In the UK, we were major sponsors at Hazards 24, which took place in Edinburgh between the 7th and 9th of May. Our stand proved to be extrememly popular, with many delegates queuing for a chance to experience our QUARTS platform on the Oculus Rift. In fact, Judith Hackitt from the HSE was the first to wear the headset at the drinks reception on the Wednesday evening.
On the 8th of May, we presented a paper on the selection of viable wind farm sites during the 45th Annual Offshore Technology Conference in Houston. The paper offered a case study comparing three offshore wind farm sites based on their potential for energy and revenue generation. MMI performed multi-year energy time history analyses of potential wind farms off the Eastern Seaboard of the United States to determine the energy generation and revenue potential of each site based on local winds and energy pricing. Study results indicated that by using a planning level analysis procedure, wind farm designers and operators can make decisions based upon sound data when selecting the most viable offshore wind project sites.
The Offshore Technology Conference is the world’s largest event addressing the development of offshore resources in the fields of drilling, exploration, production, and environmental protection. The event brings together more than 100,000 industry leaders and professionals from around the world to participate in technical sessions, workshops, and networking events.
