Our survey says….

The biennial Oceanology International was held at the London Excel exhibition centre back in March 2014.

The exhibition encompasses a wide range of systems, technologies and processes relating to marine science and ocean technology.

The great benefit of holding such an event at Excel is that the Royal Victoria Dock provides at fantastic environment to allow exhibiting companies to bring a variety of vessels and systems for display on and under the water.

It is one thing to have photographs on a display stand but the impact is so much greater when you can physically go on board a survey vessel and see real-time demonstrations of the systems.

Due to the amount of space available in the Royal Docks the visiting vessels where not confined to just being moored alongside Excel but many of them undertook a variety of demonstration runs around the docks.

The 2014 event attracted a total of 13 vessels and during the 3 day event there were 148 vessel movements in the dock – a new record, according to the event organizers.

The event is such a success that the dates have already been booked for 2016 and hopefully it will bring another interesting collection of vessels to London’s Royal Docks.
