Awaiting them was a first-rate programme divided into the sections “Current and Future Offshore Energy Projects” and “Offshore Project Realisation”, followed by a workshop called “Make Business Offshore”. During the breaks, they took the opportunity to converse directly with the speakers, to deepen their understanding of the presentations and to network. The social high point of BOC 2015 was a VIP dinner on the first evening of the event at the Speicherboden, a former warehouse in Hamburg’s historic Speicherstadt.

Financing, insurance and the installation of offshore units are the most important topics for the realisation of any offshore project.
Therefore it is absolutely necessary to understand and integrate these topics at a very early stage and throughout the entire planning and engineering process of new projects.
In order to stay within budget and schedule, it is further of high significance to get suitable offshore vessels and assets for efficient, save and cost-effective transport and installation of offshore units.
