IMCA Lifting & Rigging Seminar 2018

This event (expanding from the IMCA Rope Forum) is a great way for delegates to get involved in discussions on issues affecting the industry.

We will focus on all aspects of offshore cranes – types, applications (including offshore, subsea, wind, heavy lift and decommissioning), operational modes, practical experience, new developments (hybrid/fibre based, digitalisation) and the future of subsea lifting.

The seminar is a combination of presentations and workshop sessions, with a strong focus on facilitating discussions between contractors, suppliers and research institutes.

Who attends

Representatives attend from a variety of subsea contractors, offshore crane designers/manufacturers, equipment suppliers, crane training and academic institutions.


The aims of the event are multiple, ranging from communication of the latest codes, products and developments to helping identify common issues and needs between offshore contractors. This can be fed back into future development strategies and code/guideline improvements. It’s an ideal opportunity to further discussions in the industry.


The one-day programme will feature expert speakers and workshops on four themes:

  • Codes and standards
  • Operators’ experiences
  • Supplier session
  • Training, academia and test houses

Further details will be published in due course, but in the meantime download the outline programme flyer:
