Energise Confidence in the ‘Blue Economy’

The Subsea sector creates great opportunities across a wide variety of industries, generally recognised as the ‘blue economy’ (ie O&G, wind, wave, tidal, current, storage, mining, defence and aquaculture). The industry today is estimated to be £50 billion and by 2035 estimated to be £150 billion. This evening shall share the potential market opportunities, along with a case study and what enabling support facilities and organisations can assist in unlocking the market potential.
