Subsea Controls 2023 follows up earlier years topics about controls and power distribution technologies enabling future developments in the energy industry. We will also include presentations from the new energy domain to bridge the subsea technology with innovation into new markets. Subsea technology has for decades provided robust, compact and energy efficient solutions to the Oil and Gas industry. Our professionals are enthusiastic about sharing experience and adapting to the future energy needs.
Do not miss the opportunity to meet, mingle, and discuss with key stakeholders and experts in the industry. The Subsea Control conference is the most relevant arena for social and professional networking. Knowledge and lessons learned are shared between the most influential subsea controls and power distribution experts in the world. You are invited to shape and ensure that this conference is a success.
With this year Subsea-conference, NFEA intend to support and strengthen this optimism. Traditionally, NFEA intends to be an arena for presenting competitive solutions covering the entire value chain from operators to product developers.
Welcome to Kristiansand for two days of exciting technological input! Allthoug: October 24th, that is the evening before the conference, you are welcome to join a Light Ice Breaker.
