Emerging Offshore Technologies - IBN Offshore Energy

This knowledge- and inspiration sharing and networking session organized by the IBN Offshore Energy cluster in partnership with the Agoria Energy Technology Club and the Belgian Offshore Cluster (BOC) will focus on three emerging offshore energy technologies: Wave energy - Tidal Energy - and Floating Wind Energy. Local and international invited speakers will share latest technology and market insights. 

The first part of the seminar will focus on the latest wave & tidal energy developments and it’s specific challenges to date for the developers and technology providers. Also some new national RD&I initiatives will be explained to support this emerging sector, topped up with a market update & evolutions in certification.

A B2B networking lunch is offered by the Interreg 2 Seas MET-CERTIFIED project.

The second part of the seminar will focus on floating wind energy developments. As offshore wind energy is gaining interest worldwide, certain countries can only look at floating wind turbines due to their large seat depth. Currently different floating prototypes are tested or prepared for testing – not only the traditional 3-bladed turbine designs – also 2-bladed and even vertical axis wind turbine designs are put to the test. The session will explain the current technology developments, initiatives and market developments.
