A new one day conference and networking event has been announced for the wind turbine erection and transport industry. Safety Issues in Wind Turbine Installation and Transportation will be on 14 March 2012 in Hamburg, Germany.

It is organised by the European Association of Abnormal Road Transport and Mobile Cranes (ESTA) in response to the high number of accidents involving mobile cranes during erection of wind turbines. The focus of the event will be on how to help minimise safety problems arising while erecting, maintaining and transporting wind turbines.

The ESTA Expert Summit is an exciting networking, business information and technical event for the leaders of the world's wind power industry, their suppliers and equipment manufacturers. It is supported by Europe's leading crane and transport equipment manufacturers, the FEM equipment manufacturers' association, and by wind turbine manufacturers.

Speakers will include leading professionals from the wind turbine manufacturing companies, specialists in lifting and transport, insurance companies and equipment manufacturers.

Venue is the Courtyard Marriott Hamburg Airport Hotel and the event will be hosted by former BBC newsman Peter Hobday, who many readers may know from the KHL Group's World Crane and Transport Summit event.

Tickets for the one day conference, networking functions, lunch, refreshments, delegate packs and dinner are available for Euro 250 +VAT from
