Speeddating was starting signal (in Danish and English)


The international event OWIB paves the way for new collaboration in the offshore wind sector.

Danish shipping company Niels Winther & Co. and their British colleagues Clarkson Port Services – a division of the listed Clarksons Plc. – have begun collaborating about supplying a new concept for the offshore wind sector in the UK. The concept is marketed internationally and involves a range of harbour-related activities, including agency, stevedoring and consultancy. The idea for the collaboration was fostered last year in November when the 2 companies met at the OWIB – a kind of speed dating event for the offshore wind sector.

The Offshore Wind International Business2Business event is an annual gathering of Danish and foreign suppliers and producers in the offshore wind sector. Here the businesses can meet and discuss opportunities for collaboration, present new products and generally encounter colleagues from a global industry. The event turned out to be the beginning of a close collaboration between Niels Winther & Co. and Clarksons Plc.

Manager, Renewables Morten Holmager from Offshore Center Danmark says:

“Niels Winther & Co. and Clarksons turned up for the international event OWIB and had a brief, informal meeting where they discussed how a new concept could be realized. Since then they’ve intensified their collaboration, and this story is the best example of what the OWIB aims to achieve: new contacts that result in new orders.”

OWIB will be on for the fifth time on November 9, and so far participants from 10 countries have decided to take part. Last year 640 meetings were held in one single day and, according to feedback from the participants, 2,200 contacts were made. This year an increased attendance will result in more than thousand meetings during one day..

Morten Holmager observes:

“The partnership between Niels Winther & Co. and Clarkson Plc. illustrates that the best way the offshore wind sector can make use of its competences is when it happens across borders. Different countries possess different competences and, through joining forces Niels Winther & Co. and Clarksons Plc can bring about a unique product that’ll obviously attract international attention.”

15-minute meeting
When you take part in OWIB, you receive a list of all other participants. You can then ask for a meeting with representatives from specific companies, energy companies or industry organizations. Offshore Center Danmark organizes the meetings so that as many people as possible will have the chance to talk to each other at 15-minute meetings.

As last year, the 2 wind turbine manufacturers Vestas and Siemens Wind Power, the energy companies DONG Energy and Vattenfall (both the Danish and the German division) will be present. In addition a wide range of Danish and foreign developers, turbine manufacturers and sub-suppliers will be present.

Registration
Registrations for OWIB 2011 must be made online no later than October 17.

Den danske shippingvirksomhed Niels Winther & Co. og deres engelske kolleger Clarkson Port Services, division i børsnoterede Clarksons Plc., har indledt et samarbejde om at udbyde et nyt koncept til havvindmølleindustrien i Storbritannien. Konceptet markedsføres internationalt og omfatter en række havne-relaterede aktiviteter, herunder agency, stevedoring og konsulentvirksomhed. Ideen til samarbejdet blev skabt sidste år i november, hvor de to virksomheder mødtes ved OWIB – en slags speeddating for havvindmølleindustrien.

Offshore Wind International Business2Business event er et årligt møde mellem danske og udenlandske leverandører og producenter i havvindmølleindustrien. Her kan branchens aktører mødes for at drøfte muligheden for samarbejde, præsentere nye produkter og i det hele tages mødes med kolleger fra en global branche. For Niels Winther & Co. og Clarksons Plc. blev det således også indledningen til at tæt samarbejde.

”Niels Winther & Co. og Clarksons deltog begge på den internationale event OWIB, hvor de under et kort, uformelt møde drøftede mulighederne for et nyt koncept. Siden har de intensiveret samarbejdet og historien er det bedste eksempel på formålet med OWIB – at knytte nye kontakter, der resulterer i nye ordrer”, fortæller Manager, renewables, Morten Holmager, Offshore Center Danmark.

9. november afholdes OWIB for 5. gang, og foreløbigt har deltagere fra 10 nationer meldt deres ankomst. Sidste år blev der i løbet af en dag anholdt 640 møder, og der blev ifølge deltagernes egne tilbagemeldinger skabt 2.200 kontakter. Deltagerantallet forventes i år at nå 200.

”Eksemplet med Niels Winther & Co. og Clarkons Plc. illustrerer udmærket, at havvindmølleindustrien bedst udnytter sine kompetencer på tværs af landegrænserne. Forskellige lande har forskellige kompetencer, og ved at slå kompetencerne sammen kan Niels Winther & Co. og Clarksons Plc skabe et unikt produkt, som ganske sikkert vil skabe opmærksomhed globalt”, siger Morten Holmager.

Møde på 15 minutter
Som deltager ved OWIB modtager man en liste over alle tilmeldte deltagere, og man kan så ønske et møde med repræsentanter fra konkrete virksomheder, energiselskaber eller brancheorganisationer, hvorefter Offshore Center Danmark sammensætter møderne, så flest muligt får talt med hinanden på korte møder af 15 minutters varighed.

Ligesom sidste år deltager de to vindmølleproducenter Vestas og Siemens Wind Power, energiselskaberne DONG Energy og Vattenfall (både den danske og tyske division) samt en lang række danske og udenlandske mølleproducenter og underleverandører.
