Subsea Cables: The Cutting Edge Of Innovation And Opportunity

Website visit Address Virtual Event Start June 10, 2021 - 1:30 pm End June 10, 2021 -3:30 pm

For a UK economic success story, we need only look beneath the waves. Through its oil and gas industry, the UK has established itself as an underwater technology pioneer with 40% market share in the global underwater energy sector. As the energy transition accelerates, there is an opportunity for offshore renewables to push further expansion and cut-through of UK businesses into global markets.

In this webinar, hosted by the Offshore Renewable Energy (ORE) Catapult, our in-house experts and guest speakers will introduce:

– Four cutting-edge areas of research underway in our research labs and hubs

– New technologies for failure prediction being developed by three leading developers

– Disruptive insurance solutions for the subsea market

You will get your chance to put questions to speakers directly and on ORE Catapult’s LinkedIn page using the #CablesQuestions hashtag.
