Mearns & Gill, in collaboration with market intelligence experts Archer Knight and Energy Maritime Associates (EMA), are pleased to announce the launch of the conference programme for the Floating Energy Forum 2022.
The vision of the Floating Energy Forum is to address the challenges in the oil and gas sector and the emergent commercial and technological considerations involved in the development of renewable offshore energy.
The forum will address why floating energy is such an important part of the renewable solution moving forward and will provide a platform to share experiences and challenges in reaching net zero by the 2050 target. Whether oil & gas, wind, solar, tidal or hydrogen; all are captured with the whole supply chain being invited to be part of the community which the forum is building. The primary intent of the event is to bring together asset managers, operators, service providers and technologists to create the opportunity for meaningful and useful discussions as well as the chance to share knowledge and technologies with a cumulative ability to advance the industry.
The event will cover 4 main themes: oil and gas new developments and asset integrity and life extension while, specific to renewables, the focus will be on new technologies for floating systems and challenges and opportunities in offshore floating energy.
The inaugural event in 2021 saw over 400 delegates register to attend an afternoon of virtual presentations and networking. The organisers are delighted to announce that the 2022 forum will run as a hybrid event on 18th May with a physical conference and exhibition being held at sponsor Maersk Training’s facility in Kingswells, Aberdeen. The presentations will be live streamed globally to delegates unable to attend in person who will also have access to online networking, the opportunity to visit virtual exhibitors, watch on-demand content online as well as being able to get involved in the live panel discussions.
Confirmed presentations include:
- Innovative mooring systems for floating wind turbines and our lessons learned from the Hywind Tampen installation, Karl Daly, Vice President – Offshore Wind, DOF Subsea
- FPSO life extensions – John Butler, Global Lead for Energy Transition, Global Maritime
- High accuracy underwater visual inspection, measurement, and fault dentification using remote teleoperation – Jordan Jolly, Head of Robotics/Product Manager, Abyss Solutions
- New subsea MicroPile anchor technology under development – Jon Machin, Subsea Micropiles
- Ports: anchoring and enabling floating energy – Luigi Napolitano, Enterprise and Innovation Manager, Aberdeen Harbour Board
- Floating offshore wind to hydrogen: capturing the opportunity – Widya Wahyuni, Lead Engineer for the Dolphyn Development Project, ERM
There are still opportunities for companies to come on board as a sponsor or exhibitor. These opportunities come with the offer of presenting a 5-minute TechByte within the main conference programme. These short presentations are perfect for companies to present their technologies and solutions to the audience both in person and watching online.
Confirmed TechBytes include:
- Digital Twins for subsea and marine assets – Charlie Reith, SeaFlo Consultancy
- How to succeed in Taiwan’s offshore renewable market – Manuel Zehr, Formosan
