Course Overview

Subsea Systems have been used since the 1940s in order to exploit valuable oil reserves in deep waters. Over the past few decades, the industry has seen rapid development and the complexity and capability of these systems is vast.  Subsea systems can now operate at depths of over 3000m in harsh conditions, so this highly specialised field requires particular engineering considerations and demands.

Course Objectives

This course has been designed to familiarise personnel and provide an understanding of subsea operations, providing an insight into the design, capability and limitations of subsea systems, equipment and procedures.

Course Content

Topics include:

–  Introduction to subsea construction operations
–  The subsea operating environment
–  The subsea vessel as a work platform
– Global navigation
– Subsea positioning systems
– Subsea survey
–  Subsea integrity
–  Subsea installations
–  Subsea Diving and ROV operations
–  Subsea Measurement
– Subsea system integration
– Inspection, repair and maintenance

Who Should Attend

This introductory course is aimed at any personnel who may already work in relation to the subsea sector, or are new to, or looking to enter the industry. It would also be of benefit to managers, engineers and support personnel, working in subsea construction, planning, maintenance or support,who need to be aware of current construction techniques and operational risks.

Course Leader

Alistair Birnie, EDB Professor of Subsea Engineering at the National University of Singapore, has 35 years experience in subsea and offshore engineering having graduated from Robert Gordon University, Aberdeen as a Chartered Engineer.  He is the Managing Director of Denmore Technolgies Ltd.
