Global Subsea Challenges – managing the old and the new. It is a challenge for operators and suppliers in our industry to connect new and innovative solutions to ageing infrastructure and installations.
Published: 2 April 2013
The challenge is likely to grow as more subsea tiebacks are installed, equipment refurbished, control systems is modified and updated, and a new generation of people coming into the industry shall relate to and understand technology developed before they were born.
The UTC 2013 program is designed to highlight some crucial industry challenges, and to provide some valid answers. The two panel discussions will definitely be interesting. So will listening to the thoughts of Kristian Siem from Subsea 7 and Rod Christie from GE, kicking off the conference with keynote presentations.
The Underwater Technology Conference 2013 has a treat for all participants.
For instance, do you like the taste of something new? Getting to know OneSubsea should be something worth spending some time on. In addition, the Underwater Technology Foundation have funded a study on the (lack of) qualified people issue in our industry. This is a study documenting global status, as well as pointing to possible solutions and listing the most important training/education facilities for our branch. The complete report will be distributed to all conference participants.
The program committee received a record number of papers for this year’s conference. The number of parallel sessions is therefore increased from 3 to 4, and the number of presentations from 30 to 44.
UTC 2013 is open for registration
UTC is a widely recognized conference and one of the most important international meeting grounds for subsea executives, managers, engineers and strategic and planning personnel.
The conference is open for registration – with the possibility to make hotel reservations. To be able to ensure accommodations for all delegates, exhibitors and speakers, a large number of hotel rooms in walking distance from the conference venue have been preordered.
