UK companies to showcase expertise in Brazil Since 2012, the UK and Brazil: Partners in Energy trade mission has allowed UK companies to showcase their technology and expertise and build relationships with the Brazilian energy industry. The mission, now in its seventh year, has been organised by the Department for International Trade (DIT) in partnership with Subsea UK, the Energy Industries Council and Scottish Development International. It has grown significantly with more than 250 guests in attendance last year. The purpose of the trade mission is to promote UK capabilities in the energy industry, enabling companies to share expertise and reinforce strategic partnerships with the Brazil energy sector.

Subsea UK will lead the subsea section of the event which will enable UK companies to meet with major organisations, including Petrobras, Subsea 7 and Equinor. During the three-day event, delegates will have the opportunity to present their products and capabilities on June 4 in Rio de Janeiro. In addition, networking sessions and various site visits with established Brazilian contractors will be arranged for delegates by the DIT team.

Flavia Silva, DIT Business Development Manager, Rio de Janerio, said:

DIT has a strong relationship with Subsea UK since their involvement with the first trade mission. The challenges facing the sector in Brazil are similar to those in the UK and therefore there is a wealth of knowledge and technology which can be shared between the two countries. This willingness to share expertise drives our relationship with the UK and Subsea UK.
