Christos Kolliastas and Grégory Dudziak, specialists in wind energy, will be joined by fellow Mott MacDonald wind professionals on the cosultancy’s stand (stand number 7052) and will also provide papers. Christos’s paper is called: Project Finance – Technical Advisor Lessons from Past Deals while Grégory’s paper is titled: Accelerating the Deployment of Offshore Renewable Energy Technologies. Both Christos and Gregory will be available to discuss these papers at the event in more detail.
Christos will also be sitting on the Financing offshore wind in 2011 panel on the 15 March. This panel will look at the availability of non-recourse debt for the wind sector, in particular for the offshore sector. He said: “As European counties such as Belgium and Germany are leading the way in wind technology, this event is a great chance to promote our excellent track record in delivering technical advisory services in both lenders and owner’s engineering for both onshore and offshore wind projects.”
Mott MacDonald has a large and growing business in offshore wind, with proven expertise in all areas of project management and technical support covering project assessment, development and contract strategy as well as design, procurement and construction monitoring.
Major projects include acting as lender’s engineer to Belwind for a wind farm financed on a non‑recourse basis 50km off the Belgian coast and lender’s technical advisor for the Thornton Bank wind farm, situated 30km off the Belgian coastline.
The EWEA conference is the largest wind event in Europe and will this year feature over 200 high-profile speakers from the sector. Delegates will gain an insight into the major trends affecting the industry, as well as the full details of the latest major wind-related policies, projects and case studies.
