Subsea UK is to host a new virtual TV debate style event to highlight opportunities in the energy transition and the blue economy.
‘Subsea Live’ will explore how the subsea supply chain can capitalise on the opportunities presented by decaebonisation, with industry leaders and government panellists lined up to weigh in on the discussion.
It is due to take place from Tuesday, May 25 to Thursday, May 27.
Streamed live from the Subsea Live TV studio in Aberdeen, the free event will include a professional broadcast quality debate to engage the audience in exploring and discussing the near-term and longer-term opportunities in the energy transition and the blue economy.
Designed to provide a unique platform, Subsea Live will assess growth opportunities for the supply chain with industry experts featuring throughout the three-day event, which will include two panel sessions hosted by Kirstin Gove.
Representatives from UK Marine Energy Council, Baker Hughes, Ørsted and HSBC Bank PLC will make appearances at the event, contributing live from the studio and remotely.
Delegates will also hear from Subsea UK member companies on innovative solutions and multi-disciplinary applications in new and existing markets, while oil and gas operators and offshore wind developers will provide information on their up-coming projects and how the supply chain can engage with them.
Neil Gordon, chief executive of Subsea UK said: “The subsea industry, with its roots in oil and gas, a strong foothold in offshore wind and massive potential in other segments of the blue economy, has the capability to become one of the UK’s fastest-growing, high value industries of the future, contributing not only to economic recovery but, crucially, to delivery of our net-zero targets.
“Subsea Live will provide insight, analysis and debate around how the supply chain can utilise the blue economy to play a key role in the UK’s energy transition. Broadcast live from the Subsea Live studio, this virtual event is not just another webinar, it has been designed with high production values to engage delegates with live studio debates, pre-recorded videos and live presentations which they can dip in and out of, depending on their area of interest.”
