The EWEA Annual Event 2011 (http://www.ewec2011.info/) is the premier international wind energy event to take place in Europe. With over 10,000 wind energy professionals from over sixty countries in attendance, it will be EWEA's largest ever annual conference. The exhibition will be held at the Brussels EXPO International Expocentre.

From March 14th-17th, 2011, SGS will showcase its services for the wind energy industry including Project Execution, Project Certification, and In-Service Inspection.

Wind Farm Project Certification services (http://www.sgs.com/wind-farm-project-certification?serviceId=10102523&lobId=5550) help to minimize the technical project risk in wind farm projects by providing independent and site-specific assessment and certification of wind farm projects, both onshore and offshore, as well as the inspection and testing of critical components such as rotor blades, gearboxes and towers.

Another relevant service for wind farm owners is Project Execution (http://www.sgs.com/project-execution-for-wind-energy-projects?serviceId=10177455&lobId=5550). With this service, SGS assists clients in the efficient development and finalization of their wind energy projects. Project Execution can generally be described as a combination of providing the client with Tender Support, Project Management and Owner's Representative Services.

Attendees will also have the chance to learn more about In-Service Inspection services (http://www.sgs.com/in-service-inspection?catId=10141241&lobId=5550&type=service). SGS has implemented a combination of high-end specialized consultancy with traditional inspection and testing services to assist clients in managing shutdowns and turnarounds as well as routine maintenance.
