Orbis spotlights subsea challenges
Workshop on 3 May will cover issues such a corrosion and tidal scours
OrbisEnergy in Lowestoft is to host the first of a series of workshops on 3 May tackling subsea engineering issues in the offshore wind sector.
The workshops are being organised by the Supply Chain Innovation for Offshore Renewable Energy (Score) programme and will cover a range of issues from corrosion and tidal scour at turbine towers to keeping seals away from piling work.
The events, which are also supported by the Offshore Renewable Energy Catapult and Innovate UK Knowledge Transfer Network, are open to businesses already in renewables as well as those in oil and gas and other sectors with transferable engineering and technical skills.
OrbisEnergy business development lead Johnathan Reynolds said: “The challenges have been identified by people in the offshore industry – so there is a proven need and demand for solutions which helps with taking ideas to market.”
