The Camlin Group to invest over £50M in R&D over the next 4 years

12th May 2021

As part of Camlin’s growth plans it will look to invest in innovation and state of the art technologies to solve industry wide issues and support the UK in meeting its net-zero emissions target.

Announcing an ambitious R&D investment programme, Peter Cunningham states: “The Camlin Group will be investing over £50M in R&D over the next 4 years to support and facilitate the digitisation and decarbonisation of the electricity and rail industries, with over £10M being spent solely on UK energy network optimisation projects to help our customer’s prepare for the ED2 Regulatory period. Our technologies play a vital role in making energy networks more efficient and with this investment we hope to play an even more important role in making the network greener and enabling the energy transition.”

Camlin’s goal is to optimise the critical infrastructures that people, cities and communities around the world depend on, all day and every day. As these networks get bigger and more complex they’re becoming exponentially harder to manage. That’s why we’re here - to make the world’s energy and transport infrastructures run smarter and more efficiently, ultimately helping our customers keep the lights on and keep passengers moving.

And with innovative solutions for railway operators to keep trains running in peak condition, we enable reduced service interruptions and for staff to work more safely.
