We look forward to welcoming readers of Marine Technology Reporter to Oceanology International (OI) being held March 11-13, 2014, at the ExCeL London Exhibition and Convention Centrre. OI is the biennial global forum where industry, academia and government share knowledge and connect with the marine technology and ocean science community, improving their strategies for measuring, exploiting, protecting and operating in the world’s oceans.
Established in 1969, OI features the world’s largest exhibition for marine science and technology, agenda-setting technical conferences, visiting vessels and waterside demonstrations, and networking opportunities. All are entirely free to attend: in 2012, 7,669 came from all over the globe to take advantage of what is on offer. The 2014 event is due to be the largest ever with the 520 exhibiting companies from over 35 countries taking an additional 10% more space than at the record-breaking 2012 event.

Marine Technology
Update in a Nutshell

Looking at the overall state-of-play within marine technology currently, and therefore what will be on show and talked about at OI 2014, conference chairman, Professor Ralph Rayner, explains: “In the wider world of technology we see an accelerating pace of change. We see the emergence of new materials, new sensor technologies, new computing capabilities, all of this is changing very rapidly, and these changes are influencing what’s happening in the world of marine technology.
“Perhaps the most significant technological change we’re seeing is the move from using conventional ships to unmanned vehicles. We’re seeing the emergence of many new unmanned vehicles and platforms made possible by novel new materials, novel power sources, and advances in computing.
“The growing use of UUVs is also driving developments in sensors. It’s driving the development of lower power sensors that will operate for longer durations with much higher degrees of reliability than has perhaps been required in the past.
 “With the increasing use of autonomous vehicles comes the need for better underwater communications, and better underwater positioning. As we move towards exploiting resources in ever more difficult parts of the ocean, in deeper water and in harsher environments these technologies come into their own in making this possible.
“Equally we have huge societal challenges, ocean acidification and changing climate, all of which demand the ability to make long-term observations of the world’s oceans on a reliable and cost-effective basis. The Oceanology International exhibition showcases all of these technologies and more. And it illustrates how they’re brought to bear on pressing societal needs and practical problems of working in the ocean environment.”

Expanded Conference Program
The areas highlighted by Professor Rayner are certainly also evident in the expanded OI conferences, which are largely divided into two parts: on one side are updates on areas of technology; and the other is dealing with areas of application of those exciting technologies.
Ocean science and technology lie at the very heart of OI 2014, with the conference program picking up on each major technology strand featured in the exhibition. As well as the traditional areas (ocean observing systems; hydrography and geophysics; and site investigation; and dealing with UUV development), there are two new conference programs this year: underwater positioning and metrology; and underwater communications. Then too there are conference programs dealing with operating in extreme environments, highly important as the oil and gas industry moves into ever-deeper waters and the Arctic; maritime security; and the rapidly growing marine renewables sector and its demands for technologies to support survey, installation and maintenance.
Another OI introduction is the concept of topical panel discussions looking at areas which are creating a growing demand for marine science and technology: aquaculture, ballast water and subsea mining have been chosen for this treatment this year.

More Features
This year’s OI features a new Innovation Zone, held in collaboration with the Oiltech Investment Network with the aim of connecting innovative technology providers with access to funding opportunities. Another new feature for 2014 is Spillex, which focuses on the prevention of, and response to, environmental incidents in the marine environment.
No Oceanology International is complete without its display of vessels and dockside demonstrations.
This year’s will be no exception with a growing list of both on the event’s website at The early list of vessels includes an oil spill response, survey vessels, both conventional and remotely controlled; a vessel with a deployable ROV on board; and an offshore wind farm support vessel.
The expanding program of associated events run by supporting organizations such as IMarEST and IMCA, and exhibitors on topics as varied as ‘Meet the Metocean Expert’, ‘ROV training – an international perspective’; ‘Fluid Mud in Ports and Navigation: Management Today and in the Future’ and ‘British-Dutch Round Table on Marine Monitoring and Surveying for Offshore Wind Energy Projects’.
