Centre of Excellence for the Offshore Sector

Offshore Technology Conference 2013

The Offshore Technology Conference (OTC) took place in the Reliant Center in Houston, USA from the 6th to the 9th May. Jaouad Bahaoui, Business Unit Manager Large Engines at Thermamax and Ronny Lasner, U.S. Operations Manager at Thermamax, Inc., took part in the event.

The OTC, which has taken place annually since 1969, is  the most important trade event in the world for Offshore Technology with particular emphasis on Exploration, Drilling Technology, Energy Production and Environmental Protection. „The OTC is an excellent way to get up to date on the latest developments and trends in the Offshore sector“, explained Jaouad Bahaoui. Energy experts from around the world come to Houston to exchange ideas on scientific and technical experience in the Offshore and environmental areas and to check out the latest innovations.
And the figures prove that the OTC has established itself worldwide as the leading specialist conference.  The event attracted 104,800 visitors this year, the most in 30 years and 17% more than last year.  As Ronny Lasner summed up Thermamax’s participation at OTC: „This show was a great opportunity  for us to get Thermamax technologies better recognized in the Offshore sector, to meet existing customers and to make new contacts“.
