The Society for Underwater Technology (SUT) is holding a 3-day in-person offshore wind renewable energy course to include presentations, a networking dinner and visits to key sites in the Newcastle area on 10-12 October 2023.
It is aimed at three distinct groups - professional non-engineers who would benefit from understanding the offshore wind energy industry; engineers and technical staff new to this sector or making the transition from another industry; and technical staff already working in offshore wind and who want to broaden their understanding of the sector. The three day Offshore Wind course will combine presentations and site visits and will be delivered by industry and academic experts drawn from MarineSpace, Partrac, Newcastle University, Pace Geotechnics, BP and Equinor, with an emphasis on the practical applications. Confirmed visits include Equinor’s Dogger Bank O&M Base on South Tyneside; the Offshore Renewable Energy (ORE) Catapult Blyth R&D Centre; and to SMD Newcastle. A CPD certificate will be issued following the course.
