Site visit and Presentations


The pace of change in the supply chain industry is considerable. Digitalisation, automation, sustainability, electrification, and social developments around inclusion, safety and wellbeing, training and education, are all trends that supply chain companies are needing to respond to.

The CILT environment and sustainability forum have partnered with Wincanton to stage an innovation event that will look at some of these themes with an emphasis on sustainability, using the resources of the Wincanton innovation centre to illustrate some real case studies and some imagined scenarios that may be thought provoking.

The event is aimed at supply chain professionals interested in innovation and sustainability and the future of our industry. 

NOTE - For reasons of competitive sensitivity attendees from business development functions other than Wincanton are not permitted. The delegate list will therefore be vetted by the hosts.

Rural Policy Group


As an Institute that focuses on transport and logistics we know that reaching more remote places is as important as helping to reduce congestion in the hugely busy spaces.  We also know that there are challenges in achieving a great level of service for rural areas that is efficient and supports sustainable transport facilities which truly meet specific local requirements.

Whether its developing sustainable bus routes or making sure rural business can reach their customers, many colleagues are grappling with developing solutions that meet the real needs of rural communities.  The aim of this session is to bring different groups together to discuss some of these shared challenges, focusing on the solutions that will help shape the future rural transport agenda.  

The session includes speakers from CILT’s Rural Policy Group as well as Sharon Payne from Transport East and Callum Reddington from Transport for the North, two of the prominent subnational transport bodies who are putting effort into better understanding how to support rural areas.  The session will also allow for time to discuss some of the solutions organisations are working on to help step up to the challenges.

The session will be held on line on 14th March 8:30  - 10:00  https://us02web.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZMtcO2pqD4vHNaUOCr-E_AnNNqVcRF2r2te and we are really hoping for a wide range of attendees so we can have some lively and productive discussion.

Revolutionising Construction: The Power of Offsite Build: Opportunities in Supply Chain Operations and TransportationBook Now
Start Date:19/03/2024 18:00:00
End Date:19/03/2024 19:30:00
Event Code:LR0428
Description:


When
: 19th March 2023, 18.00 - 19.30
Where: Zoom Webinar
Speaker: Evette Prout and David Emery

Up until recently, offsite build accounted for just 2% of the construction market, but the sector is rapidly expanding. Offsite construction is proven to embrace sustainability, cost-efficiency, adaptability, customisable designs, and reduce site disruption.

The talk will host 2 speakers who will shed light on the critical challenges faced by the 'traditional' construction industry and the benefits of Modern Methods of Construction (MMC), particularly Offsite Construction. There will be ample time for Q&A in this exciting new area.

For the CILT community, the development of offsite will create opportunities in transportation and logistics lean-based manufacturing, and operational excellence.

About the Speakers:

David Emery, from the Supply Chain Sustainability School, leads the development and delivery of training materials on Digital Construction, MMC (Modern Methods of Construction), and Offsite while guiding the School’s Wales Leadership Group. With a background in architectural technology, he boasts extensive experience as a BIM manager on pioneering 5D BIM projects in the UK and has contributed to numerous volumetric modular projects as a designer. Over the past two decades, he has presented at various workshops and industry events on BIM, DfMA, and offsite construction. His collaboration with the School over several years led to his full-time commitment to the team in 2021

Evette Prout works with Passivhaus specialist Beattie Passive, one of the UK’s leading offsite manufacturers of energy efficient, low carbon and net zero housing, which builds homes in its Norwich Housebuilding Factory. A certified Passivhaus consultant and a Chartered Institute of Housing Practitioner, Evette also has in-depth experience in the area of Modern Methods of Construction (MMC) and is dedicated to promoting sustainable design and building practices. Evette will be talking about the merits of MMC and explaining how the Beattie Passive system delivers MMC (and Passivhaus) to speed up construction, reduce site disruption and carbon emissions, whilst also raising building standards. She will particularly focus on how Beattie Passive harnesses its manufacturing supply-chain and logistics to deliver a high-quality product to clients quickly.

Where: Greyfriar, 53, Greyfriars Road, Reading RG1 1PA 
Speaker: Steve Harpum, Ex Deputy Director, Supply Chain at Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust & former senior RAF Logistics Officer



The Thames Valley Group are delighted to have secured a presentation from Steve Harpum, who has recently stepped down as Deputy Director, Supply Chain at Oxford University Hospitals (OUH) NHS Foundation Trust.



After a full career as a logistics officer in the RAF, and time spent as a management trainer in the Middle East, Steve joined OUH in the summer of 2019 … just in time for the start of the pandemic in early 2020.  He is a highly experienced senior logistics and supply chain leader and manager, but starting a pandemic response logistics operation from scratch was a challenge like no other, but one he is proud to say that he and his team rose to.



Steve will share some of the highs (and lows) of his experience, reflect a little on his career transition and how he was able to bring his previous experience to bear in the NHS, and some of the things he has learned along the way, both professionally and personally.



As usual with Thames Valley Group events, afterwards attendees are warmly invited to continue the evening with informal discussion and networking at the pub opposite the venue.

A visit to Reading HydroBook Now
Start Date:17/04/2024 18:15:00
End Date:17/04/2024 20:00:00
Event Code:TVG0446
Description:

 

When: 17 April 2024, 18:15 - 20:00
Where:  On View Island, overlooking the turbine house - View Island, Caversham Weir, Reading, Berkshire, RG1 8BP. OS grid reference SU720741. 
Speaker: Emma Wells and Rupert Wilson, Volunteers at Reading Hydro

The Thames Valley Group are delighted to have secured a visit to Reading Hydro.

 

The Hydro is on the River Thames, which is part of the longest river in England, it has 45 locks, is home to over 25 species of fish, boasts three areas of outstanding natural beauty and it’s the only river in Europe to have a national trail follow its entire length. Originally used for transporting goods by river and links to the Kennet & Avon canal. In recent years the river in Reading is used for growing recreational uses & schemes such as Reading Hydro are an example of how we are using sustainability to provide energy solutions.



Reading Hydro is a Community Benefit Society, a not-for-profit business. It was set up to design, finance, build and operate a hydropower scheme that generates renewable, low-carbon electricity from the power of the River Thames.

The scheme is beside Caversham weir in Reading. It generates electricity using two Archimedes screw turbines connected via gearboxes to electrical generators. Construction started in Autumn 2020, and the scheme was completed and commissioned in 2021. Electricity generation started in September 2021.



COMMUNITY
We are a community of people who share a common purpose – to create a locally-owned community asset, and generate renewable electricity to help tackle the climate crisis and ensure a more sustainable future for the people of Reading. When restrictions allow, we meet as members, volunteer our expertise and participate in local events to spread the word on clean, sustainable energy.

BUSINESS
Reading Hydro CBS is a cooperative business. We raised investment through community share offers. We earn income by selling the renewable electricity generated from the hydro scheme, and also from the feed-in-tariff (FIT). This will cover our operating costs, provide a modest return to investors, and gradually pay back their investment. As a Community Benefit Society, any surplus will then be paid back to the community in the form of grants.

TECHNOLOGY
We are a technology- and science-led society, supported by experts in a range of construction, power generation and sustainability fields. We provide open access data on the system performance, river flow and conditions.

EDUCATION
Reading Hydro wants to use our system to promote and share the benefits of renewable energy with the local community. We will be creating online education tools about hydro power and will host visits of local schools and others, for talks about clean energy, reducing greenhouse gas emissions and environmental conservation.

**Please note that this visit is limited to 16 visitors**

What the visit covers 
The visit can cover all the topics below - let us know if you have particular interests.
1. How Reading Hydro came into being, and how the hydro project was planned, financed and constructed
2. How the hydro turbines and electricity generation system work, estimated output, current performance as shown by live data on our website.
3. The cable to Thames Lido: why it was needed and how it was laid.
4. How Reading Hydro operates and maintains the hydro plant
5. The fish pass, why it was required, how it works, how it was constructed.
6. The murals on the turbine house.
7. Some aspects of the history and ecology of View Island.

**For safety and insurance reasons, groups are not allowed in the turbine house, but your hosts will explain what goes on inside, and there is a video on our website**

Health and safety:
You make this visit at your own risk. You are not covered by Reading Hydro’s public liability insurance, because you will walk only on public land (owned by Reading Borough Council or the Environment Agency and open to the public 24/7) throughout the visit. The hydro turbines, turbine house and fish pass can all be viewed from this land.  Your visit hosts will explain and point things out to you, but will not tell you what to do.  We ask all adult visitors to sign to confirm that they understand this.

We have undertaken a risk assessment for visits. We have identified the following risks associated with walking on the public land, and how they are mitigated. Your hosts will remind you of these at the start of the visit.

? Risk of falling into the water and drowning: you are advised to keep behind a fence, or well away from the unfenced edge of View Island. We take only a small number of people on each visit so that they can stay close to the host. Reading Hydro has provided a lifebelt near the site but, because it hangs next to the public footpath, we cannot guarantee that it won’t have been stolen
? Risk of slipping, tripping or falling: much of the route we suggest is on tarmac or concrete paths, but the paths on View Island are unmade. You are advised to wear sturdy footwear and keep a look-out for tree roots, brambles etc on the Island. The wooden footbridges onto View Island and across the entrance of the fish pass can be slippery.
? Risk of injury from bicycles or scooters: the path that leads over the weir is popular with cyclists and scooter users. We advise visitors to call out if they see a bicycle or scooter approaching.  We take only a small number of people on each visit so that they can stay close to the host.
? Risk of injury from dogs biting or jumping up: the paths and View Island are popular with dog walkers. We advise visitors to be alert.

**once delegates have booked to attend they will be sent a copy of this visit agreement issued by Reading Hydro, which unless is completed they cannot attend the visit**

As usual with Thames Valley Group events, afterwards attendees are warmly invited to continue the evening at the Three Guineas Public House outside Reading Station.

Clare Bottle is CEO since 2021 of the UK Warehousing Association and Vice-Chair of Women in Logistics UK, which she co-founded 15 years ago with Ruth Wareing during a career that has taken her through the chemicals, construction and food & drink sectors.  Her strategic leadership experience stems from varied board-level involvement at CILT, Transaid and chairing a school board. At UKWA, which she joined from Coca-Cola Europacific Partners, she has pursued an agenda of economic, social and environmental sustainability, as well as driving diversity and inclusion. At the 2023 CILT Awards for Excellence, Clare won the prestigious Sir Robert Lawrence Award, which recognises the lifetime achievement of an individual, for their outstanding and sustained contribution to the profession of logistics and transport. The Year of Warehousing is a high pro-file, year-long campaign to highlight the critical role of warehousing in supply chains, the sector’s major contribution to the UK economy, the essential employment of 1m people, and the key role it is set to play in embracing solar power to achieve UK’s net zero goals. It coincides with the 80th anniversary of the Association’s inception in 1944, and includes an ambitious programme of 80 site visits across the UK by Clare, whose aim is to showcase the high tech, fast-moving working environ-ments inside UK’s warehouses.
