Hi all , Just a quick question . Does anyone know who has the contract for the wind farm off the coast off of North Wales ?

On 3rd December 2008, the Department of Energy and Climate Change granted consent to Npower Renewables, to build and operate the 750 megawatt (MW) Gwynt y Môr Offshore Wind Farm off the coast of North Wales.
However the project is being challenged by the local MP and by anti-wind farm group Save Our Scenery, no prizes for guessing the basis of their objection. Short sighted Muppets!!!!!

Friends of the Earth Cymru, WWF Cymru and the Sustainable Energy Alliance (SEA) all support the plans saying “Gwynt y Môr should be built as it will generate a tenth of Wales' electricity consumption and prevent the emission of two million tonnes of carbon dioxide each year”.

The short sighted Muppets have 3 months to prepare a case for submission for judicial review. When their objections are laughed out of court (if it even gets that far) Npower say “Subject to positive planning decisions for the onshore works, and all relevant RWE approvals, onshore works could commence in the latter half of 2009 and offshore works could begin in 2011”.

Absolutely effingreps, I couldn't agree more. This short sighted cretins want to "save our scenery", whilst totally ignoring the big issue of "save our planet".
I work in this area and the newly proposed site is desperately needed, and some.
We cannot be held to ransom in this country for power from those that have it, we need to produce our own, wind or wave is an excellent resource that needs harnessing .
UK is leading the world now in wind farm technology and rightly so. If we surround the British Isles with wind farms we'll be totally self sufficient as we should be.

Reckon you should be calling them daily unless they say 'we've nothing for a week' then call them in five days. I'm regularly in touch with a number of agencies even though I use one main player. It gives me an opportunity to keep track of what's available and also helps them know when I'm good to go. Whether I'm offshore or on leave I keep on the ball and like to line up my next trip as far ahead as pos. I never agree to anything until the usual last minute just in case a better offer comes along. I think communication is the key in securing work. I appreciate your thinking about badgering them but I doubt they'd see it that way becasue as soon as they place you offshore you are earning money for them. Things are a little slow at the moment so I guess agencies are looking after their core guys. You could try companies direct, CTC use a lot of riggers, most agency but you never know. Anyways, good luck, I'm sure something will come along.

Hi..
i am planning setting up wind farms near the area i live and propose it to the local area as a better power source than what the local power company is providing.. where would i start ??


Aww dude, I don't even live in the UK and I know where to start... There's a couple of ROV guys ( in the UK) doing just that - selling squigglies to the grid of their choice... all I can say is Google it...
I got your economic downturn right here!!!
