On our way to Perth, the GCE Subsea delegation stopped over in Singapore to meet Innovation Norway, the DNV GL Materials & Structural Laboratory and the National University of Singapore, the latter being a member in the Global Subsea University Alliance (GSUA).
Promoting the GCE Subsea Cluster
Key Australian LNG projects are currently making the transition from construction to the operational phase, thus process control and automation technology played a big part in this year’s conference. Over 100 experts from leading companies provided input on how industry, government and other key stakeholders should continue to work closely together to reduce costs and improve productivity.
The role of GCE Subsea at AOG 2016 is to promote the cluster, its partners and members. Furthermore, GCE Subsea seeks to establish strategic collaborations with key clusters and players in the Australian market. We had the pleasure of meeting our good friends from ClampOn, Dof Subsea, FMC Technologies and Subsea Energy Australia at the conference expo, who are all related to the GCE Subsea cluster.
Curtin University, also a member of the Global Subsea University Alliance, visited both on campus and on the expo.
