Technical and business professionals are being offered the chance to further develop their knowledge of the green energy market.

Strathclyde University, in conjunction with National Subsea Research Initiative (NSRI) and industry body Subsea UK, has announced a new foundation-level course for the offshore renewable energy sector.

The programme, which will run on the 25th and 26th of next month, aims to apply practical experiences to the issues of field development planning, economics and core power generation.

It will cover the design and manufacturing phase, all the way through to installation and ultimately decommissioning.

Through interactive virtual sessions, students will have the opportunity to discuss the material and put questions directly to the course leaders.

Professor Feargal Brennan, head of naval architecture, ocean and marine engineering at Strathclyde, said: “The timing of this course is crucial; with the climate emergency backdrop and recently announced ambitious targets by Governments to massively expand Offshore Wind, there isn’t a more exciting time to engage with the Offshore Energy sector as it transitions from Oil & Gas to sustainable energy vectors including wind, wave, tidal, blue/green hydrogen and CCUS.

“The coming years will demand novel and innovative technical and commercial solutions building upon decades of world-leading offshore engineering experience if we are to maximise this opportunity for the benefit of the environment, our coastal communities, industry and service supply base.”

Neil Gordon, chief executive of Subsea UK added: “This joint university-industry training initiative by the leading international specialists in Offshore Engineering is precisely the type of cutting-edge activity needed which will inform ambitious individuals of the opportunities for themselves and their organisations to contribute to the most rapidly developing and exciting sector.”

Tony Laing, director for research and market acceleration at NSRI, said: “This course draws upon the industrial knowledge gained over the last 50 years in offshore marine industry. It will provide delegates with the underpinning knowledge they need to enable and flourish within the offshore renewables sector.”
