Brasilianske delegasjoner besøkte NCE Subsea

I samarbeid med Inventure Management (Brasil) og INTSOK organiserte NCE Subsea bedriftsbesøk i klyngen for to brasilianske delegasjoner under ONS.

Published: 7 September 2010
ONS i Stavanger er en viktig møteplass for internasjonale aktører i petroleumsindustrien. Stadig flere delegasjoner kommer dit. INTSOK har et eget program for å tiltrekke seg og følge opp slike delegasjoner.
 
Deltakere i internasjonale delegasjoner er som oftest bedriftsledere og ledere av organisasjoner som enten ser på markedsmuligheter i landet de besøker, eller ser etter samarbeidspartnere som kan bidra til forretning i eget hjemland.
 
Subsea klyngen i Bergen har etter hvert høstet internasjonal oppmerksomhet gjennom den aktiviteten bedriftene utøver i de internasjonale markedene, og den markedsføring NCE Subsea gjennomfører for å fremme klyngen. Det hele medfører både oppmerksomhet fra internasjonale medier, delegasjoner og samarbeidende organisasjoner.
 
To delegasjoner
 
Under ONS klarte vi, i samarbeid med Inventure Management og INTSOK, å tiltrekke oss to brasilianske delegasjoner som besøkte bedrifter i klyngen. Den ene delegasjonen bestod av representanter for bedrifter og organisasjoner i staten Espirito Santo. Disse ville møte mekaniske produksjonsbedrifter med internasjonale ambisjoner, samt å se på hvordan man organiserte aktiviteter og industri rundt baser, da man er i ferd med å åpne for privat eierskap i baser med kaianlegg i Brasil. Bedrifter som ble besøkt var Strømme gruppen, Norske ventiler, Solid vedlikehold og CCB. De fikk også en presentasjon av Imenco.
 
Den andre delegasjonen bestod av industrirepresentanter som ønsket kontakt med potensielle samarbeidspartnere for det brasilianske markedet. Bedrifter som ble besøkt var Seaproof Solutions, Odfjell Drilling, Framo Engineering, Norske ventiler, FMC Technologies og CCB. Deltakende i gruppen var en representant for innkjøpsdivisjonen i Petrobras. Hun oppfordret flere av selskapene til å etablere seg i Brasil, da de åpenbart hadde produkter Petrobras har stort behov for.
 
For begge delegasjonene ble klyngen og NCE Subsea presentert. Særlig interesse for dette fattet Petrobas ansvarlige for lokalt innhold (local content) og direktøren for olje og gass i den Brasilianske industriinvesteringsbanken, BNDS. Dette kan på sikt knytte NCE Subsea tettere til viktige organisasjoner og beslutningstakere i Brasil.
 
I uke 37 vil en delegasjon på over 20 personer fra Bergensregionen være i Rio de Janeiro under Rio Oil&Gas. I tillegg vil flere selskaper i klyngen være tilstede med utstilling på messen.
