Contractor selection and management defines European offshore wind leaders

Project managers, technical assessors and risk evaluation teams work hard in their roles at keeping costs under control and avoiding supplier contracts that could turn bad for both sides. The reasons are worth stating aloud; a bad contract decision could bankrupt the supplier, delay the project bui

With the energy cost per Mw for offshore wind estimated at around £140/MWh, according to a 2012 report published by The Crown Estate, it's vital not just for the industry at large, but for individual solution providers to align themselves correctly towards to common goal of reduced risk and long term wins.


Leading think tank Wind Energy Update conducted six surveys in 2012, researched and produced two widely regarded offshore wind construction business intelligence reports and now have brought together their learning's at their London based B2B conference. Offshore wind pre-contract supplier assessment, both the technical and financial options are revealed.

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.
