New Event to Help Boost North-West England Subsea Sector

Subsea UK is organising a new industry networking event to give subsea supply chain businesses in north-west England a chance to identify opportunities and debate the challenges facing the sector.

The regional gathering, at Preston’s Marriot Hotel on September 7, is targeted at firms operating in what is a growing hub for the UK subsea sector, with a focus on underwater activity in relation to oil and gas, defence, oceanology and marine renewables

Neil Gordon, chief executive of Subsea UK, said: “As an organisation covering the whole of the UK, we want to help all companies in the subsea sector exploit the potential to increase business at home and abroad, particularly in the current lower oil price environment.

“The north-west has seen continuing growth in the subsea sector across a variety of industries, particularly offshore wind. Subsea UK aims to provide a platform through which companies can come together to share best practice and debate the challenges that they face in their respective industries.

“This event is an important step in helping organisations in the north-west to come together and work towards a common goal. Anyone with an interest in the subsea industry is welcome to attend.”
