Lifting & Rigging Seminar: IMCA Puts Accent on Offshore Cranes

The International Marine Contractors Association (IMCA) has announced details of its annual ‘Lifting & Rigging Seminar – return to offshore cranes’.

The seminar will focus on all aspects of offshore cranes – types, applications (including offshore, subsea, wind, heavy lift and decommissioning), operational modes, practical experience, new developments (hybrid/fibre based, digitalisation) and the future of subsea lifting.

It will take place on September 27, at the Novotel Hotel, Schiphol Airport, Amsterdam.

Mark Ford, IMCA’s technical manager, said: “The Lifting and Rigging seminar is a great way for delegates to get involved in discussions on issues affecting the industry. It’s an opportunity to identify common issues and needs for offshore contractors, which can feed into future strategies and guidelines for improvements.”

The seminar is aimed at subsea contractors, offshore crane designers/manufacturers, equipment suppliers, crane training and academic institutions. It will be a combination of presentations and workshop sessions, with focus on facilitating discussion between contractors, suppliers and research institutes.

David Cannell from TechnipFMC and chairman for this event, said: “We have a great agenda and important contributions from major industry contractors, operators and suppliers. It’s also an opportunity for delegates to hear about some of the latest technology and thinking on crane operations with presentations from top academic and training institutions.”
