Attend the seventh Society for Underwater Technology (SUT) and Marine Alliance for Science and Technology for Scotland (MASTS) Decom and Wreck Removal Workshop, which will bring together international expertise from oil and gas decommissioning, marine salvage, renewables and marine science, to build a shared understanding and explore solutions within wreck removal and offshore decommissioning.
Connect, network and debate with a range of international scientists, engineers, salvors, operators, regulators, trade bodies, NGOs, insurers, lawyers, and other users of the sea, to consider topics using a holistic life cycle approach.
The agenda is now available, please click here
•Decom Updates - Explore and discuss the decom landscape, from global projects, including jacket reefing in Thailand, to opportunities and lessons learned from regulatory, industry and academic collaborations.
•Inputs and Impacts of Retaining or Removing Marine Infrastructure - Materials, energy and organisms can be introduced when structures are either left in place or removed during decom. Researchers and practitioners explore the impacts of energy (explosions, noise, vibrations), debris (litter/plastics) and alien species (colonising the structures).
•Simulation,Visualisation, Modelling and 'Accounting4' - Integrating the latest tools, methods and thinking to develop a consistent, cross-sector approach for assessing the Impact of Man-Made Materials, Objects, Structures and Substances (MMOSS) on the marine ecosystem.
•Reuse of Decommissioned Materials - Reuse or repurposing of decom materials is currently economically rather than socially driven. Explore the challenging route from social responsibility to daily mindset and activity.
