13:15-13:30

Surveillance environment – Airspace and infrastructure

Scene setting from a  European Perspective

   
13:45-15:00

Table discussion workshop 1

Surveillance environment – Airspace and infrastructure

Join a facilitated table discussion - ten participants per table

To meet energy targets the next generation of radar and surveillance solutions are required to enable the deployment of modern wind projects and their technologies in the 2020s and beyond.  The wind sector is working with stakeholders to resolve aviation radar objections with the identification and deployment of solutions that are sustainable, cost effective and future proofed for the modern environment.

Lighting and marking scene setter

Henrik Bendix Nielsen, Sales Manager, Terma A/S

11:00-12:15

Table discussion workshop 2

Lighting  and marking – The safety and environmental challenge

Join a facilitated table discussion - ten participants per table

As developers invest in new-build wind, plus repowering of projects, we will see turbine tip heights increase.  To ensure aviation is aware of these taller machines, industry is working with stakeholders to develop and maintain new policies and good practices to support the deployment of lighting technology solutions that are sustainable, cost effective and future proofed for the modern environment, including detection lighting systems.

13:30-13:40

UAS and helicopters scene setter

Rosanna Thomson, Aviation Directorate, Department for Transport

14:00-15:15

Table discussion workshop 3

UAS and helicopters

Join a facilitated table discussion - ten participants per table

The Wind sector is growing customer of aviation services and is keen to exploit the opportunities for helicopter operations and airborne UAS during the construction and O&M phases.  As the opportunity for these operations increases, next generation solutions should allow the industry to increase helicopter and UAS operations efficiently, effectively, and safely with new policies and good practices to support their deployment.

 15:30-16:00
