QUO VADIS


QUO VADIS CONFERENCE – A UNIQUE EVENT FOR THE INDUSTRY


Some 10 years ago we heard about the Quo Vadis conference and the work of Kevin Donovan and his team at Global Wind Alliance Supplies. This is a ‘by invitation only event’, has no cost involved and is limited to windfarm owners and O&M operators. The reasoning is quite clear – concerns can be raised, discussed and solutions sought for the good of the industry as a whole.


We were honoured to be invited to help with that focus and intent.


The conference has been a feature of this magazine since its inception way back in 2007 – this one being the 11th. We will continue to feature the Quo Vadis conference and focus on some of the companies who regularly attend this event in future editions.


QUO VADIS CONFERENCE Previous Quo Vadis venues have included Belfast, Northern Ireland; Leeds Castle in Kent, UK; Berlin followed by Hamburg both in Germany; Barcelona, Spain and last year Prague, in Czechoslovakia.


The conference has really grown over the years and takes on a very varied and international feel.


THE IDEAL VENUE


London was a very natural venue for such an important event being easily accessible to Europe and beyond. It also allowed access to a vast selection of restaurants/bars, historical buildings and places of interest.

interesting surroundings and facilities of the venues visited and London was no exception. The Copthorne Hotel in Kensington fitted the bill perfectly as our base and provider of the pre- event dinner.


We also enjoyed an organised boat trip along the Thames with commentary from a very enlightened and extremely humorous compere – you had to be there!


The attendance of Quo Vadis is free for invited guests and this was only possible because of the support of the sponsors and exhibitors who set up stands adjacent to the main conference.

QUO VADIS CONFERENCE AND SPEAKERS Welcome and introduction – Sigi Donovan, co-founder of Global Wind Alliance Supplies welcomed all present, explained why we were assembled then introduced the first speaker – Paul Sheldon, Technical Engineer at RWE who explained how to reduce main bearing failures in KW turbines.


Chairman – Clifford McSpadden, was our very able and active chairman, who started us off in the morning of the one day conference. Clifford not only made sure that the speakers were kept in line and on time, but also ensured the delegates were suitably enlivened by means of physical exercises at relevant times throughout the day – a must for any gathering of professionals who had previously enjoyed an evening of corporate hospitality!
