Companies and technology developers from Scotland and Ireland are leading the world in the creation of the growing wave and tidal energy sector. Meanwhile, Scottish oil and gas supply chain businesses have a global reputation for excellence, built over more than 50 years of exploration and production activity in the harsh environment of the North Sea. An event in Aberdeen next month will explore how the two industries can work together to exploit growth opportunities.
Under the Opportunity North East (ONE) Oil and Gas Diversification Programme, and through the Ocean Power Innovation Network (OPIN), the one-day workshop in Aberdeen on 14 June 2017 will bring together know-how from the complex upstream offshore environment with the newest of the offshore energy industries.
The workshop is designed to provide exclusive access to key speakers and companies from the wave and tidal industry, including Atlantis, OpenHydro, Sustainable Marine and EC-OG. Attendees will learn about the available support for wave and tidal collaboration and benefit from sharing development information and insights from both sectors.
The event is free to attend for companies that have experience and know-how of the offshore sector and have a desire to work with developers from the wave and tidal industry for mutual benefit.
