In episode 6 of the Underwater Technology Podcast, SUT Fellow and long-standing Aberdeen member Tony Laing speaks about how we will accelerate economic growth in the emerging blue economy. He looks at the role of the National Subsea Research Initiative (NSRI, http://www.nsri.co.uk ), the maturity of emerging subsea technologies, the huge opportunities for the UK to be a major player in Blue Growth for the coming decade.
Tony looks at energy transition, marine autonomous systems, floating wind, reduction of carbon footprint, decommissioning, advanced materials, cyber security, obsolescence, defence requirements, evolution of new standards and much more - a helpful introduction to the challenges facing an industry sector entering a period of transition.
He says we don't know all the answers but we're learning fast and can help one another rise to the challenges that face us all.
