IMCA to Hold Marine Energy Seminar in Amsterdam

The International Marine Contractors Association (IMCA) is to hold a Marine Renewable Energy Seminar on 25 September in Amsterdam (Novotel Schiphol Airport).

With the theme ‘Working together for safe and efficient operations’ this day-long seminar on the topic reflects the increasing involvement of IMCA members with the rapidly expanding global marine renewables sector.

Free to attend for IMCA members plus invited guests the one-day seminar will consider IMCA global initiatives and feature three sessions – ‘Achieving harmonisation of training and certification’; ‘Openness is the key to safe and efficient operations’; and ‘Future trends in the marine renewable energy sector’.

In addition to speakers drawn from IMCA member companies including Seaway 7, Boskalis, Subsea 7, Siemens Gamesa, DNV GL, TechnipFMC and Van Oord who will be joined by experts from the Global Wind Organisation (GWO); G+, the global health and safety organisation for the offshore wind industry; and The Carbon Trust.

Sessions will be chaired by Alan MacLeay of Subsea 7 and Steve Myers of Siemens Gamesa, respectively Chair and Vice Chair of IMCA’s Marine Renewable Energy Committee, and by John Davies of Helix Canyon Offshore.

Captain Andy Goldsmith, IMCA’s Technical Adviser – Marine sets out the aims of the event:

The seminar has been designed to enable attendees to have every opportunity to participate and therefore steer future IMCA guidance and influences. We are looking for three main outcomes – to promote harmonisation of training and certification for the benefit of the sector; to encourage and show that openness to safety works; and to prepare members for future developments.

”We are looking forward to welcoming personnel from marine contractors, field developers, clients, marine warranty surveyors, equipment suppliers and training establishments who are directly involve din marine renewable energy operations.”
