Wind Energy Update: One week until the offshore wind health and safety industry meet in Copenhagen

80 of the leading health and safety executives in offshore wind will be meeting in Copenhagen next week. At this year's Offshore Wind Health and Safety Summit top speakers from DONG Energy, Statoil, RWE Innogy, Siemens, Vestas and Gamesa and many more will share case studies and past experiences with an increased focus on safety culture, regulation harmonisation and construction. Don't miss out on the only health and safety event designed to reduce the frequency of incidents on offshore wind projects; we only have 20 passes left.

LONDON November 29, 2012


Next week over 80 of the most senior health and safety executives will be meeting in the Copenhagen Marriott Hotel in Denmark's capital for the Offshore Wind Health and Safety Summit. On the 5-6th December the who's who of the offshore wind health and safety industry will be discussing the biggest challenges facing the industry right now.

The two day conference has optimum networking activities for delegates to meet and get to know each other in an intimate and informal environment. We have arranged for networking coffee breaks, speed networking, a delegate dinner, networking drinks and round table discussions. These activities will enable delegates to discuss and solve their challenges as a collective.

Along with the networking opportunities, delegates are provided with an in-depth agenda filled with a high level speaker line up. The first day will open with presentations from leading utilities DONG Energy and RWE Innogy and then continue with discussions on industry regulations. The day will close with presentations from wind turbine OEM's Vestas and Siemens on sharing data, helicopter access and training options. The second day has an increased HSE focus on construction and operations, safety culture and risk management. Over the two days we have two excellent chairmen, Simon Joyston-Bechal of Pinsent Masons and Robin Stowell of Conversulting.

The conference has already attracted over 70 delegates including the HSE managers from: A2Sea, ABB, Bauer, LM Wind Power, MT Hojgaard, REpower, Seaway Heavy Lifting and Workfox B.V. These companies will get to meet with our exhibitor, SGS Renewable Energy, who provides independent verification, certification, inspection, testing, and supervision services for onshore and offshore wind farm projects.

With only 10 passes available until we sell out, make sure you register today to ensure that you are able to attend this pioneering health and safety event in the home of wind energy. Hear from DONG Energy, Statoil, RWE Innogy, Siemens, Vestas and Gamesa recieve all the information required to help reduce the frequency of HSE incidents on your offshore wind project

Dynapower - MAXIMIZE PRODUCTION AND REVENUES WITH SOLAR PLUS STORAGE

The addition of energy storage to an existing or new utility-scale PV installation allows system owners and operators the opportunity to capture additional revenues. Traditional storage plus solar applications have involved the coupling of independent storage and PV inverters at an AC bus or the use of multi-input hybrid inverters. An alternative approach - coupling energy storage to PV arrays with a DC-to-DC converter - can help maximize production and profits for existing and new utility-scale installations. DC-Coupled Utility-Scale Solar Plus Storage leads to higher round-trip efficiencies and lower cost of integration with existing PV arrays and at the same time, opens up new revenue streams not possible with traditional AC-coupled storage, including clipping recapture and low voltage harvesting, while being eligible for valuable tax incentives.
