UTC programme launch: Global subsea challenges - managing the old and the new

The programme for the 2013 UTC in Bergen is available in anticipation of next week's event.

 UTC

It is a challenge for operators and suppliers in our industry to connect new and innovative solutions to ageing infrastructure and installations.

 

The challenge is most likely to grow as even more subsea tiebacks are installed, equipment gets refurbished, control systems is modified and updated, and a new generation of people coming in to 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. Our two panel discussions will definitely be interesting. So will listening to the thoughts of Kristian Siem from Subsea 7 and Rod Christie of GE, kicking off the conference with keynote presentations.

 

UTC 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 will be a global 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.
