IMCA seminar to focus on cranes

The International Marine Contractors Association (IMCA) will host its annual 'Lifting & Rigging Seminar - return to offshore cranes', in Amsterdam, on September 27, 2018.

The seminar, which will be held at the Novotel Hotel, will focus on all aspects of offshore cranes for a range of applications including subsea, wind energy, heavy lift and decommissioning. It will also look at the future of subsea lifting. 

Mark Ford, IMCA's technical manager, said: "The Lifting and Rigging seminar is a great way for delegates to get involved in discussions on issues affecting the industry. It's an opportunity to identify common issues and needs for offshore contractors, which can feed into future strategies and guidelines for improvements."
 
The seminar is aimed at subsea contractors, offshore crane designers/manufacturers, equipment suppliers, crane training and academic institutions. 

It will feature a combination of presentations and workshop sessions, with a focus on facilitating discussion between contractors, suppliers and research institutes.
 
TechnipFMC's David Cannell, chairman of the event, said: "We have a great agenda and important contributions from major industry contractors, operators and suppliers. 

"It's also an opportunity for delegates to hear about some of the latest technology and thinking on crane operations with presentations from top academic and training institutions."
