SGS Participates in RenewableUK 2011 in Manchester, UK

SGS is participating in the RenewableUK Conference and Exhibition 2011 in Manchester, UK on October 25-27, 2011.

SGS, the world's leading inspection, verification, testing, and certification company, is attending the RenewableUK Conference and Exhibition 2011 in Manchester, UK on October 25-27, 2011. During the event, SGS experts will demonstrate the wide range of services it offers to the renewable energy industry at stand 230.


RenewableUK 2011, being held at the Manchester Central Convention Complex, is one of the leading annual renewable energy conferences and exhibitions and the perfect meeting place for anyone interested in the development and latest trends of the renewable energy sector in the UK and worldwide.

The three-day event presents an exciting opportunity for SGS Industrial Services to showcase its wide portfolio of Renewable Energy services, and these include Risk Management, Quality, Health, Safety and Environmental (QHSE) Management, Condition Monitoring, Wind Turbine Blade Testing, and In-Service and End of Warranty Inspections. It is also a chance to meet potential business partners.

With Risk Management, SGS ensures that all possible wind farm risks are reduced and investments are secured throughout the entire wind farm project development. Furthermore, through Quality, Health, Safety and Environmental (QHSE) Management, SGS optimizes the lifecycle revenue generated by a wind farm project, while assuring high quality and safe practices during the project's realization phase.

The key objective of Condition Monitoring is the regular inspection and monitoring of the various components of a wind turbine during its operational lifetime to detect any deviations from the normal conditions as early as possible and prevent consequential damages. Participants of RenewableUK 2011 will also have a unique chance to learn more about Wind Turbine Blade Testing services, which aim to extend the lifecycle of wind rotor blades, minimize the risks of design flaws and manufacturing defects, and guarantee the reliability of wind farm structures. In addition, SGS will demonstrate its In-Service and End of Warranty Inspections. With In-Service Inspection, SGS ensures that the condition of the wind farm is maintained over time and the wind farm will perform effectively and profitably during its lifetime.

SGS is eagerly looking forward to the RenewableUK 2011 and hopes to convince the attendees that its range of services and breadth of its expertise are practically unrivaled.

Featured Product

TRA SNOW AND SUN - SOLAR TILE MOUNT

TRA SNOW AND SUN - SOLAR TILE MOUNT

You haven't installed a tile mount that is easier to install than the Solar Tile Mount manufactured by TRA Snow and Sun. Solar Tile Mount is used on all tile roof profiles: flat, mid, and high. It is made in the USA of aluminum alloy for strength and excellent corrosion resistance. Solar Tile Mount is built to allow more ease in installation with more rise from the tile surface to the rail for better air flow below panels. The adjustable base is longer than most allowing attachment 6" to the left or right to have the bracket in the base of the pan of the tile and still fasten to the rafter. Solar Tile Mount is adjustable for counter batten systems from ¾" to 3". The horizontal rail is directly above base fasteners giving greater uplift resistance than any other system. For superior waterproofing apply TRA Snow and Sun's butyl backed VersaFlash aluminum flashing. No tile flashing is needed on top of the tile for greater labor and material cost savings.
