Registration open for Offshore Energy Exhibition & Conference

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 22 maggio 2015

amsterdamAmsterdam RAI the Netherlands 13 & 14 October 2015. This will take place on Monday the 12th of October, a day prior to OEEC, in the RAI Amsterdam. With the theme “Building an industry without borders” Offshore Wind 2015 hopes to not only break down the barriers in legislation, but also the mental barriers, discovering how people can promote the growth of the industry. Anyone registering for the Offshore WIND Conference receives automatic access to the Offshore Energy Exhibition.
A fascinating mix of business leaders, buyers, investors, engineers and other interested parties within the offshore energy sector will get the opportunity to meet each other in four large halls of the Amsterdam RAI, totaling an area of approximately 23,000 m².
Next to the exhibition more than 80 speakers, representing some of the biggest players in the offshore energy industry, will feature at the conference. With this year’s theme: Investing in the future of energy, the conference has all the ingredients for a leading international event covering all facets of the offshore energy industry.History teaches us that the oil, gas, and energy industry has always shown great resilience. Oil prices have rarely been stable for long periods of time, and it is remarkable how the industry has maintained its ability to adapt to changes and developments. The Offshore Energy Exhibition & Conference 2015 offers insight into these potential changes, tapping into and creating new ideas.One of the new and very current themes during Offshore Energy 2015 is Technical Data Management. In this session, lead by Michael Nord from Shell, we will discuss the effects of poor data quality and how improving data management can lead to reduced costs and better informed business decisions in the offshore oil and gas industry. We are also welcoming HPHT drilling for the first time. In a technical session the developments in high-pressure, high temperature drilling operations will be discussed. Operators are investing in this challenging new game which is generally seen as offering new potential.Because new and alternative energy sources could still lead to great corporate opportunities, they will again be explored in this year’s program. We specifically focus on the developments of marine energy and the extensive possibilities to produce substantial amounts of renewable energy.The program will be completed by interesting subjects as well intervention vessels best practices and new vessel designs, the role of technological innovation in new business models as part of cost reductions and export control in oil & gas. Moreover decommissioning and subsea processing are back on the agenda.Next to the Technical Sessions OEEC offers three special Keynotes where panels from the industry discuss human resources challenges, oil and gas financials and the industry as a whole. These Keynotes are free to attend.

Landscaping Ophelia

Posted by fidest press agency su martedì, 22 settembre 2009

Landscaping OpheliaLandscaping Ophelia1CACT Bellinzona_Centro d’Arte Contemporanea Ticino_Switzerland 26 September – 1 November 2009 Fri-Sat-Sun_2.00-6.00 p.m. (or by appointment) Vernissage_Saturday 26 September 2009 at 5.30 p.m. Landscaping Ophelia is the title of the thematic exhibition that VERONICA TANZI (1975) is holding at the Bellinzona location of the Centre of Contemporary Art in Canton Ticino. The topics that this Swiss artist has been developing for some time are linked unequivocally with the female figure and its many intimate facets: identity and gender, but also sentiment and suffering. She achieves this by revisiting an important icon of literature and theatre, Ophelia, the sixteenth-century female character who, as legend has it, committed suicide for unrequited love by drowning herself. Ophelia is an important hinge character, who was transformed and transcended by the English playwright William Shakespeare in his intense tragedy Hamlet. The elements in that tale, which was an immediate popular success, with its highly symbolic value, have all been picked up here by the artist for an installation that stretches to occupy the five rooms at the CACT with works custom-produced for the exhibition, which the curator has applied in the exhibition design to suggest the topic’s dramatic and theatrical poetry. In the first room, three photographic images of Ophelia immersed/suspended naked in water, her body coldly lifeless, inserted between three monitors, standing for the journey within the cold immobility of the end, constitute the introduction to the exhibition. These few, bare elements are decisive for the narrative development that Veronica Tanzi wants to attribute to the entire exhibition, as water, death and lightness of weight give the whole story a density of fairy-tale and regressive suspense, of endless and playful love, of suffering and of the non-death of sentiment as a dimension of uniquely ecstatic experience beyond the limits set by existence.
