Aquatec has taken the Best Small Company award home to Basingstoke after receiving the accolade at the awards ceremony, organised by the Global Underwater Hub on February 23, 2022, at P&J Live in Aberdeen.

The Subsea Expo Awards, which celebrate the companies and individuals leading the way in the UK’s £8billion underwater industry, have already recognised Aquatec in 2020 by shortlisting one of its lead engineers in the Emerging Young Talent category.
