Rapidly developing commercial operations in the world’s oceans highlight the need to be able to operate with the least possible environmental impact; with new strategies and new technologies being developed to meet the challenges of harsher environments – such as ever-deeper water, and the Arctic.
The new Spillex Exhibition at Oceanology International 2014 (ExCeL London, 11-13 March 2014) will focus on the prevention of, and response to, environmental incidents in the marine environment.
“There is no doubt that providing a platform for the overlap between the Oceanology International industries and the environmental impact prevention and response sector can be successful as we saw in 2012, ” says Exhibition Director, James Coleman, of Reed Exhibitions.
“We are therefore delighted to announce that, in response to industry demand, Spillex will be supported by the Eurospill Association, and held alongside Oceanology International 2014, to cater to that need. The exhibition area and seminar programme will feature organisations involved with technologies and services such as spill prevention and response, training, contingency planning, oil spill modelling, environmental sensitivity mapping, and well and pipeline incident detection and intervention.
“Companies such as Briggs Marine and Vikoma have already taken up the opportunity to join us at ExCeL, ” he adds.
As Roger Mabbott, Director, EuroSpill Association, explains: “Interspill takes place every three years, and this new exhibition, Spillex in 2014, is designed and organised by Reed Exhibitions as a more focused platform for companies to leverage new opportunities alongside Oceanology International in the non-Interspill years. The free-to-attend seminar programme will have as a focal point the technology and delivery developments designed to operate in harsh environments. This ensures a particularly high level of synergy between Oceanology International and Spillex. The two are a perfect fit.”
Spillex in 2014 As commercial operations in the world’s oceans continue to develop, the requirement to be able to operate with the least possible environmental impact is an even greater focus than it has ever been for all industries.
Also, as activities move into new and harsher territories, meeting this requirement means the development of new strategies and technologies to cope with different and challenging environments.
The new Spillex at Oceanology International 2014 will focus on the prevention of, and response to, environmental incidents in the marine environment. The exhibition will feature the latest technology and service solutions for assessing the potential of spill related impacts, mitigating against and, if necessary, responding to them, including spill response; prevention and response training; contingency planning; oil spill modelling; and environmental sensitivity mapping.
