Offshore Energy 2012 Kicks Off Today

Robert Kleiburg, Chief Operating Officer at Energy Research Centre of the Netherlands delivered a key note speech on Energy Transition – Business Opportunities in Offshore Energy.

While speaking on the ambitions the European Union has set for the 2050 he said that it will be very challenging to attain those goals, however natural gas is likely to play an important role in the energy transition. What is more, when it comes to business opportunities there is a great potential in renewable energy technologies, especially in the offshore sector.

66kV Offshore Wind 2015

The only networking event on 66kV array grids.

66kV Offshore Wind is a technical event for experts in the wind industry. The goal is to provide a clear path to commercial implementation of 66kV array grids. By exploring developer requirements, WTG capabilities and equipment certification, we hope to reduce both uncertainty and time to implementation for 66kV offshore wind.

The conference aims to:

  • Evaluate project requirements to select 66kV inter-arrays
  • Explore turbine requirements for use in 66kV systems
  • Review certification procedures for higher voltage equipment
  • Evaluate the technology and cost impacts on transformers, cables and switchgears
  • Understand the need for reactive power compensation in offshore substations
