The oil and gas and construction sectors will come together next month to explore how visualisation technology could change their industries.

Hosted by the Oil and Gas Innovation Centre (OGIC), the Visualising our World event will examine the current and future applications of tech in both sectors.

It will feature keynote speakers from BP and Morrison Construction, as well as representatives from a range of firms including Return to Scene, Oceaneering and Multivista.

A number of interactive stands will demonstrate the use of visualisation tech, including augmented reality and asset management software.

Representatives from Construction Scotland Innovation Centre, OGIC, and Robert Gordon University will also be in attendance.

Ian Phillips, CEO of OGIC said: “Often when new technology is developed it becomes apparent that it presents opportunities and benefits for multiple industries, and this collaboration between the oil and gas and construction innovation centres is a prime example of this.

“In terms of oil and gas, there is a wide scope for the benefits visualisation technology can bring to the industry including reducing cost and time taken on projects.

“This event provides a unique opportunity to explore the latest technological advances and look to the future of visualisation.”

The free event will take place on Thursday, November 8 at Aker Solutions in Dyce.

Ben Westland, head of strategic and commercial operations at CSIC, said: “Often when a new technology is first developed, it takes a while for companies to realise the range of opportunities and benefits that it offers. In terms of construction, visualisation technology can help reduce costs and time taken on projects. This event provides a unique opportunity to explore the latest technological advances, look to the future of visualisation and find out what it could mean for construction businesses.”
