* Webcasting of Cork Region Events

The Engineers Ireland Cork Region Committee recognises that it may not be always possible to attend events in person. Therefore we attempt to webcast as many events as possible during the year.

Where events are webcast by the Cork Region they will generally be available to view LIVE on the dedicated Engineers Ireland (Cork Region) Webcast Channel.

This Channel can be accessed using this LINK while the event is in progress.

Selected previous Cork Region and other Engineers Ireland events can also be viewed on the Engineers Ireland YouTube channel using this LINK.

Upcoming Events:

Events are open to both Members and Non-Members of Engineers Ireland

 28/01/2020 CE Marking for Samll and Medium Size Structural Steel

TIME: 1900 (Tea/Coffee from 1830)

* Pat Enright - Head of Compliance at the Irish Association of Steel Fabricators

* Humberto Dos Santos, Lead Auditor at Omni Assured Certification

Since January 1st 2014, structural steelwork falls under the Construction Products Regulation (CPR), which means structural steel CE marking must be secured to show compliance with EN 1090-1 (the harmonised European standard that applies to structural metalwork). This presentation will outline the requirements of CE marking of Structural Steel in accordance with EN 1090-1 with a particular focus on small and medium scale structures.

 04/02/2020 Geotechnical Impacts of Offshore Wind Energy

Time: 7:00pm (Tea/Coffee from 6:30pm)

Event is Free to all. EVENT WILL BE WEBCAST LIVE

* Paul Doherty, Chartered Engineer is the Managing Director and founder of Gavin and Doherty Geosolutions (GDG),

Offshore wind energy is rapidly evolving, with technical advancements driving down costs on the international stage. In an Irish context, after several decades of inactivity, offshore wind is about to become a large-scale industry. Over the next decade, the 2019 climate action plan predicts at least 3.5GW of offshore development will be connected to the grid, which will primarily be fixed substructure projects in the Irish Sea off the east coast. The successful delivery of these projects will be reliant on robust consideration of the ground conditions.

This presentation will provide an overview of the key impacts that the ground conditions have on an offshore wind development. The geotechnical interfaces include: 1. early stage site selection; 2. offshore surveying; 3. foundation concept selection; 4. foundation detailed design; 5. cabling; and 6. installation engineering.

All of these topics will be discussed, with a focus on how the design methods have developed and improved in recent years, to facilitate optimisation of offshore geotechnics for wind farm projects.

 11/02/2020 Data Analytics and application in the Energy Sector
Joint Event with Electrical and Electronic Engineering Division

Speakers: Jennifer Jennings, ESB

Time: 7:00pm (Tea/Coffee from 6:30pm)

Event is FREE to all.

About this event:
Traditionally the Energy Sector had two main aims: the first to produce energy and the second to keep the lights on. However, today many challenges are reshaping the sector: rising generation costs couples with decarbonisation and changes in load patterns. This is also coupled with advances in digital technologies, such as Artificial Intelligence, GIS, Internet of Things and the cloud. This talk will discuss some of the drivers and challenges to the Energy Sector and the benefits of Data Analytics.
