Jules Dock, ECE Offshore and Next Ocean to share their innovation process experiences
Together with Offshore Wind Innovators, the three finalists of the Offshore Wind Innovations Award will speak during the Offshore Seminar on February 15 in Rotterdam. They will share their experiences during the innovation process especially regarding financing and launching customers.
The Offshore Seminar brings together leading energy developers, united in their commitment to securing clean, economical energy for the future.
Martin Weissmann of Offshore Wind Innovators will give a presentation about the need of a community for innovative entrepreneurs to realize the ambitious goals of the Dutch government.
Jules Dock, winner of the jury award, has developed a lightweight composite tower. Composite towers for the offshore wind industry offer a lightweight solution for large and heavy constructions. In a 10 MW wind turbine, 240 tons of steel is no longer needed.
ECE Offshore, winner of the public award, has developed an acoustic offshore system. OASYS Cable is a cable monitoring system that is attached to the cable laying ship. It real-time detects the cable geometry and cable integrity. In addition, the landing site of the cable can be compared with the planned position.
Next Ocean has developed the Wave Predictor. The Wave Predictor predicts when and where high waves occur. This allows offshore operators to choose an optimal period to carry out work instead of waiting for better conditions or hoping for the best.
