  • Valve expo to be held in Abu Dhabi

    Businesses from the power generation, pharmaceutical, oil and gas, food and construction industries are being invited to attend an expo in Abu Dhabi in December. The conference is also open to a wide range of other industries, including the nuclear power sector, agriculture companies and water supply businesses.

    The annual Abu Dhabi expo, which is to be held at the National Exhibition Centre, is considered one of the world’s premier events for professionals in the valves, compressors, pipes and pumps sector.

    The event is predicted to attract approximately 7,000 professionals from more than ten different countries around the world, including the United Kingdom, the United States, Poland, China and Iraq.

    350 companies are expect to attend the popular event, which is held in collaboration with the UAE Contractors Association, Global Fair International and the Abu Dhabi Chamber of Commerce.

    The expo will feature world leaders from the valve industry sector and it provides an opportunity to learn from others’ expertise, and to hear about best practises. Moreover, the expo enables businesses to meet with potential new customers and investors, as well as giving a wider platform for businesses owners to promote their goods.

    In addition, the event will give visitors the chance to see the newest technologies, source new product lines, and the opportunity to meet with a targeted audience,

    Businesses planning to take part in the expo can send exhibits in ahead of the expo; they can be sent in via sea or freight. However, overseas exhibitors are urged to be careful if they are carrying goods as there might be customs fees imposed for doing this, and there are restrictions on carrying foodstuffs.

    In addition, anyone wishing to attend December’s event will need to start planning the visit in plenty of time as a visa might be required. Representatives that want to visit the event will also need to get an invitation from the organisers of the Pumps, Valves, Pipes and Compression Industrial Exhibition as this might help to assist with the visa process.

    The three day expo in Abu Dhabi will run from December 15- 17, 2015.  On Tuesday 15 and Wednesday 16th December the event will run from 10.00am through to 6.00pm, and on Thursday the event will run from 10.00am to 2.00pm.

    Last year’s event proved to be a huge success, attracting more than 6,000 people, and plans are already underway for the 2016 event.

  • Valve World Expo celebrate success of 2014 event

    Organisers of the Valve World Expo are celebrating the success of its most recent event. The third exhibition was held in Dusseldorf from the 2 - 4 December 2014; it attracted 665 exhibitors from around the world.

    Valve World Expo provided an opportunity for manufacturers to reach new markets and demonstrate the latest technologies from the valve and fittings industry. Manufacturers had the opportunity to exhibit the latest in valves, valve components, parts, compressors and engineering services.

    More than 12,000 visitors attended the event from 57 different countries. These figures are up nearly 20% on the last Expo, which was held in 2012. It attracted visitors from the UK, India, France and the Netherlands; the Asian and South American regions were also strongly represented.

    Commenting on the success of the event, Messe Düsseldorf GmbH Managing Director Joachim Schäfer said it was:

    “An excellent trade fair – not just because we yet again were able to significantly boost the number of exhibitors and space sold compared to prior events – we’ve further optimised the linkages between the expo and the conference. With marked visitor growth of about 19% to 12,500 trade fair guests, the Valve World Expo is emerging as an impressive factor in our portfolio of plant and machinery trade fairs”

    The Valve World Expo was aimed at manufacturers from the petrochemical, chemical, food, oil and gas industries, and the pharmaceutical, medical and power plant technology sectors. The majority of visitors were executives, however, the event also attracted a lot of interest from manufacturers, distributors and end users of the valves and fittings.

    Exhibitors at the event all responded positively to the latest Expo saying that it had enabled them to meet up with old customers and to establish links to new ones. Others said that the Expo enabled potential buyers to learn more about the products, and they were pleased about the networking opportunities the exhibition had given them.

    As well as attending the Expo, visitors had the opportunity to attend a conference to discuss the latest innovations and new technologies in the valve industry. The conference covered many topics including control valves, the importance of maintenance, new designs and a presentation of some of the latest application solutions. More than 400 delegates were in attendance at the conference, which was integrated into the Expo for the first time.

    The next event is scheduled for November to 29 2016; it will be the fourth bi-annual event.

  • Valve World Expo Open to Registration

    The bi-annual Valve World Expo is open for registration to exhibitors from around the world. The Valve world Expo 2016 is scheduled to be held in Düsseldorf Germany in November/December 2016, but businesses interested in exhibiting at the event can get their applications in now.

    Although the event is some way off, it is advised that businesses intending to exhibit at the Expo prepare for it in plenty of time as there are a lot of things to consider such as transporting goods to the venue and arranging suitable accommodation.

    Exhibitors will also need to plan ahead as they need to ensure they have all of the necessary passes that will be required, and trade visitors are required to register in advance.

    The popular event is an opportunity for exhibitors in the gas, electricity, chemical, pharmaceutical, power and food & drink industries to demonstrate and view the latest technology in the valve, pump and compressor sector.

    The Expo also attracts businesses from a range of other industries including the aerospace, automotive, waste water management, pulp and paper and ship building sectors, among others.

    2016’s expo will provide a way of helping businesses to find a new audience for their products and it will give attendees the opportunity to find out about the latest developments in the valve industry.

  • Wind energy power reaches record levels

    Britain’s dependence on wind power is growing from strength to strength, according to figures recently issued by the National Grid.

    The statistics, which have been detailed on the Renewable UK website, indicate that wind power reached record levels in the UK in 2015, and that 11% of the UK’s electricity was produced from onshore and offshore wind power sources last year. This is an increase from 9.5% in 2014.

    In December 2015, a new record was set when 17% of electrical power was supplied through wind power; December was also the month when a new weekly record was set, with 20% of electricity being provided by wind power.

    The quarterly records from October to December also saw a minor increase from 12% in 2014 to 13% in 2015. Moreover, the statistics show that 5.8% of the wind power came from onshore sources while 5.2% was from offshore.

    According to the figures, wind power is now supplying enough energy to fuel more than 8 million households in United Kingdom.

    Commenting on the new statistics, Dr Gordon Edge, director of policy for Renewable UK, said:

    “This is a great way to start the new year – the wind industry can be proud that it has shattered weekly, monthly, quarterly and annual generation records in 2015. This re-writes the record books. We’ve had a bumper harvest thanks to increased deployment and superb wind speeds.

    “It also demonstrates why the Government should continue to support wind energy, as we’re delivering on our commitment to keep Britain powered up. We can continue to increase the proportion of the nation’s electricity which we provide as we move away from fossil fuels to clean sources of power”.

    Wind power investment

    In further positive news for the renewable energy sector, Dong Energy, a leading company in the offshore wind sector, has announced plans for significant investment in this form of power in the coming years.

    UK Energy Policy

    The figures from the National Grid, and the announcement from Dong Energy, should be viewed as good news by the government as the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate change, Amber Rudd, recently made a speech regarding the changes to the UK’s energy policy.

    Despite the cuts in wind power subsidies, the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate change said that the government expected 10 gigawatts of wind power to be installed in the UK by 2020, however, Amber Rudd also made it clear that continued support for the wind power industry would be conditional and it was dependent on significant cost reductions.

  • Wind power could provide half of UK’s energy supply

    The CEO of DONG Energy, Henrik Poulsen, has stated that wind power could supply the majority of the UK’s energy supply in the future. In an article published in the Guardian, Poulsen noted the falling costs of renewable energy and new developments in technology, and says that offshore wind power could create more than half of the UK’s energy.

    DONG Energy has also issued a statement regarding the future of its gas and oil division. The company confirms that it is ‘reviewing strategic options’ regarding its £1.5 billion-pound gas and oil arm.

    The company released the statement following media speculation that the company was making plans to sell its gas and oil business. DONG Energy say that JP Morgan has been ‘engaged’ to carry out a ‘preliminary market assessment’ but the Danish-owned company makes it clear it has not yet decided if it will divest its gas and oil division.

    Support for Renewable Energy

    The comments come at a time when the use of renewable energy is growing from strength to strength. DONG Energy, who are a leader in renewable energy had a record breaking IPO this year, and In 2015, 11 per cent of the UK’s energy supply was produced through wind power, which is the highest figures yet according to Businessgreen.com

    In addition, public support for wind energy continues to grow. Figures from the Department for
    Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy indicate that record levels of people (71 per cent) are now in favour of wind power.

    RenewableUK’s Chief Executive, Hugh McNeal, said:

    “It’s great to see public support for onshore wind has reached its highest ever level, at an overwhelming 71%. Onshore wind is the cheapest form of new power generation available in Britain, so it makes sense to use it to keep people’s electricity bills as low as possible”.

    The Government continues to show its support for renewable energy with the announcement of the new Contracts for Difference auction, which will allow companies to bid for £290 million in renewable electricity contracts.

    Business and Energy Secretary Dick Clark also gave more details of government plans to phase out unabated coal-fired power stations over the next decade and replace them with greener forms of energy.

    The government says the investment in green energy is necessary to secure energy supply and reduce carbon emissions. It has pledged £730 million towards renewable energy projects over the next decade.

  • World’s largest wind farm to go ahead

    The world’s largest wind farm, which is being built by offshore wind power developer Dong Energy, is to progress following a final investment decision, it has been announced.

    Commenting on the news, Brent Cheshire of DONG Energy said:

    "This is a historic milestone for Hornsea Project One as we are now making a firm and final commitment to invest fully in the project.”

    The offshore wind farm will be built 120 kms off the Grimsby coast; it will have the capacity to produce 1.2 gigawatts, and the ability to provide power for more than 1 million homes.

    Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change, Amber Rudd, welcomed the news and stated:

    “Thanks to Government support the UK is the world leader in offshore wind energy and this success story is going from strength to strength. Dong Energy’s investment shows that we are open for business and is a vote of confidence in the UK and in our plan to tackle the legacy of under-investment and build an energy infrastructure fit for the 21st century.”

    Planning and Construction

    Nearly 10 years of planning have already gone into the project, and years of development work have been conducted. Once the site has been constructed, it will stretch more than 407 km, the windfarm will be powered by 7 megawatts turbines, and they’ll each measure 190 metres in height.

    UK company Siemens will be responsible for the production of the wind turbines, and it was announced in December 2015 that infrastructure firm Balfour Beatty will have responsibility for constructing the onshore substation.

    Balfour Beatty began work on the construction in January 2016; the £25 million project will include cabling work and local infrastructure to help ensure the project’s success.

    In addition, a high-voltage AC electricity will be built as part of the project; it will take 900 km of cables to enable the power to be fed to the National Grid.

    Job Creation

    The project is good news for employment figures in the North of England as it is estimated the project will create 2000 jobs during the construction phase, and a further 300 positions are expected to be created once the windfarm has been completed; the opening date is schedules for 2020.

    Future Plans

    Future plans from Dong Energy include a Hornsea Projects 2 and 3, which between them could produce an additional 3 gigawatts of power.

  • World’s largest windfarm gets government approval

    The world’s largest wind farm has been given government approval. The Business and Energy Secretary, Greg Clark, granted planning consent for the Hornsea Two offshore wind farm, which will be situated off the coast of Yorkshire.

    An application to gain consent for the building of the windfarm was made in January 2015. The development consent order was recently approved by the Energy Secretary and gives permission for all aspects of the project. Once complete, Hornsea Two will have more than 300 wind turbines and create 1800 MW of electricity

    Greg Clark said the project was “fundamental” to the government’s commitment to an affordable and secure energy system.

    Commenting on the announcement, Brent Cheshire, County Chairman for DONG Energy UK, stated:

    "Development consent for Hornsea Project Two is very welcome. We have already invested £6 billion in the UK, and Hornsea Project Two provides us with another exciting development opportunity in offshore wind.

     "Hornsea Project Two is a huge potential infrastructure project which could provide enough green energy to power 1.6 million UK homes. A project of this size will help in our efforts to continue reducing the cost of electricity from offshore wind and shows our commitment to investing in the UK."

    Hornsea One and Three

    Dong Energy has already secured the project rights for Hornsea One and for Hornsea Project Three.

    Hornsea One, which will have the capacity to fuel up to 1 million homes, is scheduled to be in use by 2020. Up to 240 wind turbines will make up the wind farm and construction began in 2016. In 2018, work is expected to start on the offshore construction.

    For Hornsea Three, Dong Energy expect to apply for planning consent in 2018 with construction work beginning some years after if it gets approval.

    When Hornsea Three is built, it will be the largest wind farm yet, with the capacity to power 2 million homes and producing 2.4 gigawatts of energy.

    DONG Energy’s commitment to green energy

    The Danish-based energy firm is already responsible for the operation of six wind farms in the United Kingdom. It has pledged billions in investment towards green energy in the UK and there are plans to build several more windfarms in the coming years.

    The North of England is set to benefit from £5.4 billion of investment into windfarms by 2019. This will result in four more windfarms for the North, including one at Burbo Bank and another in Barrow.
