FMC Technologies launching Subsea Optoelectronics Lab at GCU

GCU is hosting an Open Evening Lecture featuring keynote speaker Danny McStay, FMC Technologies, to launch the FMC Technologies Subsea Optoelectronics Laboratory at Glasgow Caledonian University (GCU).

The growing global demand for oil and gas is driving producers to increase the overall efficiency of the production process and to operate in more extreme conditions with minimal environmental impact. Optoelectronic technologies are seen as one of the key technologies in enabling the industry to meet these challenges. In this lecture, optoelectronic technologies developed over the last decade for applications ranging from heritage to pharmaceuticals will be described, along with examples of how they have been adapted to meet oil and gas industry requirements.

Tuesday 27th March
6pm – 7pm

Followed by cheese and wine evening, sponsored by FMC
