Nov 30 2023

12:00 PM - 12:45 PM CST

The conventional day-rate business model for vessel operators that typically utilize subsea vehicles has experienced a transformative shift, completely changing considerations around cost and risk that existed with the mission completion. Smaller workboat platforms are now emerging as powerful contenders in mission completion operations. What specific technologies and innovations are driving this transformation? Should a vessel operator be in the business of delivering a mission service or as a mission service enabler?

Industry pioneers will share their experiences and success stories, showcasing how these advancements and changes have led to streamlined workflows and improved overall performance. Key topics to be explored include:

·        Identifying the catalysts and challenges associated with transitioning to a mission completion model

·        Analyzing successful case studies of boat companies that have already adopted this innovative approach.

·        Unveiling the latest communication technologies and their impact on mission completion effectiveness.

·        Outlining the market and industry changes that have impacted the shift of risk

·        Understanding the role of autonomy in enhancing workboat platforms’ capabilities and efficiency.

This conversation will outline the untapped potential of better collaborative efforts between vessel operators and subsea services providers, fostering greater efficiency and goal-oriented operations across the maritime industry.
