OFFSHORE WIND CONNECTIONS 2017

OWC2017 is a 'must attend' event for all those interested in this growing market.

Offshore Wind Connections (OWC) 2017 will be the fifth Team Humber Marine Alliance (THMA) annual offshore conference. Attracting regional, national and international offshore wind delegates, the conference is on Thursday, May 4, at the Bridlington Spa, with a pre-conference networking supper with RenewableUK on 3 May.

UK and international thought leaders and key industry figures will discuss recent industry developments and the increasingly positive outlook for the future.

Wind farm developers, owners, industry trade bodies and companies along the length of the offshore wind supply chain will be attending. The focus of OWC2017 is on the Yorkshire and the Humber region, which is at the epicentre of the offshore wind industry, and where billions of pounds are being invested in offshore and onshore infrastructure.

Organised by Team Humber Marine Alliance (THMA) and supported by East Riding of Yorkshire Council, this is the perfect time and place to assess what our region has to offer. Three of the UK’s largest wind farms and 80 per cent of all North Sea offshore wind farms are on our doorstep, while 60 per cent of the entire European offshore wind project to be built by 2020 are within 12 hours vessel steaming time.

OWC2017 is devoted to delivering business intelligence by creating opportunities for knowledge sharing and business networking throughout the day.

Opportunity to attend the RenewableUK pre-conference networking reception on 3 May.

OWC2017 EVENT PROGRAMME

Thought leaders and key industry figures will discuss the latest developments in the industry including updates on key projects from developers, government organisations, manufacturers, port operators, marine support, vessel owners and operations and maintenance service providers.

The morning session with contributions from guest speakers will be followed in the afternoon by specialist panels on contemporary industry subjects.  The late afternoon event will see a further chance to network.

With views along the coast to the Westermost Rough Wind Farm, The Bridlington Spa is a very fitting setting for OWC 2017!

Honourable Jonathan F. Mitchell - Mayor of the City of New Bedford, Massachusetts, USA

Honourable Jonathan F. Mitchell - Mayor of the City of New Bedford, Massachusetts, USA

Taking office in January 2012, Jon Mitchell is New Bedford’s thirty-eighth mayor. In November 2013, he was the first sitting New Bedford mayor since 1866 not to be opposed for reelection. He was re-elected again in November 2015 by a decisive margin.

Jon has sought to re-establish New Bedford as one of the leading cities in the Northeast. Since he took office, New Bedford has moved aggressively to reform its school system, to modernise the Port of New Bedford, to solidify the downtown’s status as the cultural and economic centre of Southeastern Massachusetts, and to raise the quality of life of every neighbourhood. Under Jon’s leadership, New Bedford has emerged as a national leader in renewable energy, and has witnessed both its unemployment rate and its high school dropout rate plummet.

Jon attended Harvard College, where he funded his tuition with financial aid and by working in factories and warehouses back home during the summers. After graduating from Harvard with a degree in economics, Jon went to work in Washington, D.C., and remained there to attend law school at George Washington University. Upon graduation, Jon began work as a federal prosecutor in the United States Department of Justice, having been selected to the prestigious Attorney General’s Honor Program, one of only five attorneys out of over fifteen hundred applicants in the Department’s Criminal Division

Jon served six years in the Army National Guard. He is married to Ann Partridge, a breast cancer doctor and researcher at the Dana Farber Cancer Institute, where she founded and directs the Institute’s Program for Young Women with Breast Cancer. They are the proud parents of three daughters, Grace (14), Natalie (12) and Lauren (10).

In September 2016 the Massachusetts State Governor signed a Letter of Intent with DONG Energy, Deepwater Wind and OffshoreMW to lease the New Bedford Marine Commerce Terminal as a staging and deployment location for future wind projects. The agreement with the developers, who hold leases in the federally identified offshore wind energy development areas located 14 miles south of Martha’s Vineyard, builds upon the Commonwealth’s commitment to a diverse energy portfolio and position as a national leader in offshore wind, and will strengthen the state’s clean energy economy.
