Past, Present and Future – Intervention by Remote Technology
In this, the 50th anniversary year since the formation of the SUT, it seems appropriate to reflect on how underwater intervention and engineering has evolved during the decades to where we are now, and also to offer a flavor of some of the new technology that is likely to become an important contributor to future subsea developments.
To provide a unique insight, based on first-hand experience gained over many years of service in the industry we have three eminently experienced speakers covering arguably the foundation disciplines of Diving Technology, ROV Operations and the more recent use of Autonomous Underwater Vehicles.
Chairman Phill Roberts – Wood Group
Using the evening’s theme of “Subsea Engineering Past, Present and Future” the speakers are as follows:
Tech Byte – Aberdeen SUT+
SUT+ is the official group for developing professional’s working in underwater technology, ocean science and subsea engineering. SUT+ organise technical and social events in a range of formats to support the education and career development of our members especially with the decline in Oil price and the impact it has had on graduates. Our aim is to facilitate personal development and encourage networking by providing a platform out with the traditional office environment.
Martin Dane; FCMI, AFNI, Oildive – Oilfield Manned Diving, Presented by Phil Roberts.
This presentation is aimed at giving a brief and easily digested history of diving and diving related equipment from the early days in the Southern North Sea up to present times. It will also touch on some of the important lessons learned, legislation and future developments. Presentation available here
Jim Mann; JMC Ltd – Intervention by Remote Technology
In keeping with the plan for this evening’s meeting; this presentation on intervention utilising remote technology will look at the development of the ROV capability over the decades, providing something for everyone engaged in the provision of underwater intervention solutions.
Peter Bennett; Kongsberg Maritime Ltd – AUV Technology, past, present and future
This presentation looks at how AUV technology has developed over the years to where we are today, with examples of how the technology is currently utilised. Also looking forward to where AUV technology is heading and how it may be utilised in the future.
Please note – Ample parking is available at the Robert Gordon University and is free after 4pm, the closest car park is directly opposite the entrance to the Sir Ian Wood building. Presentations will run until 19:30 and will be followed by a networking buffet.
