Subsea Expo 2019 – Kirsty Whyte interview with Richard Drennan, Director at Viewport3

 

How are you finding the show this year?

It’s been a great show for us, it’s been a great audience. Everyone here is subsea focused, a mature basin in the North Sea. Our ability to help people reduce their costs in subsea scanning is brilliant. We’ve got a lot of time for Subsea Expo, they’ve done a lot for us as a young business. It’s only natural that we come here and find like-minded businesses.

What services will you be showcasing at the event?

Our business focuses on accurate delivery of 3D data and we keep the process very simple by using single cameras. Quite often the cameras that you'll already have on your ROV, occasionally we’ll augment them with something with a better resolution and take home sub-millimetric data that people can rely on and that’s what matters. Giving someone a 3D shape is one thing, giving them a shape they have full confidence in is something different all together. Plenty of our customers have designed based on our data and we’ve never had any problems with it. It’s worked out really well.

We’ve seen an increased confidence in the industry recently, things like new technology in the subsea sector is having a big impact. How is Viewport3 responding to that?

Our business model is based on exactly that. During the downterm, the industry asked for more nimble companies, smaller companies that could react quicker and make decisions quicker. We embody that, we're a small team but we are able to react to the requirements of our customers and we just finished an absolutely brilliant year. Way beyond our revenue targets, had some very nice comments from our customers because we offer that reliable, technical grade 3D data.
