Meet the Belgian Offshore Wind Industry

Working together for a strong Offshore Industry in Belgium

A lot of opportunities for Belgian companies

Belgian Offshore Days will bring together more than 50 companies active in the Offshore Wind Industry.

The Offshore Wind Business in Belgium is undoubtedly in full swing. In the Belgian part of the North Sea there are already four operational wind farms: C-Power, Belwind 1, Northwind and Nobelwind.

With Rentel and Norther under construction the offshore industry is at cruising speed.

At the same time Northwester 2, Mermaid and Seastar are in the pipeline. This makes Belgium one of the great flagship of Europe.

The knowledge present in Belgian companies is both at home and abroad of great value. The opportunities for further growth are a big boost for the Belgian companies.

Belgian Offshore Days is initiated by Belgian Offshore Cluster

Since 2015, AIRA LAB has been developing Smart Contracts using Blockchain technology for industry 4.0, smart factories, smart cities, autonomous vehicles, supply chain management, carbon credits trading, liability and insurance applications. The key know-how of AIRA LAB is the algorithm that allows to link together technical and economic transactions between machines, and/or between humans and machines, into one comprehensive transaction. AIRA LAB can record such transactions in 100% secure and immutable way. For the offshore wind industry, it means automatic tracking and encrypted recording of the history of technical failures and maintenance operations. The system keeps this information securely protected from any types of forgery or adulteration for the infinite duration of time. The resulting database is a valuable resource of trustworthy data for inter-corporate proceedings or insurance claims.
