GSE Systems is celebrating its 40th anniversary on Teesside this year.
Originally founded in 1973, Teesside Automation Services – which later became TAS Engineering Consultants – have been providing engineering and consultancy services from their Teesside base across a wide range of industries to clients worldwide.
The company, which formed part of the GSE Group of companies in 2010, relocated in December last year and are now situated on the Three Acres Business Park in Thornaby.
GSE Systems Inc. is a global engineering and simulation company, operating in more than 35 countries with an impressive portfolio of high-profile clients in power generation and process markets. Globally, the company has offices in the UK, Sweden, China, India and the USA.
The UK operations provide specialist engineering solutions throughout the project lifecycle from concept to commissioning including electrical consultancy and design, IC&A engineering, project management services, simulator-based training solutions and other specialist E&I and safety consultancy services.

GSE Systems’ UK operations director, Paul Welford, explains: “Our office move represents a step change in our outlook and signals our true growth intent as a business. This coincides with an exciting period where we have rebranded and successfully delivered some high profile projects.
“As well as providing modern facilities for our staff we feel the move represents an attraction to the high quality engineers we need to add to our team and a professional environment to work with our clients.”
GSE’s current projects include a tank farm overfill protection system for a major global oil and gas corporation; electrical safety consultancy, including fault level, arc flash and protection co-ordination studies for a high profile engineering company across their global sites and instrumentation and electrical design for a process module as part of a platform life extension project for a North Sea oil operator.
GSE Systems has also recently announced a partnership with EDF Energy UK as part of a £15m renovation at EDF Cannington Court, Somerset, where the company will supply cutting-edge visualisation and simulation technologies for training energy industry workers.
The company offers opportunities to apprentices and engineers looking to develop a career in engineering. Since the move in December, GSE Systems has recruited eight new members of staff, including two modern apprentices through NETA Training.
