Following a visit by Scottish Enterprise, Scottish Development International and several energy companies to the Offshore Energy Exhibition and Conference (OEEC) last week in Rotterdam, Scottish businesses are reported to be cultivating links with Iranian companies in both oil and renewable energy.
The visitors met members of the Iranian pavilion at a special breakfast sponsored by the Aberdeen based decommissioning body Decom North Sea.
David Rennie (pictured), international sector head at Scottish Development International is quoted by CommonSpace as saying:
“Attending international exhibitions is all about new contacts and opening up new opportunities.
“Offshore energy gave us an opportunity to meet companies on the Iranian pavilion with a view to creating new opportunities for the future.”
