EWEA Offshore to Highlight Safe Working Methods

MarineLink.com
Monday, November 04, 2013

Effective sharing of marine construction experience, safe methods of working and recommended practice for offshore installation will lie at the heart of presentation by Alan MacLeay at EWEA Offshore 2013 in the "Synergies with other maritime technologies" session on November 20 in the "Industrializing the supply chain" track.

The offshore wind energy industry does not exist in isolation, and learning from and integrating other maritime sector technologies and methodologies presents opportunities for mutual cooperation and is a vital step to increasing safety levels.

Alan MacLeay is currently the engineering director for renewables at Seaway Heavy Lifting and chairman of the International Marine Contractors Association (IMCA) Renewables Workgroup, and it is IMCA’s long record in helping marine contractors towards their “zero incidents” goal that he will be sharing with EWEA Offshore delegates.
