SMi Reports: Ørsted, the largest energy company in Denmark and one of 17+ expert speakers at Benelux Infrastructure Forum 2018,plan offshore wind farm to power 1 million homes.
Denmark-based renewable energy company Ørsted has recently unveiled its plans for a sustainable energy solution that will power more than 1 million homes in the UK when completed.
The power company will be one of many industry-leading organisations speaking and presenting at the 17th annual Benelux Infrastructure Forum taking place 21st – 22nd November 2018 in Amsterdam (http://www.beneluxconf.com/prcom)
Ørsted is partnering with Belgium-based DEME Group, who will be employing their Innovation installation vessel to install 174 monopiles. The large support structures are essentially cylindrical steel tubes extending into the seabed, serving as anchors for the tower. DEME Group are also confirmed to attend this year’s event, along with European Investment Bank, DLA Piper, NWB Bank, Loyens & Loeff and many more.
As the monopiles are massive structures, the Innovation can only carry 4 at a time, one of the reasons why the project’s predicted completion date is 2020 and Ørsted hopes to make it fully operational by then.*
Ørsted will be bringing their expertise to this year’s 17th annual Benelux Infrastructure Forum in the form of Marie de Graaf, Head of Business Development, who will be presenting at this year’s two-day conference on “Supporting Green Energy Transition in the Benelux Region”.
Marie will be focusing on the topics of supplying renewable energy to the Netherlands: Borssele Wind Farms, securing continued financing for renewable energy projects, diversifying funding sources over time to minimise re-financing risk, allocating excess liquidity in subsidiaries to group parent, and achieving the 2025 goal: 11-12GW installed offshore capacity.
Marie has over 10 years’ experience in the Renewable Energy sector in project manager/financial advisor roles, focusing mainly on the development of wind energy projects. She has worked as project manager on various renewable energy projects, in charge of coordinating project teams and stakeholders, including banks, contractors and advisors, as well as various work streams on project level, such as financial structuring, commercial negotiations of project and finance contracts, and overall process management.
This year’s two-day conference will be the biggest yet, hosting an international gathering of industry leaders from international law firms, banks, investment funds, energy companies, investment, asset and fund managers, insurance companies, European Commission, and engineering consultancies.
Delegates are urged to book their place now to take advantage of an unmatched networking opportunity and meet with some of the biggest names in the industry.
