Alun Roberts will be speaking at Informa’s Offshore Renewables – Wind conference on the offshore wind supply chain.

Five streams across two days in one venue, delivering fresh insight into the offshore renewables industry.

Bringing together key content from five pre-existing conferences, Offshore Renewables – Wind is a two day event will address new insight for the offshore wind industry bringing the whole supply chain into 1 event. Breakouts include:

  • Offshore Accommodation and Access Vessels
  • Construction, Installation, Heavy Lift & Transport
  • Subsea Power Cable Installation
  • Operations and Maintenance
  • Offshore Substations and Interconnectors

The world of offshore wind developments demands insightful conversations to be had with like-minded counterparts. More than 60% of the total delegate audience are made up of developers and contracters.

Alongside industry leading insight, networking features have been tailored to ensure your time is well spent. Highlights include:

  • Networking Lunches to meet new counterparts in the supply chain
  • Drinks Reception to extend networking into the evening and consolidate in new contacts
  • The Innovation Elevator Pitch where industry movers and shakers will pitch latest concepts against the clock

Following exciting offshore wind developments, new breakouts will bring exciting insight for renewed supply chain collaboration.

  • Political, market, financial and strategic insight
    • How will Brexit impact offshore wind development? What sources of finance are available to developers with lack of subsidies? Where are the new global opportunities for the offshore wind supply chain? Key questions will be addressed early on.
  • Construction, Installation, Heavy Lift & Transport
    • New information will be shared on renewed strategies for heavier loads and bigger demands from more challenging offshore wind farm construction and installation projects.
  • Operations & Maintenance
    • Outlining key trends for cost-efficient maintenance strategies. How are shipowners tackling blade corrosion and dealing with new challenges that further offshore distances are presenting?
  • Subsea Cable Installation
    • Presenting new methods to plan, trench, bury, install and maintain subsea cables. New insight will be presented from cable manufacturers on how developers can protect and maintain cable integrity.
  • Offshore Accommodation & Access
    • How will crew members be accommodated more comfortably offshore – fixed or floating solutions? Plus new guidelines on improved and safer ways to access the turbine.
  • Offshore Substations & Interconnectors
    • The connection between offshore and onshore is more important than ever with higher demands of renewable sources of energy. New substation designs and transformer concepts will be discussed.
