Officially the Best Green Business...

March 2014

Oldbaum Services were crowned Best Green Business at the Forth Valley Chamber of Commerce Business Awards last Thursday, March 13th.

It was an enjoyable evening of fine foods and probably the best cheesecake that has ever been devoured which involved popping candy, meringue, as well as flake-pieces!

The host was the not-so-conventional Forensic Mind Reader Colin Cloud who was a big hit with an approachable audience. His wit distracted onlookers when he didn't quite hit the nail right on the head!

Offshore Wind Power Potential of Gujarat to be discussed at weekend seminar in India

January 2014

Oldbaum’s Technical Director Andy Oldroyd is due to speak at a one-day international seminar in Gandhinagar this Saturday, February 1.

The seminar’s focus will be on the Offshore Wind Power Potential of Gujarat. Gandhinagar is the capital city of the state of Gujarat, located on the western coast of India. Equipped with 1600 km of coastline the area undeniably has great potential for offshore wind power projects. Andy’s invitation comes after Oldbaum previously published a report on Wind Power Potential in the southern province of Tamil Nadu which was recognised by the Indian Government in August last year.

The event, to be held at Pandit Deendayal Petroleum University, will include leading international players from the wind industry. Policy makers of State Government of Gujarat and the Government of India are also expected to participate and share their views on the long-term development of the sector. Company representatives, including Andy, will share their experiences on a wide range of topics related to successful implementation of offshore wind power projects. This seminar will witness deliberations on resource assessment, policies, issues and challenges facing development, design and economic viability of Offshore Wind Power and highlight the future potential of harnessing this renewable source of energy for Gujarat.

Looking ahead to the event Andy commented: “India is a very exciting opportunity and challenge for offshore wind. Cost of energy savings are key to successful market development and conferences such as this one organised by PDPU are vital for the open exchange of ideas and methodology.”

Kunal Lalwani, Director-Consulting of Pandit Deendayal Petroleum University said: “We expect to learn lessons from issues and challenges faced during implementation of offshore wind projects in Europe. Also, we would like to understand the wind resource measurement and risks and uncertainties associated with it.

“This forum will bring all stakeholders together where investors and policymakers will share their experiences. So we hope the knowledge-experts will add great value and PDPU would emerge as a knowledge hub in India for Offshore Wind related issues and challenges as a result of cross border research and knowledge sharing through this event.”
