We're gearing up for the Next Generation Offshore Support Vessels Summit this coming April, taking place in Edinburgh. A strategic outlook for OSVs, the programme for the conference includes some real star speakers and includes Spinnaker's own insight!
Heike Deggin, Head of Marine Technology for IMO will be speaking alongside representatives from Maersk, IHS Petrodata, Statoil, BIMCO and many more.
The sessions include features on the European OSV market, effectively operating OSVs, the demands of the oil and gas sector, health and safety, operational challenges, renewable energy, new legislation and the private equity market.
The conference also covers understanding the charterparty, deep and ultra-deep water trends, and a session on recruiting and retaining a competent workforce – hosted by Spinnaker and Maersk.
It takes place on 10-11 April 2013, and is a great place to hear from leading industry representatives, network with your colleagues, hear detailed market forecasts, and participate in panel discussions in an informal setting.
Our chairman Phil Parry will also be on the panel at this event, so it's a great chance to meet him if you've not already.
We can't wait!
