Offshore Wind Opportunity for UK Subsea Firms
UK industry body believes there is a huge opportunity for subsea companies to step up and play their part in helping to meet the world’s renewable energy targets, as the global offshore wind expenditure expected to rise to over £350 billion between now and 2026.
Subsea UK will be running an event to explore the offshore wind developments that are currently underway, while offering practical help and advice to companies looking to access the rapidly growing offshore renewables market.
Chaired by Neil Gordon, chief executive of Subsea UK, the event will welcome speakers from SIEM Offshore Contractors, Ecosse Subsea Systems, DeepOcean and James Fisher Marine Services, to discuss the synergies between the subsea and offshore renewable industries, share lessons learned, and examine the role that offshore renewables will play in the future energy mix.
The seminar will also look at ways in which the industry could work together to simplify existing initiatives in a bid to increase efficiencies and reduce the cost of installing and maintaining wind farms.
The event will take place at The Chester Hotel, Aberdeen on September 20.
