Offshore Wind's Major Stakeholders Announce Key Growth Strategies

Offshore Wind's leadings Utilities, IPPs and Developers answered questions on their key areas of focus for the next 12 months in Wind Energy Update's first half offshore wind survey of 2014.

Revealing that 54% of the 162 senior executives from companies including DONG Energy, E.ON, Scottish Power Renewables, Vattenfall and other major stakeholders are putting major focus on construction of offshore wind for the next 12 months, the results highlight logistics management within construction as an area needing critical attention.


With EWEA estimating that by 2020 40GW of offshore wind will be producing 148TWh annually, industry analysts will agree that offshore wind is one of the most rapidly developing businesses in the energy market and as with any evolving industry the key stakeholders regularly update their processes and re-allocate their budgets to suit market needs. The survey pin points which teams are getting the biggest budgets and which areas within those teams are getting critical attention, exposing areas that the major buyers are looking to improve.

The results of the survey have been compiled into a document called ‘Key Growth Trends in Offshore Wind' and outline where Utilities, Independent Power Producers and Developers are placing budgets, awarding contracts and looking to the supply chain for innovation.

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.
