Fife will have a strong presence at next month’s SPE Offshore Europe conference in Aberdeen.
The four-day event is one of the largest technical conference and exhibitions for the offshore exploration and production industry, with more than 36,000 attendees from over 100 countries.
Eight Kingdom companies will be on the Invest in Fife stand — Bridge Systems Ltd, Burntisland Fabrications, Ductform HFE, GES Oil Field Services, Lamond and Murray, MRS Training and Rescue, ProcessPlus and Utility ROV Services.
Meanwhile Dunfermline hearing protection firm CluisTROM and Subsea International Ltd, based at Balbirnie, will also attend the exhibition, which showcases the latest technology, services and expertise.
Councillor Altany Craik, convener of the economy, tourism, strategic planning and transportation committee, said the exhibition has led to numerous business opportunities for the area in the past.
He said: “A Fife stand has been organised for the Offshore Europe exhibition and conference for a number of years now in response to demand from local companies that trade in the energy sector.
“Fife Council’s Invest in Fife team will also be in attendance, showcasing the key development sites and Fife’s successful world leading projects – Energy Park Fife and Gateway Rosyth.
“The council’s Economic Development team has a fantastic track record in supporting the development of Fife businesses to help grow a vibrant local economy.
“Eight businesses will be joining us this year to showcase to thousands of visitors from around the world as well as demonstrate our commitment to making Fife the best place to do business.
“Over the last 20 years Fife businesses have been showcasing their products and services at Offshore Europe as part of a Fife Group stand.
“This has generated a number of business opportunities which have allowed growth and development of businesses within Fife.”
The exhibition sees the complete supply chain of companies participating including operators, drilling contractors and oilfield service companies.
Lindores Distillery in Newburgh, Lochgelly’s Rumburra Scotland and Tayport Distillery will also exhibit at the event.
