IMCA is hosting a panel on sustainable contracting at Global Offshore Wind in London with guests from BP, GE Renewable Energy, and DEME Offshore, on Thursday 15 June at 1.15pm.
The panel discussion, which will be compered by IMCA CEO Iain Grainger, will take place on day two of the UK’s largest dedicated offshore wind event. Joining him on stage will be Hugo Bouvy (Deme Offshore), Richard Haydock (BP), and Richard Huxley (GE Renewable Energy).
Together the panel will discuss how the offshore and energy sectors can come together to collaboratively address the risk and cost challenges that offshore wind is facing around the world and builds on the recent IMCA campaign for fairer contracts in this space.
Iain Grainger, IMCA CEO, said: “I’m delighted to have convened this panel for what will be a timely discussion on solving the issues we face in offshore wind. While there are huge ambitions and expectations, we are simultaneously facing significant challenges across the supply chain. These will only be overcome if we come together as an industry to face these head-on.”
“Our panel – which brings together representatives from energy firms, developers, and contractors – is made up of experienced subject matter experts who are not shy of sharing their views. We hope for an engaged audience, with plenty of participation and debate, to help us push the agenda forward and I look forward to seeing you there.”
Earlier in the week, Iain Grainger will be presenting on the IMCA campaign for sustainable contracting in offshore wind to attendees at Seawork in Southampton, UK, on Tuesday 13 June 2023 at 3.30pm. The event is Europe’s largest on-water commercial marine and workboat exhibition.
Iain added: “It is an honour to be speaking at Seawork 2023, for what will be my first external speaking engagement as IMCA CEO and I’m looking forward to meeting members and the industry in Southampton next week.”
