Industry professionals unite to discuss creative yet dependable approaches to drive down cost in Renewables
Pressure on costs in the offshore energy industry have recently prompted businesses to meet at Offshore Energy the fastest growing gathering of industry professionals in Europe.
7,500 visitors representing forty five nations attended the event in Amsterdam to discuss viable solutions for the future projects in particular in the North and Baltic Sea. LKAB Minerals guaranteed its presence with a captivating stand and a portfolio of mineral solutions with some providing more weight, less volume for concrete gravity bases and loose ballast.
LKAB Minerals representatives from our offshore team were on hand to promote and provide technical information about MagnaDense, a high density and inert aggregate, mined from our own resources in the north of Sweden. MagnaDense can be used either to increase the density of concrete or as loose ballast. Whilst illustrating the benefits of MagnaDense's characteristics for applications such as pipecoating, SPARS and gravity bases for wind and tidal devices, our experienced sales and technical team used the event as a platform to meet new customers as well as strengthening our relations with existing partners.
The annual exhibition and conference offered a mix of insightful presentations and engaging discussions addressing the pertinent issues and challenges in renewable energy. With continuous pressure being put on the industry to get the cost down, LKAB Minerals is at the heart of activity by taking part in material trials within the supply chain to exploit MagaDense's 'More Weight, Less Volume' trait in relation to overall costs of production, procurement and maintenance.
Already LKAB Minerals are preparing for the seventh edition of Offshore Energy Exhibition & Conference on 28 & 29 October 2014 in Amsterdam RAI.
