Energy Talks&Drinks – Catching up on Offshore Wind

2 May 2019 @ 17:30 - 19:00

Offshore wind


May’s Talks&Drinks has a focus on offshore wind. Maritime Research Institute Netherlands (MARIN) has been an important partner in the offshore developments from the beginning. With its expertise in the field of offshore hydrodynamics it assists the industry in the design and operation of safe and economical offshore structures. Floor Spaargaren will tell you more about multifunctional use of wind energy and the North Sea during the talks.

Mark Goossens from TouchWind will present planet’s first low-cost floating wind turbine: TouchWind Mono. Current wind turbines are made to stop functioning in wind speeds exceeding 25 m/s. Mono isn’t. As its rotor automatically finds the right position, it is able to handle wind speeds of up to 70 m/s. The result: more energy.

Frits Bliek from Ocean Grazer will explain how the Ocean Grazer harvests ocean energy and controls the output, delivering the energy exactly when we need it. This flexibility enables a balanced supply and demand. What better way to meet the growing demand for energy, and at the same time save our planet?
