27 January | 13:00 - 16:00 | Tromsø | Open for all

The three Norwegian GCE-clusters organize a breakout session at Arctic Frontiers Business in Tromsø next week.

The breakout session will discuss cross-over technologies from the maritime and oil & gas sectors.

The Arctic seabed hides vast resources, however development of these resources will require a more cost-effective approach to technology. The distance from shore, the environmental challenges and need to lower the cost to develop and operate these projects, underline the necessity to develop reliable remote operations of the installations and equipment.

The competence and the technology that the companies in the Norwegian GCE clusters has developed as global suppliers to the oil and gas sector, can also be transferred to other sectors like offshore wind, subsea mining, and aquaculture.

The breakout session at Arctic Frontiers Business will focus on the initiatives and projects that the clusters are working on to enable the companies to increase their competitiveness in the global oil and gas markets, in addition to transfer technology and competence to new markets.
