DNV GL appoints new regional manager for UK, southern Africa
OSLO, Norway -- Hari Vamadevan has been appointed as DNV GL’s regional manager for the UK and southern Africa. He was previously DNV’s UK regional manager, and he will oversee 13 oil and gas offices throughout the UK in this new role. The number of staff in the country has doubled from 400 to 800.
The addition of southern Africa to the region brings opportunities to transfer the knowledge and technology from the UK Continental Shelf (UKCS) to areas such as Angola, Nigeria, Ghana, and newer developments in Mozambique and Tanzania.
DNV GL’s offering to the market includes the Spadeadam test site in northern England. The facility is equipped to carry out large- and full-scale hazardous trials on oil and gas assets, simulating real-world environments.
In addition, DNV GL has onshore pipeline expertise at a flow center in northeast England. The center is one of the largest high-pressure natural gas flow facilities in the world.
