Workshop “Business Opportunities towards Emission Free Maintenance”

Are you active in the world of wind at sea and do you recognize the importance of zero-emission sailing? Then come to the “Business Opportunities towards Emission Free Maintenance” workshop in Hamburg on 27 September! During this workshop Center of Maritime Technologies Germany (CMT) and Maritime by Holland want to map out the possibilities for emission-free maintenance of wind farms, together with you. The seminar will take place during WindEnergy Hamburg, an exhibition that attracts many international players from the onshore and offshore wind sector. A perfect breeding ground for innovative solutions!

Achieving the ambitious goals of the EU within the field of ​​sustainable energy requires wind energy. Because there is still plenty of space at sea, many new wind farms will be built there in the coming years. The Netherlands aims to generate at least 4450 MW from offshore wind energy by 2023. This is 12 times what the wind generation value was in 2015!

With the construction of new wind farms, the maintenance effort will also increase sharply. Now maintenance vessels are still sailing on conventional fuels, but this is not an appropriate energy generation method in terms of sustainability and this is why the emissions from maintenance vessels must be significantly reduced.

With this in mind, you are cordially invited to think about solutions to reduce emissions from maintenance vessels on 27 September. Various options will be discussed, such as (hybrid) electrical solutions and solutions using hydrogen-fuel cells. In addition, challenges with regard to ​​availability and storage of energy and connectivity will also be covered. The seminar will therefore be able to provide an important stimulus for players in the entire chain: from client to system supplier!
