Working together for a strong Offshore Industry in Belgium

A lot of opportunities for Belgian companies

The next edition of Belgian Offshore Days (20 & 21 March 2019) will be hosted by Belgian Offshore Cluster at the historical Wellington Racetrack in Ostend.
Belgium remains a pioneer in offshore wind energy in Europe. The Belgian Offshore Days celebrates its 5th anniversary and will surprise its visitors with a fascinating program.

The fair gives the Offshore Wind industry a forum and encourages the collaboration between Belgian and International companies.

During this event, a conference will be held with focus on “Servitization trends in offshore wind O&M”. Next to the conference a B2B meeting will enable participants to establish relations with new business partners across the entire offshore wind supply chain.

Peter Troch and Marc Vantorre, Ghent University

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.
