SGS to Present its Services at the RenewableUK Offshore Wind 2010 Conference and Exhibition in Liverpool, United Kingdom

From June 29-30, 2010, SGS attends the RenewableUK Offshore Wind 2010 Conference and Exhibition in Liverpool, United Kingdom. At stand no. 85, SGS will present its wide portfolio of services for the wind energy sector, including Project Certification, Design Verification, Inspection, Testing, Quality, Health, Safety & Environmental (QHSE) Management and Risk Management.

From June 29-30, 2010, SGS Renewable Energy Services will be exhibiting at RenewableUK's (formerly known as British Wind Energy Association, BWEA) annual offshore wind energy event at the Arena & Convention Centre in Liverpool, United Kingdom at stand no. 85.


The UK is the world leader in offshore wind with more projects installed, being planned and under construction than any other country in the world. By 2020 at least 20,000MW of offshore wind is expected to be installed and operating in UK waters. There are currently 228 offshore wind turbines in UK waters, with an installed capacity of 688MW, and a further 1,407 under construction and approved, totaling 4,598MW. It is estimated that each MW of offshore wind could power around 640 homes.

Over 1,000 people will attend RenewableUK Offshore Wind 2010. SGS will present its wide portfolio of offshore wind energy services, including Project Certification, Design Verification, Inspection, Testing, Quality, Health, Safety & Environmental (QHSE) Management and Risk Management.

The key objective of Risk Management provided by SGS is to ensure that any possible wind farm risks are reduced and any investment is secured throughout the whole wind farm project development.

Through Quality, Health, Safety & Environmental (QHSE) Management, SGS Renewable Energy Services optimize the lifecycle revenue generated by any wind farm project, by assuring high quality and safe practice during the project's realization phase.

Moreover, SGS offers Project Certification which helps to minimize the technical project risk by providing independent and site-specific assessment and certification of wind farm projects as well as the inspection and testing of critical components such as wind turbine blades, gearboxes and towers.

SolarEdge Technologies - Solar Inverters, Power Optimizers and PV Monitoring

The SolarEdge PV inverter combines sophisticated digital control technology with efficient power conversion architecture to achieve superior solar power harvesting and best-in-class reliability. The fixed-voltage technology ensures the solar inverter is always working at its optimal input voltage over a wider range of string lengths and regardless of environmental conditions. A proprietary data monitoring receiver has been integrated into the inverter and aggregates the power optimizer performance data from each PV module. This data can be transmitted to the web and accessed via the SolarEdge Monitoring Portal for performance analysis, fault detection and troubleshooting of PV systems.
