Global recognition on the line for winners of prestigious wind energy awards

Now is the perfect time to celebrate your hard work and success by nominating your organisation for the '2nd Wind O&M Dallas Awards' which form part of the 8th Annual Wind Operations & Maintenance Conference to be held in Dallas, Texas on April 11, 2016.

Following the success of last year's inaugural awards, we've added three additional exciting new categories.

Kerr Jeferies, Project Director of Wind Energy Update (organisers of the conference & awards), says: "Entering these awards is a great PR opportunity for any organisation. Even being shortlisted as a finalist enhances your business credibility."

"The Wind O&M Conference is the industry's largest and most influential conference and exhibition. It's attended by the decision makers from the key IPPs, Utilities, Investors, OEMs, ISPs, Consultancies and Specialist Service Providers making it the perfect opportunity for you to showcase what your company has achieved over the past year."

"Distinguishing yourself amongst peers and competitors can open new doors: you could retain and attract new customers or find new suppliers. Importantly, it also boosts employee morale and can help attract new talent."

This is what Marc Huyzer, Managing Director of Spares in Motion, says about winning an award in 2015: "That over 400 wind professionals from North America voted us ‘Best Industry Newcomer' was a great honor and generated plenty of positive reaction from wind turbine owners and operators worldwide.

"The award helped us spread the message about how we help buyers in the wind turbine sector find and select spare parts, component repairs, second-hand wind turbines and wind turbine services."
Why not think about how you stand out from the crowd and then put your company forward for one or more of the following award categories?

 Best Technological Innovation - 2015 Winner, Bachmann
 Best example of O&M - 2015 Winner, Upwind Solutions
 Wind Farm Owner of the Year - 2015 Winner, EDP Renewables
 Wind Turbine Manufacturer of the Year - 2015 Winner, Vestas

 Sub-Supplier of the Year (New for 2016!)
 Wind Farm Investor of the Year (New for 2016!)
 Exceptional Individual Achievement (New for 2016!)

The eventual Wind O&M Dallas Award finalists are selected by an impartial panel of industry experts. Then the winners of each category are chosen by a public vote in late-March. Winners will be announced at a Gala dinner on 11 April 2016 at the Westin Galleria in Dallas, Texas, where the summit is taking place.

"Winning an award demonstrates the hard work and dedication organisations commit to, to provide a successful, commercial, investable business models. In addition, it means guaranteed media attention with a unique opportunity to promote your products or services," explains Kerr.
2016 winners will be presented with a unique trophy and certificate by Principal Awards Hosts and Sponsors. Last year, great weight was thrown behind the value of an award due to the support of energy giant E.On Climate & Renewables NA, and premier training provider, Danish Wind Power Academy - who sponsor again for 2016.
