Finalists of the Offshore Wind Innovation Award announced
A jury of experts has nominated three companies for the Offshore Wind Innovation Award 2019. On December 11 the entrepreneurs of MO4, Seaqualize and Amphibious Energy will present themselves for representatives of the wind industry during the Q-meeting of Van Oord and SiemensGamesa. After their pitches, the winners of the jury prize and the public prize will be awarded.
MO4 has developed software that forecasts workability of vessels in offshore operations with much more accuracy than is currently possible, by computing the influence of waves, wind and current on vessels.
The Seaqualize Delta is a flexibly deployable inline active heave compensator for loads of 600 mT and up, with unprecedented precision, enabling floating installation of (parts of) offshore wind turbines.
Amphibious Energy has developed the EnergyPod, a transportable, autonomous energy container. This all in one, plug and play package of wind, solar and battery storage is designed to replace diesel generator sets on the monopile transition pieces during installation.
The Offshore Wind Innovation Award is intended to raise awareness of the innovative power of this community. In addition, it creates media exposure for the finalists and winner(s) to potential customers and investors.
