Jenny Marra MSP to host Dundee Decommissioning Summit
19 September 2016
Jenny Marra MSP is to host a Decommissioning summit in Dundee today with view to securing investment and jobs for the City.
The Dundee Decommissioning Event will be held at the Apex Hotel and will bring together key stakeholders in the decommissioning sector.
Representatives from industry, the public sector and trade unions will convene to see what needs to be done to secure this vital work for Dundee.
Speaking ahead of the summit, Jenny Marra MSP said:
“The City of Dundee is ideally placed to secure investment and jobs from oil & gas decommissioning.
"There is potentially £40billion of work in this industry over the next 25 years and we need to be on the front foot to capture this work for the City.
"Over the years we have been promised jobs which have not materialised.
“It’s time to take the initiative and I’m hoping the summit which I’ve organised will focus minds and so that we can get these key jobs to our City.”
