Kick-off of 6th Offshore Wind Innovation Challenge
February 9th 2022: SSE Renewables and Offshore Wind Innovators, in close cooperation with TKI Wind op Zee are launching the 6th Offshore Wind Innovation Challenge! SSE Renewables is addressing two of its current challenges for offshore wind development through the Offshore Wind Innovation Challenge:
- Producing a stable baseload of energy from an offshore wind farm.
- Collecting ecological data at an offshore wind farm.
From February 8th to April 8th, SSE Renewables evokes entrepreneurs to take up the challenges by presenting either a concept or a proven solution. From April to June 2022, the entrepreneurs will get the opportunity to work with experts from SSE Renewables and TKI Wind op Zee in two plenary sessions to further shape their innovative solutions. The finalists will pitch their developed concept to a wide audience during the Finals in June 10th 2022.
This will increase the visibility of participants and their innovations in the offshore wind market. In addition, they receive expert coaching from leading offshore wind companies, which could act as launching customers. The first five editions of the Offshore Wind Innovation Challenge led to partnerships and innovations like the bubble curtain, artificial reefs, new fender techniques and more.
