Science Meets Industry Bergen took place on Tuesday September 9. The arrangement was organized by NORCOWE in collatoration with Bergen Council of Commerce and industry, and took place at Hotel Grand Terminus in the centre of Bergen.
Save the date for the 2015 arrangement!
We were happy to have 80 participants, and see that this arrangement is becoming an established arena for the offshore wind branch. People from the industry and research from Norway, other European countries, USA and Japan were present. The diversity of fields of knowledge and backgrounds made a good starting point for interesting conversations, discussions and sharing of knowledge and experiences. During the day, there were poster sessions where both researchers and industrial participants took part in presenting their work. The posters are available below in the article.
Presentations were held by people representing different branches like Svein Grandum from Innovation Norway, Sam Hawkins from Vattenfall UK, Nenad Keseric from Statoil and Michail Cronopoloulos from NHH. Thomas Bak, Aalborg University, presented NORCOWE reference windfarm, which is under development, while Geir Hovland, University of Agder, and Klaus Høj Henriksen, Cargotech, presented heave compensating solutions. The presentations are available below.
Next “Science meets industry” event is scheduled April 2015 in Stavanger.
