Partrac to Host Workshop at RenewableUK Wave & Tidal 2012
The Partrac Group will be hosting an official workshop at the RenewableUK Wave & Tidal 2012 Conference and Exhibition. The workshop, entitled ‘Unique Challenges of Site Characterisation in Wave & Tidal Projects’, will take place on 14th March 2012 at the EICC, Edinburgh, the day before the main conference takes place.
About the workshop:
Site characterisation is imperative when developing wave and tidal energy projects. Project managers must understand the types of site survey required for marine energy developments, manage risks and conform to data standards whilst delivering on project requirements.
This free workshop, sponsored by The Partrac Group, will act as a platform for project engineers, project developers, surveyors, consultants and device manufacturers to understand the constraints and respond to the demands of acquiring oceanographic, geosciences and environmental data in challenging and complex marine environments.
Representatives from a range of organisations will present on industry needs, best practice, national and international standards / guidance, and discuss the challenges of site characterisation. In addition there will be an interactive session at the end of the workshop for attendees to examine the site characterisation process and how it can be streamlined within the process of site development to reduce risk and provide timely data.
The Partrac Group will also be exhibiting at RenewableUK Wave & Tidal 2012 Conference and Exhibition in Edinburgh on 15th March 2012 at booth 20.
