Speaker Kyrone Dodd, Head of Operations, Tamar Energy gives his thoughts on the future of operational performance
“Operational performance will be pivotal over the next five years as the UK AD sector matures, we simply cannot underestimate its importance when energy generation and revenue is at stake. Operational performance underpins the economic viability of projects, confidence in the sector’s health and safety record, the quality of outputs and the professionalisation of standards across the industry. This is not a straightforward task: there is a complex set of interrelated variables that define operational efficiency, and a process-led, comprehensive approach to proactive problem-solving, preventative action and continuous monitoring is the only way to maximise performance.”
