The Aberdeen-based Subsea UK trade association is making its first marketing foray into south west England next month at an event in Bristol which aims to identify opportunities and efficiencies through collaboration which will protect jobs and revenues.
The event will focus on the steps the industry must take in order to survive and thrive. A number of topics will be explored including, collaboration, driving efficiencies through new technology and exports through exploration of new geographic markets.
Neil Gordon, Chief Executive, Subsea UK, explained: “There is a huge amount of innovation and expertise in the south-west of England, particularly in the areas of subsea, defence, oceanology and marine renewables. We want to support these companies, helping them identify and exploit opportunities and encourage the exchange of knowledge.
“This event provides an ideal platform for subsea companies in the south-west to come together and work towards a common goal, which is vital if the sector is to rise to the challenge of developing new solutions that will increase production and the recovery of hydrocarbon reserves at a lower cost.”
