IMCA ROV Seminar

A number of significant opportunities and challenges face the subsea industry at this time. There are: increasingly strident requirements to satisfy environmental legislation; the challenges of ROV utilisation in the growing renewables sector; and the need to recruit and retain properly trained, competent people.

This seminar is designed to assist IMCA members in dealing with these, with a programme of technical and operational topics affecting the industry today and in the future.

Engage with the speakers

  • Graham Duncan of TechnipFMC – the IMCA ROV committee chairman – will be steering, facilitating and chairing the crew.
  • Trond Eriksen of Statoil is our keynote speaker
  • David Hall of TechnipFMC will explore the development of ROV technologies in Knowledge or certainty
