UKSPILL at Spillex, Oceanology International 2014 - 13/03/2014


The launch of the Spillex Zone at Oceanology International 2014 this week was the result of the ongoing cooperation between the UK Spill Association (UKSpill) and Reed Exhibitions, Energy & Marine Group. This followed the successful co location of Interspill 2012, where UKSpill is a key element, with Oceanology International, both in 2006 and 2012.

The opportunity for development of Spillex, as an exhibition platform for the Spill industry, was to build on its synergies with Marine Science, which had been demonstrated at previous editions of Interspill held alongside Oceanology International.

At this initial event, UKSpill led with a pavilion, showcasing both member companies, Fosse Liquitrol, Wilton Biotechnologies and Opec together its EU project partners, Project Netmar, from Porto University in Portugal, and from the Kill Spill project, EPE from Greece and Ecots from Italy. In addition, another 20 UKSpill member and other companies, both from the UK and from across Europe, exhibited within Spillex Zone.

Roger Mabbott, Executive Director of UKSpill, said that this level of support for Spillex, as a new venture, was more than proof that this cooperation with Reed is both a success for its members and partners, and a base to develop in the future.
