Please meet Offshore Wind Innovators Challenge Finalist REEFY
Innovation for Nature
Reefy has taken on the mission of designing the perfect biodegradable artificial reef as solution for the 2020 Offshore Wind Innovation Challenge. In their journey Reefy has teamed-up and consulted many experts in their field. Ecology, engineering, materials science, and marine contractors are coming together in a unique and up-scalable innovation that will help the nature of the North Sea flourish once again!
Reefy sees marine infrastructure not as an individual component but as a part of the existing environment. They look to develop designs that enhance these qualities by harmonizing engineering and nature. Monitoring and understanding the system will provide the insights not only to design their solution to the specific ecosystem, but to understand the existing threats and stresses for its development. Reefy aims to innovate in the blue economy market, their main objectives a net zero carbon footprint in the production processes, and to help bring back lost reef ecosystems using nature as an inspiration.
