TTE Managing Director Steve Grant was among leading industry executives invited to discuss export in the energy sector with Minister of State for International Trade, Rt Hon Greg Hands MP.
Hosted by the Energy Industries Council at the Conrad London St James Hotel in Westminster, the round table event was attended by prominent companies including ABB Ltd, Amec Foster Wheeler, Siemens and SNC Lavalin UK Ltd.
Alongside the Minister was Campbell Kier from the Department of International Trade, who has more than 30 years’ experience in the oil & gas industry spending a large proportion of his career with Shell.
The discussion focused on the export of energy-related expertise and services, including TTE’s experience of training technicians from around the world, and establishing and operating training centres in countries including Azerbaijan, Dubai and Ghana.
Steve Grant said: “I was proud to be among the 12 representatives from industry to meet the Minister at the EIC event to talk about energy exports. The UK has an exceptional track-record for providing skills, products and services to international energy markets, which businesses like TTE are keen to maintain.
“In particular, UK skills are highly-respected by companies around the world and through our international operations we have supported the development of hundreds of technicians who make a valuable contribution to the sector.”
