Curaçao delegation visiting Seawind Ocean Technology
Last week at our offices in Amstelveen in the Netherlands, Seawind Ocean Technology had the honor to present its innovative and cost-effective floating wind turbines to the Delegation of Curaçao. Their visit to Seawind was part of the program ‘Floating Wind Pilot Project in the Curaçao Economic Zone’ and facilitated by the Dutch research institute TNO and the Ministry of Economic Affairs. The Delegation was represented by all important stakeholders of Curaçao within the field of sustainable energy such as: Aqualectra, Curoil, CPA (Curaçao Ports Authority), RdK (Refineria di Kòrsou) and Afvaardiging ambtelijke werkgroep of the Ministry of Economic Development.
Seawind is the only Dutch manufacturer of wind turbines that has its own two bladed patented and proprietary technology that will re-define the offshore wind industry with the significant reductions in costs. Seawind’s Chief Operations Officer Maarten van Aller and Chair of the Board Vincent Dewulf hosted the Delegation and showcased how Seawind’s sustainable wind turbines and straightforward deployment would be a perfect fit for the imminent projects in Curaçao. With the goal of Curaçao to generate 50% renewable electricity by 2025, and actively developing strategies to become a major green energy production hub in which floating offshore wind plays a pivotal role, Seawind is looking forward to supporting these sustainable ambitions with the deployment of our innovative wind turbines.
A special thanks to Ellen Lastdrager and Jan-Hein Jesse for facilitating this meeting.
