the ‘Company of the Year’ award went to TechnipFMC. This award recognises those companies committed to engaging local suppliers and staff, and engagement with the Australian subsea market.
During the course of the evening Marius Martens, Chairman of Subsea Energy Australia, impressed on the crowd the importance of promoting the Australian Subsea Industry locally and globally, as well as nurturing the future leaders of the industry.
“As an industry, we have a lot to be proud of; Australia has become the largest exporter of gas in the world, the majority of which is collected subsea, using infrastructure that our industry put there. However, we still need to get better at communicating this, both locally and internationally. This is why tonight is so very important.”, said Mr Martens.
