There are a number of organisations and groups throughout the region who organise marine specific events whether they be for networking, training, or information purposes. The full diary of events is listed below.

Workshop to explore new solutions for Offshore Asset Risk Management, 27th June 2018, NOC, Southampton

The South Coast Centre of Excellence in Satellite Applications together with Marine South East and the Offshore Renewable Energy Catapult will be hosting this event taking place 1-4.15pm on 27th June 2018, at the National Oceanography Centre in Southampton.

Capabilities in autonomous systems and satellite applications are advancing rapidly and offer potential for improved cost-effectiveness in managing offshore assets and expanding functionality as assets move further offshore.

These trends have been explored and evidenced in previous events hosted by the South Coast Centre of Excellence. Now the intention is to focus on specific innovation targets and funding opportunities to realise these advances.

A wide variety of current challenges to offshore asset and risk management have been identified, including:

* Optimising maintenance scheduling to minimise maintenance costs and unplanned failures;
* Improving marine operations to enhance utilisation of vessel fleets and offshore service personnel
* Enhanced risk identification (eg weather risk, seas state, scour damage, oil spill, algal bloom) and characterisation to optimise remediation options and evidence decision-making.

In parallel, there is ongoing advancement in key enabling technologies that could, singly or in combination, be exploited in novel solutions to these challenges.

These include:
* Extended capabilities in remote sensing of surface contaminants and sea conditions, using a variety of sensing approaches (such as reflectometry) and satellite options (such as low-cost nanosats)
* Improved functionality of surface and underwater autonomous vehicles and their sensing systems, including advanced communications (through water and satellite)
* Advanced data analytics to generate high added-value to collected data, including model fusion to drive new risk forecasting approaches.

This workshop taking place on 27th June at the National Oceanography Centre, Southampton, from 1.00-4.15pm will provide an opportunity to discuss state of the art technologies in the above areas, and to highlight priorities for innovative solutions. Participants will be in position to partner in projects that secure investment to pilot these novel solutions.

If you are interested in attending this event please register; there are limited places available.

The full agenda for the event is as follows:

13.00 Introduction, overview and South Coast Centre of Excellence in Satellite Applications opportunities – Jonathan Williams, Marine South East

13.15 Offshore Renewables Asset Management – Simon Cheeseman, ORE Catapult

13.30 Seaplanner (Offshore Marine Coordinator) – Steve Pears (MD) SeaRoc/SeaPlanner

Find out about the Business Opportunities for Multi-Use Platforms at sea, 4th July 2018, at Seawork Southampton

Marine South East will be hosting a workshop to introduce the concept of multi-use platforms at seas (MUPS), to explore their potential uses and the business opportunities for the supply and value chains. The workshop will take place on Wednesday 4th July 2018 at 10am at Seawork in Southampton, Conference Room 2.

The workshop is hoping to attract people who want to learn more about future applications of offshore platforms, the critical requirements for building and operating them, and to understand the diversification opportunities they present for marine companies.

Topics that will be discussed include the technical and economic feasibility of large floating offshore platforms that can support multiple marine energy devices and other competing revenue generating activities.

Multi-use platforms and their activities have the potential to generate significant new global business opportunities for companies involved with:

* Design and engineering
* Production and fabrication
* Installation and decommissioning
* Operation and maintenance
* Equipment supply
* Sensing and remote monitoring systems
* ICT infrastructure

Potential uses for Multi-use platforms are wind, wave and current renewable energy, aquaculture, port facilities and security but there are many more.

The platforms would need support facilities such as service craft similar to wind-farm support craft and vessels to transport aquaculture production.

This open workshop will be hosted by Marine South East under the auspices of ENTROPI and OPEC which are European funded projects looking at Multi-Use Platforms at Sea. The workshop will take place on Wednesday 4th July 2018 in Conference Room 2 at Seawork in Southampton. To register your place please click on the link below:
