SGS to Attend RenewableUK Conference and Exhibition 2011


SGS, the world’s leading inspection, verification, testing, and certification company, is exhibiting for the third time at RenewableUK Conference and Exhibition 2011, being held in Manchester, UK.

For the duration of the event, running October 25-27, 2011, SGS’s team of experts will showcase the wide range of services it offers to the renewable energy industry at stand 230.

RenewableUK 2011, which takes place at the Manchester Central Convention Complex, is one of the leading annual renewable energy conferences and exhibitions. With over 300 companies from the wind, wave, and tidal energy sector to be on display at the exhibition, the event is the perfect meeting place for anyone interested in the development and latest trends of the renewable energy sector in the UK and worldwide.

The three-day conference and exhibition provides an exciting opportunity for SGS Industrial Services to showcase its wide portfolio of Renewable Energy services, and these include Risk Management, Quality, Health, Safety and Environmental (QHSE) Management, Condition Monitoring, Wind Turbine Blade Testing, and In-Service and End of Warranty Inspections. It is also a chance to meet potential business partners.

The key objective of the Risk Management services provided by SGS is to ensure that all possible wind farm risks are reduced and investments are secured throughout the entire wind farm project development.

Furthermore, through Quality, Health, Safety and Environmental (QHSE) Management, SGS optimizes the lifecycle revenue generated by a wind farm project, while assuring high quality and safe practices during the project’s realization phase.

A team of SGS’s experts will also present its Condition Monitoring services throughout the event. With Condition Monitoring, SGS regularly inspects and monitors the various components of a wind turbine during its operational lifetime to detect any deviations from the normal conditions as early as possible and prevent consequential damages.

Attendees of RenewableUK 2011 will also have a unique chance to learn more about Wind Turbine Blade Testing services, which aim to extend the lifecycle of wind rotor blades, minimize the risks of design flaws and manufacturing defects, and guarantee the reliability of wind farm structures.

In addition, SGS will demonstrate its In-Service and End of Warranty Inspections. With In-Service Inspection, SGS ensures that the condition of the wind farm is maintained over time and the wind farm will perform effectively and profitably during its lifetime.

SGS is eagerly looking forward to the RenewableUK 2011 and hopes to convince the attendees that its range of services and breadth of its expertise are practically unrivaled.
