2H Offshore Joins European Deepwater Mining Consortium

2H Offshore, an Acteon company, has joined an international European consortium comprising nineteen leading industry and research organisations to develop deepwater mining solutions.

Over the next four years, the European Commission funded project, known as Blue Mining, is developing seabed mining practices by creating new cost-effective solutions for environmentally friendly mining and processing in challenging and extreme environments. The Blue Mining project aims to unlock the huge potential of raw materials in untapped areas of the oceans.

2H Offshore has a key role in the development of the vertical transport system and will be working closely with the other consortium members to develop novel methods for correctly simulating the response of the system.

2H Offshore’s involvement in Blue Mining builds on more than 20 years of deepwater riser engineering experience, including numerous seabed mining projects. Graham Nicholson, project manager, 2H Offshore, said, “Blue Mining takes a unique look at all aspects of deepwater mining, not only addressing the question of technical feasibility, but also answering questions regarding economics and sustainability. We are excited to be involved in such a high profile joint industry effort that continues the broaden the range of expertise within 2H.”
