Anticipating the long-term needs of our customers
The Newcastle Innovation Centre (NIC) provides a centralized facility for our comprehensive testing and qualification operations for flexible pipe solutions. Located near our existing manufacturing site, it streamlines and strengthens our already thorough on-site testing capabilities, improving control, and driving simplicity and transparency of our testing and quality assurance activities.
The data and intelligence generated at the facility is used to enhance performance, increasing the reliability and predictability of GE Oil & Gas products that are in service in the harshest environments around the world.
At the centre we also focus on the delivery of our core research and development (R&D) programs, enabling us to deliver next generation flexible pipes for the ultra-deepwater, high temperature/high pressure (HT/HP) fields of the future.
