USA ANDRITZ HYDRO Hammerfest Receives International Pioneer Award

ANDRITZ HYDRO Hammerfest, leading tidal energy company, receives the “International Pioneer Award“ during the 9th Energy Ocean International Conference & Exhibition held in Boston, USA for their contribution and efforts in exploring marine energy.

Stein Andersen, Managing Director in ANDRITZ HYDRO Hammerfest says:

“It is a pleasure receiving this award that gratifies all our efforts in providing state of the art technologies in the renewable market. Since the beginning we have aimed at providing innovative and economically sustainable technologies capable of harnessing this vast and unexploited energy resource. The deployment of the HS1000 is a first step towards developing commercial arrays worldwide; – and the first is planned for being deployed in Scotland in 2014.”

Mark Glazer, Show Director at the EnergyOcean International Annual Award says:

“This is the 9th year we are presenting the International Pioneer Award. The work that ANDRITZ HYDRO Hammerfest is doing in the way of tidal energy in Europe displays the excellence that is expected of an award recipient”.

“Their work exemplifies the promise that ocean energy offers and the power that tidal energy can deliver in the future.”

66kV Offshore Wind 2015

The only networking event on 66kV array grids.

66kV Offshore Wind is a technical event for experts in the wind industry. The goal is to provide a clear path to commercial implementation of 66kV array grids. By exploring developer requirements, WTG capabilities and equipment certification, we hope to reduce both uncertainty and time to implementation for 66kV offshore wind.

The conference aims to:

  • Evaluate project requirements to select 66kV inter-arrays
  • Explore turbine requirements for use in 66kV systems
  • Review certification procedures for higher voltage equipment
  • Evaluate the technology and cost impacts on transformers, cables and switchgears
  • Understand the need for reactive power compensation in offshore substations
