Technology deployment course for offshore engineers

31 May 2016

The Society for Underwater Technology (SUT) has launched a new course enabling engineers to form a greater understanding of the deployment of new technology within offshore developments.

The one-day course, in association with Astrimar, is aimed at engineers of all levels who are involved in the deployment of new offshore technology or who need to accommodate existing technology in more challenging applications.

The course is also said to be suitable for operators, contractors, original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and technology developers.

The course will takes place on June 9 at London’s Imperial College, and aims to provide an overview of industry best practice for the qualification of technology and how to select and design appropriate testing regimes to demonstrate functionality, reliability and durability. The programme will be split into a combination of presentations, discussions and group break-out sessions, including:
• The Technology Qualification Process
• Use of Technology Readiness Levels (TRLs)
• Types of testing to support qualification at each TRL
• Qualification of extended/modified technology
• Application of FMECA for technology qualification
• Residual technical risk and uncertainty
• Qualification assurance

Commenting on the course, Dr Bob Allwood, CEO of SUT said: “As the subsea industry moves into deeper waters and more difficult operation environments, additional technical risk and uncertain reliability performance is introduced. A defined qualification process is required to manage the risk associated with the first or early deployment of the technology and this course will demonstrate this in a dynamic and interactive way, which will be of interest to all engineers working in the industry.”

The course will run from 9am to 5pm at the Imperial College, London and costs for £430 members and £530 for non-members. Contact
