In front of the conference, there will be a mess area, where we will focus on new technologies this time.

Companies in mess area:

Great opportunity to meet Inspirators! & SparkCognition representatives and ask practical questions about AI and how you can benefit from it. We will present 2 products Renewable Energy Suite and Visual AI. At our stand we will show some practical examples of how AI can help owners and operators to increase the production from their current assets, and how to reduce O&M costs.

In January 2022, Vestas was named the most sustainable company in the world in the 18th annual Global 100 ranking published by Corporate Knights.

Enefit Green
We felt like photomontages were not enough in 2022. Thus, Enefit Green has developed a solution to visualize planned wind farms using virtual reality glasses. VR visualizations offer realistic views of how a wind farm would look like in a local natural environment. Video visualizations add a layer of context, such as wind whistling, trees moving and waves breaking.
We will be showcasing both onshore and offshore wind farms!

3D Wind Service and Sulzer Schmid Laboratories
The more wind turbines the quicker and more cost-effective inspection methods are required to keep them producing. Drones are the answer. Sulzer Schmid (SSL) has their cloud-based 3DX™ Blade Platform, which offers a fully transparent view of the blade health status of the entire fleet and allows customers to capture visual blade data using fully autonomous drones, process the images and generate highly customizable reports at a push of a button. 3DWS has inspected around 800 turbines using SSL technology. Come and see how it works.

Engineering bureau STEIGER is an independent consulting company founded in 2004, by now we are employing more than 50 specialists with higher education. Our main business has been providing geological, laboratory, engineering and environmental studies to the mining and energy industry. During the resent years we have also provided services for the onshore and offshore wind park developers, as the main investigation phase still lies ahead then we see a great potential to strengthen our foothold in the highly perspective renewables sector.
