Local companies to share innovative solutions to global market issues within the energy industry

An event promoting work being carried out by East of England companies and their solutions to the challenges of exporting innovations to the global market within the energy industry is being held next week.

Local Solutions: Global Reach is the second annual EEEGR (East of England Energy Group) Marine Science and Technology Special Interest Group (SIG) event.

Companies such as DNVGL, ROVCO, 4C Offshore, Gardline, Cefas and James Fisher Marine Services will share pioneering ideas around autonomy, cable risk, international applications and sustainable development and how they have been developed to offer services and solutions to organisations around the world.

Set to take place on the 18th September at Norwich City Football Club the event will showcase the highly technical work being carried out by local companies.

Phil Durrant, managing director of Marine Space and the EEEGR Marine Science and Technology SIG chair said: “In the East of England we have a centre of excellence for marine science and technology, often being delivered by SMEs, to clients across the globe. This event offers the opportunity for those companies to highlight the innovative technologies and techniques that are being developed in this region to solve developer and operator problems across a range or marine sectors both here in the UK and internationally.”

Simon Gray, chief executive officer at EEEGR said: “I look forward to seeing the great work local companies are doing not only in the UK but around the world. It’s a true testament to the great work that is being carried out in our region.”

Tickets for the event are available on the EEEGR website (www.eeegr.com).
