Subsea equipment specialist Ashtead Technology put the spotlight on the latest subsea technology at its annual Technology Showcase event held yesterday in Aberdeenshire. The event welcomed more than 140 industry peers to highlight the latest tools, products and services from leading subsea manufacturers.
Ashtead welcomed to its purpose built facility in Westhill representatives from manufacturers such as iXblue, Kongsberg, Sonardyne and Teledyne Marine, who showcased their technologies and discussed how they are supporting the subsea industry in meeting the challenges of increasingly complex projects.
Allan Pirie, chief executive of Ashtead, said, “Our Technology Showcase highlights the latest subsea solutions and brings together like-minded industry peers to discuss how we can work together to ensure underwater projects are as cost efficient as possible.”
Nick Lawrence, director of EdgeTech, commented, “It’s a great event to present the latest technology to a targeted audience. Those who attend were already very knowledgeable about our offerings, so we were able to speak on a very technical level and look at how we can support their operations going forward.”
Martin Turgeon, general manager of TSC, added, “The Ashtead Technology Showcase is a fantastic event to connect with industry peers. It’s focused on specific subsea applications so it’s brilliant for companies like TSC to attend.”
