The masterclass content will support the attendees to choose and design adapted mooring systems from a techno-economic standpoint, but also control the installation requirements and maintenance of these systems.

This event will be held online (Zoom) and in English.

The training will be held during two half-days, on the mornings of 30th June & 1st July 2021.
