GSE Systems acquires TAS Engineering

TAS Engineering Consultants, a Stockton-on-Tees-based electrical and control engineering company, has been acquired by GSE Systems, a Baltimore, Maryland/Glasgow, UK-based provider of simulation and training solutions to the power, process, manufacturing and government sectors.

The acquisition is hoped to provide GSE Systems with a stronger UK and European presence by enabling TAS to deliver simulator-based training and engineering solutions, and to enable TAS to double the size of its workforce over the next three to five years.

Central to the growth will be TAS’s ability to design and construct control-room simulators for the energy industry, which allow power-plant operators to simulate the exact operations of a plant in a training scenario.  

The company will also provide training services for the simulators.
