Subsea Meets Aquaculture Project Goes to Phase 2

GCE Subsea and NCE Seafood Innovation have secured funding for the second phase of a project to explore the crossover potential between Oil & Gas and Aquaculture.

The cluster-to-cluster project Subsea meets Aquaculture between GCE Subsea and NCE Seafood innovation is facilitated by Deloitte and sponsored by Hordaland County.

In phase 1 of the project, the main challenges of the aquaculture industry were reviewed and matched with competence and solutions from the offshore oil and gas industry, in order to identify possible areas of innovation.

Phase 1 was concluded with a one-day excursion and workshop where the participants discussed possible crossover topics. Some of the potential areas for crossover that were identified, were control and instrumentation systems, remote control, sensor technology, advanced image recognition, data acquisition and analysis, tracking systems, environmental survey, piping and valves, surface protection and anti-corrosion, marine operations, diving and ROV support, anchoring, materials and more.

In Phase 2 the project will proceed to zoom in on some of the most potent areas for crossover and set up a project organisation and a series of networking events. Here, representatives from the aquaculture industry will meet representatives from offshore oil and gas to discuss innovative solutions that can be derived from existing offshore oil and gas knowledge and solutions. Possible solutions will be vetted and prioritised for further development with a view to initiate several R&D projects.
