Scottish engineering firm completes space mission

An Aberdeen engineering firm has just completed its own space mission. Imes, which has its HQ in the Granite City, has developed a sophisticated piece of technology that can play a key role in satellite launch operations. The firm was awarded a contract to develop and manufacture complex equipment which accurately weighs new satellites during the critical fuelling process. According to the firm, the technology used in the aerospace contract can be applied to a series of oil and gas projects, including monitoring systems, line tension meters and subsea electrical testing.
