Conference to explore opportunities in growing subsea cables market
20 August 2018The opportunities which exist in the subsea cabling market are set to be explored at a conference hosted by Subsea UK in London next month.
The Subsea Cables Conference will take place on Tuesday 18 September and will see industry experts come together to discuss and debate a range of topics including opportunities, project developments, reducing operating costs and technological challenges for the industry.
Speakers on the day will include Justin Dix and Dave White of the University of Southampton, Ian Osborne of Wood, John Davies of Helix Canyon Offshore, Antony Zymelka from the European Subsea Cables Association, Dr Mike Clare of the National Oceanography Centre, Saul Matthews of Synaptec Ltd and Phil Robinson of Bender UK.
The inaugural Subsea Cables Conference took place last year in Aberdeen and saw more than 100 industry professionals from across the globe travel to the Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre to sharing knowledge and experience, as well as explore future market opportunities.
Neil Gordon, chief executive of Subsea UK, said: "The increase in offshore wind projects has seen a growth across the subsea cabling industry. These projects are increasingly being carried out in deeper water with challenging seabed conditions and weather. Therefore, it is vital that the industry continues to evolve to ensure it is meeting these challenges and work is being carried out as efficiently as possible.
"This event gives a unique opportunity for the key players in the subsea cabling industry to come together and discuss the challenges facing the sector and identify opportunities for growth in the coming years.”
On the same day as the conference, Subsea UK will also be hosting its annual networking dinner in London, where Neil Gordon will deliver a keynote speech on the latest industry developments. The dinner, which will take place at Skylon in the Southbank Centre, will also provide an opportunity to network with industry professionals from across the industry.
Subsea UK is the not-for-profit trade association that champions the UK subsea supply chain, representing over 300 members. It acts as a focal point for all stakeholders to promote the sector and maximise its opportunities at home and abroad and provides a national forum for collaboration, diversification and technology development.
