The Offshore Wind Energy Logistics 2011 Conference, taking place in the Grange City Hotel in London, from January 19-20, presents a perfect opportunity for the leading players of the offshore wind energy sector to learn how to successfully navigate the challenges presented by working further from shore, in deeper water, with bigger equipment and at an accelerated pace.


The latest developments in Vessel, Foundation and Turbine Technology, Environmental Conditions, Risk Management and Safety Policy are among the topics to be discussed at the two-day event.

The Offshore Wind Energy 2011 Conference presents an exquisite occasion for SGS Renewable Energy to showcase its wide portfolio of services for the renewable energy sector and meet potential business partners.

On January 19, 2011, Jale Cairney, Vice President Global Risk Management from SGS Industrial Services will give a speech on the Risk Management of Wind Farm Project Logistics, scheduled for 14.50.

Based on the extensive experience and competence of SGS in the Risk Management sector, Jale will focus on how unmanaged risk exposure puts a wind farm project at risk of not achieving Health, Safety and Environmental Management (HSE), cost, schedule and technical performance targets. Among the topics to be discussed will be risk identification, quantification, prioritization, mitigation and analysis as well as assessment of contingency requirements of project logistics. Furthermore, Jale Cairney will talk about the overall impact of Quantitative Risk Analysis (QRA) and Technical Risk Analysis (TRA) for project logistics as well as the importance of early identification and management of risks facilities to keep a project on track.

Visitors will be welcome to discuss any aspect of the SGS services for the renewable energy sector with SGS experts.

GreenFasten™ solar panel roof mount hardware, watertight, USA made

GreenFasten™ solar panel roof mount hardware, watertight, USA made

The GreenFasten™ - GF1 system utilizes the patented watertight technology EcoFasten Solar® is known for. The flashing is fit with our EPDM rubber bushing and when used with a compatible EcoFasten Solar compression bracket (milled with countersink), a watertight seal is created, which protects the integrity of the roof. Requiring just a single fastener (lag bolt or self-drilling), GreenFasten provides the fastest install in the industry and will not void roofing manufacturer's warranties. Backed by IAPMO certification, GreenFasten delivers a mounting solution for all new or existing (retrofit) composition shingle roofs, and is the most cost-effective solution available. Like all of the solar roof mount solutions in our line of products, GreenFasten is made in the USA using recycled materials.
