Sustainability: The Subsea Industry and the Evolution of Energy

The Society for Underwater Technology, The Hydrographic Society in Scotland and The International Marine Contractors Association are holding our popular annual joint event on 5th November 2020 in Aberdeen and online.

The world is changing at a rapid pace, energy needs are increasing in parallel with a renewed focus on sustainable operations. The global market of 2020 has so far proven that all industries require the ability to adapt to fluctuating conditions. Technology developments continue to advance to improve all aspects of offshore operations. This brings the possibility to explore further and deeper with longer tiebacks and remote wells. Technology provides efficiency improvements for day-to-day operations, enhancing the sustainability of the offshore energy industry.
As energy demand increase, the transition to non-hydrocarbon sources of energy requires a shift in technology focus. An established renewables energy industry now allows lessons learned to be shared both ways between hydrocarbon and renewables industries.

Technology developments which are key to the sustainability of energy will be discussed across three sessions. Each session will set the scene with a keynote speaker and feature elevator pitches from our sponsors presenting the latest developments.

3 Day pass | Members £30.00 | Non-Members £50.00
