Preparation Begins for First-Ever Offshore Wind Energy Summit
In little over a month, the first-ever Offshore Wind Energy Summit with an exclusive focus on grids, foundations and installation technology will take place in Hamburg, the principal location for offshore wind in Europe.
More than 150 senior level wind industry executives – already comprised of 25 Utilities and 80 installation specialists – have begun to engage with one another in preparation for their arrival at Hamburg’s Intercontinental Hotel for the 4th Annual Offshore Wind Construction, Installation and Commissioning Conference (November 20-22, 2012).
Delegates are geared up to gain exclusive insight into the very latest industry methodologies to remove the uncertainty surrounding far shore wind construction. They will examine advanced installation solutions for cost & time efficient deep-water project delivery. Topics to be covered include the very latest updates with the offshore grid, foundation structures and their installation, cable installation, health and safety, far from shore logistics, contract management, and overall risk mitigation strategies.
With the uncertainty that surrounds the offshore grid, European Utilities and Independent Power Producers (IPPs) will have pay particular attention to their offshore strategies in an effort to lower CaPEX and ultimately drive profitability from the assets about to enter the construction phase. In response to this shift in the industry, manufacturers and other offshore specialists have started to offer valuable technologies and competitive packages for offshore wind farm installation that could help significantly increase an stakeholders return on investment (ROI). The question on the end of everyone’s tongue is what works, and where to find it.
“Wind Energy Update is proud to be the primary source of exclusive, industry demanded information surrounding offshore wind,” says Jon Harman, the Head of Renewable Industries from Wind Energy Update. “As an organisation, we understand how to drive both a company’s growth and profits, and we will strive to provide the audience with the targeted material and individuals that they need to achieve them.”
50Hertz Transmission GmbH, BARD Holding GmbH, C-Power N.V., DONG Energy, E.ON Climate & Renewables, EDF EN, EDP Renovaveis, Mainstream Renewable Power, RWE Innogy, RWE OLC, Shell, Statkraft Development, Tennet Offshore GmbH, Vattenfall Europe Windkraft GmbH are just a few of the European companies who will meet this November in Hamburg to discuss, debate and appraise the latest offshore strategies to reduce costs, optimise offshore operations, and improve overall ROI.
