INTOG 2024 Reflections

INTOG 2024 Reflections

Last week’s INTOG 2024 event at the Ardoe House Hotel and Spa in Aberdeen was a great example of the innovation and progress in our industry.

The INTOG initiative is a testament to Scotland’s dedication to transitioning from traditional energy sources to more sustainable ones, showcasing groundbreaking projects and setting a benchmark for global renewable energy efforts.

It was superb seeing all of the offshore wind projects in the pipeline, particularly those aimed at reducing emissions from the oil and gas sectors. As my first post-COVID industry event, it was inspiring to see the enthusiasm and commitment from everyone involved.

INTOG 2024 focused on two pivotal types of projects:

1. IN – Small scale, innovative projects of less than 100MW.

2. TOG – Projects directly connected to oil and gas infrastructure to provide electricity and significantly reduce carbon emissions.

This event was masterfully MCed by Paul O’Brien, featuring insightful contributions from experts like Corentin THEPAUT and Mark Dixon, among others. Their discussions highlighted the critical role of innovative offshore wind solutions in achieving Scotland’s ambitious net zero emissions target by 2045.

Meet the Team: Introducing Debbie Collins

Sandaig Delighted to Announce New Apache Contract

Sandaig Engineering are hugely excited to have been awarded a multi-year contract extension from Apache North Sea managing all their QA/QC activities🙌

Nearly six years ago Apache was Sandaig’s first customer and the relationship is still going strong🤝

A lot has happened in the last six years. We have supported out customers in over 10 different countries, gained ISO9001 and SEQual qualification and while proudly an Oil and Gas company are well down the road to transition into renewables, especially offshore wind.

Thanks to everyone at Apache for taking a chance on us!!! See below for the last six years at Apache in numbers.

OEUK Share Fair 2024 Recap | Sandaig Engineering

OEUK Share Fair 2024 Recap | Sandaig Engineering

Reflecting on the OEUK Share Fair 2024, it was a landmark event for Sandaig Engineering, marking our first attendance since the onset of COVID-19.

The atmosphere this year was electric, charged with the energy of an industry at a pivotal moment of transition.

The event brilliantly highlighted the convergence of oil and gas with renewables, a promising indication of the future.

With an almost equal focus on traditional energy sources and emerging renewable technologies, the presentations, including those by notable companies like Spirit Energy on CCS and Ørsted on Offshore wind, were particularly enlightening.

The positivity was palpable, reinforcing the belief that Aberdeen indeed has a vital role in the energy transition.

It was a pleasure to reconnect with industry peers and forge new connections, proving the event to be an invaluable platform for collaboration and innovation.

A hearty shout-out to Offshore Energies UK and the North Sea Transition Authority for orchestrating such a forward-thinking event.

Here’s to many more successful Share Fairs and the bright future they herald for our industry.
