OSIG 2014 Guidance Notes
A new OSIG publication, “Guidance Notes for the Planning and Execution of Geophysical and Geotechnical Ground Investigations for Offshore Renewable Energy Developments”, has been launched this week. The launch event was held on the evening of Monday 14 July, comprising of a brief introduction to OSIG and the work that it does by its Chairman, Andy Barwise (Gardline Geosciences). This was then followed by a presentation of the guidance notes by the Chairman of the OSIG sub-committee that produced the guidance notes – Mick Cook (MCL Consultancy).
The presentations were followed by a wine and finger buffet reception kindly sponsored by Lloyd’s Register.

Judith Patten, Member of the SUT’s Marine Renewable Energies Committee has been awarded an MBE “for services to renewable energy” in the recent Queen’s Birthday Honours List. Judith is known by almost everyone in the renewable energy sector and has worked tirelessly for this community over many years.
“Her hard work has driven the All-Energy, Aberdeen event from a small show when it began in 2001 to what has become the most significant renewable energy event in the UK. There is no person I know on this planet who deserves this award more than her” says Bob Allwood CE of the SUT.
Shortly after the announcement was made, the Marine Renewable Energies Committee of the SUT was due to meet. What better excuse than to start the meeting with a glass of Champagne!
