Marine Measurement Forum takes to the Energy Capital of Europe
Over forty years of experience in oil and gas operations has established Aberdeen as one of the most influential, innovative and proactive energy cities in the world. Several leading international companies are based in the city, which is widely recognised as the Energy Capital of Europe.
This innovative, experienced and resilient city is home to a unique concentration of around 900 marine and energy related businesses, agencies, government bodies and research institutes, hence rendering it a both meaningful and appropriate venue for hosting the 52nd edition of the Marine Measurement Forum (MMF).
The 51st Marine Measurement Forum
The Marine Measurement Forum (MMF) travelled to the industrious Eastern Docks of Southampton, UK for the 51st meeting which was held onboard the preserved steamship S.S. Shieldhall on 5th December 2012.
This unique historic venue was selected by the event host The Hydrographic Society UK (THSUK) who provide a forum for those involved in maritime activities related to the Hydrographic industry. In her ‘hay-day’ the Shieldhall, built in 1954, regularly carried treated sewage along the River Clyde to deposit sites at sea, while at the same time hosting many parties on her decks. The Shieldhall left the Clyde in 1971 after 21 years of service and relocated to Southampton Waters where she continued to work until 1985 when services were stopped due to rising fuel prices. Today she is the largest working steamship in Northern Europe and is now preserved by volunteers to hold events such as MMF51.
