On the final day of Arendalsuka, close to 50 people came to listen to presentations from NHO, Kongsberg Seatex, Marintek, GCE NODE and GCE NODE companies Red Rock and Telenor Maritime.
The seminar focused on enabling technlogies and opportunities these provide for the development of next-generation vessels and offshore operations.
CEO Christoffer Jørgenvåg at Red Rock talked about autonomous operations combined with remote operations, while Tom Løwehr, Head of Offshore at Telenor Maritime, explained how a high capacity mobile network can contribute to more optimal use of supply vessels and the fleet along the Norwegian coast.
Marintek and Kongsberg Seatex informed about a project that aims to use Trondheim Fjord as a site for testing autonomous vessels.
Anne-Grete Ellingsen, CEO at GCE NODE, talked about digitalization, robotization and integrated operations as the way forward for the oil and gas industry.
“When we are able to share data and extract intelligent information from it, we will reduce time-to-market, increase flexibility, efficiency and safety and gain environmental benefits”, said Ellingsen.
