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.
