The demand of OSV is increasing in line with the rise in offshore E&P activities across the world. OSV owners and operators are looking to upgrade their fleets with vessels fitted with sophisticated technology including DP system, propulsion system and enhancing their multi functionalities. Reflecting this trend, many Chinese yards are consolidating their toehold in the shipbuilding industry by building more OSVs for the oil and gas sector also in order to diversify their earnings, hoping to revive from the weak demand in both shipping and shipbuilding orders.
Topco is working in close cooperation with shipyards, ship owners, operators, financiers, suppliers and classification societies to launch OSV World 2013. To this world class event, we are bringing together key industry players, market analysts and researchers to provide the update on the market trend, challenges and new fabrication and marine rules for the OSV industry.
The 2013 edition of OSV World follows the footprint of the success of its debut event last year, when the organizer brought together 200 industry professionals, including oil and gas producers, designers, builders, OSV owners, operators, contractors, classification societies, equipment and legal/financial service suppliers.
Through a compelling mix of commercial and technical streams, workshops, round table discussions, case studies, industrial peers will not only gain crucial market insights at OSV World 2013 but share the best practice of cutting-edge design concept and fabrication technology. Unique speed networking and one to one meeting form will help to in-depth explore cooperative opportunities and establish business relationships.
