea digitalisation is a major focus for operators as they look to understand their field operations through real-time data, and WFS is at the forefront of this new wave with its unique wireless products.”
