IMCA’s Asia Pacific regional webinar offers technical presentations and a regional update
Registration is open for the International Marine Contractors Association (IMCA) Asia Pacific Regional Webinar taking place on 9 December (start time 08:00 GMT). The event, hosted by IMCA’s Asia Pacific Regional Committee, focuses on current and topical issues and provides an opportunity for IMCA members throughout the vast region to hear the latest on the work of IMCA alongside two technical presentations from guest speakers.
As Nick Hough, Technical Adviser IMCA explained:
“A brief update on IMCA’s work this year will be followed by details on the major review of the D 024 (DESIGN) document for saturation diving systems; a look at the Diving Supervisor CPD App; and IMCA Safety Flashes and the IOGP Life-Saving Rules. We also have guest speakers presenting on two exciting projects:
Fugro will talk abouttheir involvement in Seabed 2030 a collaborative project, launched at the United Nations Ocean Conference in 2017 which aims to bring together all available data to map the world ocean’s seafloor. This project supports sustainable use of the oceans, seas and marine resources and also highlights underwater geo-hazards, cable and pipeline routing, mineral extraction, oil and gas exploration and development, infrastructure construction and maintenance.
Heerema Marine Contractors will present on their proof of concept for the “Quad Lift”, successfully performed offshore heavy lifting operations in the Gulf of Mexico involving two different vessels, two dynamic positioning systems and four cranes – all working together for a single lift operation.
