“IMCA has been hosting popular Lifting & Rigging events regularly since 2005 and was scheduled to do so earlier this year, however like many events the forum was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We decided to maintain communication with Members by hosting a webinar. The committee reviewed key topics identified as areas of interest by previous attendees and agreed to focus on the core subject of Crane Systems.”

This two-hour webinar is free to attend and should be of interest to:

  • Representatives from subsea contractors, offshore crane designers/manufacturers, equipment suppliers, crane training and academic institutions. Representatives of wind turbine contractors.
  • Anyone with a keen interest in lifting and rigging activities and associated technical innovations.
