COREteQ Systems awarded Innovate UK-funded manufacturing and materials loan

COREteQ Systems, a company that develops and manufactures high-reliability Electrical Submersible Pump (ESP) motor systems for upstream oil production and geothermal applications, has won funding in the highly competitive Innovation Loan Competition run by Innovate UK.

The loan will enable COREteQ Systems to carry out further value engineering in its products, and to streamline its manufacturing to optimise cycle times. The aim is to be able to scale up to meet the high forecast demand for its products and services.


COREteQ Systems will use the funds to apply new materials and manufacturing methods, in order to reduce product costs while maintaining the performance of the equipment required for the demanding pumping applications.

The Manufacturing and Materials Innovation Loan Competition was part of a pilot funding programme from Innovate UK. The organisation offered up to £50 million in attractive loans across five industry sectors for highly innovative SMEs with transformative products.


COREteQ Systems’ CEO, Dr Hassan Mansir, said: “Innovate UK’s pilot loan programme was introduced to help accelerate the growth of some of UK’s most transformative SMEs. We are delighted that our innovative technology and potential impact on oil and gas, and on geothermal energy, has been recognised in such a highly competitive scheme. We are excited to use this investment to improve our cycle time and significantly increase our production rates”

Tim Sawyer, Chief Investment Officer of Innovate UK, commented: “Innovative, ambitious businesses across the UK can see COREteQ’s trailblazing work and the opportunities that Innovation Loans offer and follow in its footsteps. Innovations need different types of funding support depending on how close they are to market. Getting the right funding at the right time can be game-changing for a business, to scale up its productivity and growth. Patient, flexible loans help innovations that are near to market, where there is less risk involved and we are pleased to support COREteQ through this pilot programme.”
