An engineering company has become the latest business to relocate to Plymouth Science Park.

Scarlet PL provides specialist tools and software for use in the worldwide oil and gas industry for the likes of Schlumberger and Halliburton.

Engineer and entrepreneur Colin Tattersall, the founder, director and chief executive of Scarlet PL, developed the tool, which features 12 sensors that measure physical properties in oil wells such as temperature, flow rate, fluid density and gamma radiation.

The move to Plymouth Science Parks will provide Scarlet PL with access to a range of facilities as well as the potential to work alongside other high-tech engineering businesses.

Tattersall said: “The team at Scarlet PL are constantly innovating and looking for ways to improve our technology to deliver the best solution for engineers.

“We are looking forward to establishing ourselves at Plymouth Science Park, which offers a high-tech working environment that reflects our company ethos and work.”

Fay Davies, business development manager at Plymouth Science Park, added: “Scarlet PL are an ambitious technology-focussed firm with aspirations to expand and evolve. We are delighted to welcome them to Plymouth Science Park where they can reap the benefits of being part of a like-minded business community and collaborations with the University of Plymouth.”
