We staged a three-day Industry Awareness Event for all the Post-Doctoral Research Associates and PhD students, from all three institutions, in May, hosted by the University of Hull. Day 1 consisted of a series of seminars and presentations on topics such as: The need for offshore wind energy, The development process for an Offshore Wind Farm, A typical offshore wind farm, the operation of an offshore wind turbine, Offshore wind as part of the energy system, and the Industry Perspectives and Challenges.
Day 2 included visits to the Siemens Gamesa blade factory and their training centre in Hull and on Day 3 the group visited the ├śrsted Operations and Maintenance Control Centre in Grimsby.
The event was an overwhelming success and proved very educational and interesting for the whole group. In addition, it was a great opportunity for the researchers and students to find out more about the work being done at the other institutions and to meet their project colleagues.
