Offshore wind energy chiefs unite for Grimsby event
By Grimsby Telegraph | Posted: 13 Mar 2018
TRADE body RenewableUK is joining with Offshore Renewable Energy Catapult to host a special event in Grimsby next week.
Entitled Building On Industry Success: How Are We Planning For The Future?, Orsted managing director Matthew Wright, Siemens Gamesa’s head of business development, Ray Thompson and Global Marine Service’s chief executive Ian Douglas, the parent company behind CWind, will give industry perspective from the private sector, with Hugh McNeal, chief executive of RenewableUK and Chris Hill, operational performance director at ORE hosting.
Offshore wind specialist at University of Hull, and host of ORE, David Wells, completes the line-up at Grimsby Institute on Wednesday, March 21.
It is the second in a series of nationwide events, and comes to a town where a quarter of the 6GW of installed capacity is operated from.
It will be the first public appointment in the town for Mr Wright since the physical work on the £10 million East Coast Hub in Grimsby’s Royal Dock began, with last week the town welcoming the first visit of the new generation of support operations vessel, the 81m Edda Passat.
