Find out all about the Blue Accelerator on 27 October

Belgium is one of the leaders in offshore wind energy. Nevertheless, a lot of research is also conducted into other blue energy forms, such as wave and tidal energy. Good test facilities are crucial in this regard.
11 October 2021

In 2019, the Provincial Development Agency West Flanders, in cooperation with several partners, decided to install an innovation and development platform off the coast in Ostend, with the aim of accelerating the growth of blue energy. The platform was named Blue Accelerator

On 27 October, you have the opportunity to find out more about this unique offshore test platform. In addition to some speeches, the first tests of the platform will be discussed and you will meet the Blue Accelerator ambassadors. Afterwards, you can network and enjoy a buffet.
