Offshore Wind Energy Health & Safety Summit Planned

Press Release
Friday, September 14, 2012

Offshore Wind Health and Safety Summit 2012 to consider how to ensure workers safety in this hazardous industry.

The European offshore wind industry is growing exponentially. In the first half of 2012 alone offshore wind power was up 50% on the previous year; 523.2 MW compared to 348.1 MW. EWEA predict that 2012 will be the best ever year for the industry. Along with this installed capacity, 13 offshore wind farms were in construction in the first half of this year.

This is great news for everyone in the industry, but the health and safety of those involved must be secured. With an increase in the construction and installation of wind farms, there will be an increase in those working offshore. When accessing the offshore wind turbines, being as safe and time efficient is imperative for all engineers going offsite. Until the decommissioning of the wind farms, which could be 20 years or more, health and safety must be kept at the front of the operator’s agenda. It must be put above energy production.

To ensure that all aspects of health and safety are considered by those working in the offshore wind industry, whether safety culture, access or training, Wind Energy Update, has put together their second annual Offshore Wind Health and Safety Summit taking place on the 5-6th December in Copenhagen, Denmark. The organizers have gathered the most experienced health and safety industry professionals to speak and collaborate on the most crucial safety issues affecting offshore wind right now.

The conference brochure is available here.
