A flagship energy event is to take place in Aberdeen next month after Omicron restrictions were scrapped in Scotland.

The Global Underwater Hub, the organiser of Subsea Expo 2022, has confirmed the showcase will go ahead as planned.

It will be held at the P&J Live on the outskirts of the Granite City between February 22 and 24.

The Scottish Government announced on Tuesday that limits on attendance at indoor public events will go from Monday.

Table service in hospitality and one-metre social distancing in indoor public places are also due to be axed after cases of Omicron peaked in Scotland.

Billed as the world’s largest subsea exhibition and conference, there were question marks around whether Subsea Expo would go ahead after the emergence of the Covid-19 variant.

A ban on large indoor public events has been in place in Scotland since boxing day as ministers tried to combat the spread of Omicron.

It led to the postponement of other industry events, including Scottish Renewables’ Offshore Wind Conference and Offshore Europe, which was also due to be held in Aberdeen.

Subsea Expo being given the nod is a welcome sign that in-person energy events could soon become a staple again.

This year’s showpiece will focus on ‘Oceans of Opportunity and aims to highlight the “capability and ingenuity” across the industry.

Hundreds of people are expected to flock to the P&J Live to hear from world-leading experts on a range of subjects and celebrate the sector’s achievements at the Subsea Expo Awards.
