Our front cover image is very atmospheric in its portrayal of what the weather can throw at us from time to time.

SPOTLIGHT ON THE HUMBER – REGIONAL FOCUS


The weather affects our industry more than anything, particularly offshore, and we have enlisted the help of WeatherNet to give us some information on how they can help the industry understand more and make their services known to our developers and contractors in planning construction, maintenance and operations.


Our first regional feature was on East Anglia which proved to be very successful. We hoped for something similar but the Humber area has eclipsed that and covers some 28 organisations/companies over 26 pages!


One can offer obvious answers as to why but to us the main reason was simply the energy and enthusiasm experienced by the many individuals and teams involved.


The interest from Siemens in the area, yet to be finalised, could be one factor however we feel that there was much more to it than that – just the nature of the people and their positive outlook coupled with a pride in the area is what we experienced more than anything else.


We hope you enjoy finding out more about the region and the people involved in this substantial feature.


WIND FARM FOUNDATIONS – THE UNSEEN NECESSITY


The subject of foundations and their importance came up quite by accident, as these things often do, when chatting at one of the conferences/exhibitions regarding the various issues affecting the industry, particularly offshore.


A gentleman, well respected by many in the industry walked up to me and said quite vehemently “I’ve seen nothing in your magazine which even remotely mentions the foundations on which wind farm structures sit. You may not see them but if they were not there you could forget about the entire industry.”


So following a discussion over a drink or two we can now boast an 8 page feature on the various options available from some of the leaders in the field and headed by The Concrete Centre, who have already set up an industry specific working group.
