New Operations Manager at National Hyperbaric Centre

National Hyperbaric Centre welcomed Jim Creighton as Operations Manager at their facility in Aberdeen.

Jim has over 25 years’ experience within the diving industry, most recently as UK Business Unit Diving Manager at Technip.

Jim will become an integral member of the Hyperbaric Rescue team at NHC, organising and overseeing Hyperbaric Reception operations from a point of view of safety and efficiency. He has extensive experience within this field from his time at Technip where he assisted with the contingency plans for Hyperbaric Lifeboat recovery to the NHC facility.

Jim spent 15 years diving commercially, with the last eight of those years being as a regular member of the saturation team on the Technip DSV Orelia. In 2004, Jim spent time at college and university before re-joining at Technip as a trainee project engineer. Jim then spent his time working as a Project Engineer or Subsea Asset Engineer for Dive Contractors and Operators before returning to Technip as Diving Manger.

Ben Sharples, JFD Technical Director, said: “It is great to welcome Jim to NHC. He has a lot of relevant operational experience under his belt and will play a large part in maintaining and enhancing NHC’s position as the centre of excellence for subsea safety.”
