Iain Harrison attended the Norwegian Oil Spill Control Association (NOSCA) Seminar in Bodø, Norway from 12-16 September. The seminar gathered together industry, oil companies and public institutions to improve the overall knowledge base of oil spill preparedness and response as well as to promote Norwegian oil spill technology and products. The seminar was attended by over 30 international delegates as well as individuals from NOSCA member organisations.
The overriding theme of the event was the discussion of response strategies allowing for a more cost effective response operation. The seminar involved a number of keynote presentations as well as equipment demonstrations and talks. A successful on-water and shoreline deployment exercise was conducted by NOFO (Norwegian Clean Seas Association for Operating Companies) on the final day.
