Wind Energy Update: Utilities and WTG OEM’s solve HSE issues

Share Article

In under two months the top utilities including DONG Energy and RWE Innogy and WTG OEM’s Vestas and Siemens will be solving offshore HSE issues at Wind Energy Update’s 2nd Annual Offshore Wind Health and Safety Summit 2012, 5-6th December in Copenhagen. This year there is a special focus on safety culture and how to integrate it into an organisation and offshore projects.

In a report of the offshore wind health and safety industry, where over 100 experts were surveyed, only 45% of them said that health and safety is the top priority for the offshore wind industry. On offshore projects, safety culture is considered the most challenging aspect. It appears that no one knows the right method to achieve safety culture in their organisation; this can be based on 50% of those surveyed who said that it can be achieved through all of the following; creating an integrated system, reducing contractual interfaces, sharing accident data between wind farms and employing a third party consultant.

To help companies in the offshore industry solve their health and safety challenges, including implementing safety culture, Wind Energy Update has put together the most senior level speaker line up in the conference space. At the Offshore Wind Health and Safety Summit, 5-6th December in Copenhagen, five utilities and four WTG OEM’s will be speaking over the two days. The speakers at the summit will include:

DONG Energy’s Offshore Construction HSE and Project manager, RWE Innogy’s Senior Manager HSSE & Quality, RES Offshore’s Group HSE Manager, Mainstream Renewables’s SHEQ Manager, Statoil’s HSE Manager Wind, Vestas’s HSE Specialist, GE Energy’s HSE Manager, Gamesa’s HSE Manager and Siemens’s Head of EHS and Director EHS.

Through their presentations, delegates will be provided with the information needed to help reduce incidents taking place on their offshore projects. Some of the world leading WTGs OEM’s and utilities will be in attendance, allowing delegates to save time, money and potentially lives through being able to meet, network and discuss their challenges; thereby maximising time out of the office. Over 40 company are already confirmed to attend this exciting event; including A2Sea, Seaway Heavy Lifting, REpower…

Use their insight for projects to help increase the safety of a team!
