Offshore renewable energy will be very much on the agenda when the International Marine Contractors Association (IMCA) holds the first ever meeting of its long-established Europe & Africa Section in Germany.
With speakers from Technip, the German Shipowners Association, German Shipbuilders, Workships Contractors, Seaway Heavy Lifting, Bluewater, RWE, Vattenfall, ER Offshore and Global Maritime the meeting on Thursday 28 November at the Radisson Blu Hotel in Hamburg is open to members and non-members alike.
“IMCA established an offshore renewables workgroup in 2011 following growing concerns regarding safety in the offshore wind construction industry,” explains the association’s Technical Director, Jane Bugler. “Key aims of the group include helping to disseminate the knowledge, experience and recommended practice held by IMCA and its members to help improve safety and reduce installations costs in this sector. Our Hamburg Europe & Africa Section meeting provides us with the ideal opportunity to explain our core values, vision and proposed action to those actively involved in the offshore renewables industry.”
