With 35 years’ experience in subsea engineering, Birnie is a Professor of  Subsea Engineering at the National University of Singapore where he specializes in Subsea Systems and Subsea Construction, teaching MSc level graduates and managing research programs in the field of ultra-deep water operations. Subsea UK’s one-day course has been specially developed to provide a broad but in-depth overview of the sector

Keppel and NUS Set Up Corporate Lab

Keppel Corporation (Keppel) and the National University of Singapore (NUS) announced the founding of the Keppel-NUS Corporate Laboratory, in collaboration with the National Research Foundation (NRF), Prime Minister's Office, Singapore. The laboratory, which will be based at the NUS Faculty of Engineering, will be established with an investment amount of S$75 million. The launch of the Keppel-NUS Corporate Laboratory was graced by Deputy Prime Minister of Singapore, Teo Chee Hean, who is also Chairman of NRF. The Keppel-NUS Corporate Laboratory is the second laboratory to be established under the

The Korean Research and Development Institute (KORDI) purchased a 250 kHz GeoSwath Plus COMPACT version which has already been successfully operated in shallow water bathymetry projects on vessels of opportunity. The National University of Singapore (NUS) are operating a similar system at 500 kHz on a daily basis in a coastal engineering project - also from a very small platform. The Japan Agency for Marine-Earth Science and Technology (JAMSTEC) have installed a GeoSwath Plus AUV version in their 4km rated autonomous underwater
