Alistair Parlett, High Voltage Systems Manager at Natural Power; Chris Veal, Managing Partner at Transmission Investment LLP and John Sinclair, Development Director - Power Transmission and Distribution at Balfour Beatty, will join Euan in hosting the workshop as part of the post-construction track in room 2 at 11.10hrs-11.45hrs on day one.
The workshop aims to:
• Promote an understanding of the practical considerations for preparing a control room to support OFTO projects, and the key responsibilities under transmission system codes and standards
• Review the challenges of up-skilling staff to deal with dynamic 24/7 HV operations and potential issues around alarm management
• Discuss what the requirements are for deployment of competent field staff and how the application of safety rules to OFTO projects can be optimised
• Review typical faults and recurrent issues
With over 12.6GW of operating offshore wind projects in Europe and around 63GW in total (including pipeline), Offshore Wind Europe brings together the leading project owners, most innovative developers and ambitious operators to discuss out how they will reach a sub €60/MWh continent, both reducing CAPEX pre-construction, and OPEX post-construction. The event brings together more than 40 expert speakers and features dedicated pre-construction and post-construction ‘tracks so that visitors can tailor their own agenda.
