Best Practice for managing Man-Made Structures on the Seafloor over their life-cycle, using an evidence - based approach.

Inconsistent in-situ management and removal decisions are made regarding man-made structures on the seafloor; with non-aligned and often subjective criteria being applied by different regulatory authorities, according to the age and application of a particular structure, the industrial sector to which it belongs and the governmental region in which it lies.

In an attempt to tease out and address the reasons why, the Marine Alliance for Science and Technology Scotland (MASTS) and the Society for Underwater Technology (SUT) are using the third Decommissioning and Wreck Removal Workshop to bring together engineers, scientists, insurers and financiers to:

  • Highlight the practical and commercial demands of dealing with legacy installations and wrecks;
  • Consider these in the same light as life extension of existing assets and the design of new ones;
  • Focus on the challenges of future materials and technologies, such as lightweight composites in comparison to steel...

...with the aim of establishing best practice for creating wealth from the North Sea, as a regional sea without artificial borders, using an evidence-based, lifecycle approach.

Four sessions will be held over two half days:

Current baseline knowledge & experience;
Enabling technology;
Measurement, Calibration and Quantification;
Future demands.
