SGS Exhibits at the EOW 2009 in Stockholm, Sweden

SGS Competence Center for Wind Energy is one of the exhibitors at the EOW - European Offshore Wind 2009 Conference and Exhibition in Stockholm, on September 14-16, 2009. Meet us at Stand no. B0921.

Meet SGS at the biggest European Offshore Wind Energy Conference and Exhibition organized by the European Wind Energy Association (EWEA). EOW 2009 will be held for the third time on September 14-16, 2009 in Stockholm, Sweden.


During this 3-day event SGS will present to the European audience its wind energy services, such as offshore wind farm project certification and condition monitoring. SGS will be exhibiting at Stand no. B0921.

Visitors will have the opportunity to watch the SGS Wind Energy experts´ live Oil Analysis Demonstration. Effective oil analysis helps identify lubrication-related failures; therefore, regular monitoring of the chemical and physical changes in a lubricant is essential to detect machine wear and provide early warning for potential failures. Oil analysis can effectively reduce maintenance costs and increase the reliability and availability of monitored equipment. Samples for oil analysis can be taken from a wind turbine gearbox, generator or hydraulic system.

In addition to the live demonstration SGS kindly invites you to the Happy Hour at 4:00 PM on Tuesday, September 15, 2009, where the SGS Wind Energy Expert Team will discuss topics such as the design, installation, commissioning and maintenance phases of offshore wind farm projects and the risks they entail, among others.

As the world's leading inspection, verification, testing and certification company, SGS is the preferred international partner for onshore and offshore wind farm projects. Our strength comes from our experienced staff that has the requisite technical expertise in wind technology.

SGS is committed to providing a fully comprehensive program for the Wind Energy Sector designed to meet the specific requirements of your company. Our aim is to achieve 100% success in helping you meet your own availability targets.

LG Solar Unveils NeON R with Enhanced Aesthetics and Energy Savings

The NeON R module features "Back Contact" cell technology delivering an entirely black panel that is aesthetically pleasing and energy efficient. The cell's seamless, surface blends perfectly into nearly all rooftop designs while the module's electrodes are positioned on the rear of the cell. Using LG's N-type cell structure, the panels produce 365W of energy, up to 7.3kWp, compared to 5.8kWp of the p-type cell. The module's new design minimizes LID, thereby delivering a longer lifespan and increased energy output.
