The session continued with a presentation from Piet Ackermans, Chairman of Dutch Energy from Water Association (EWA) who talked about Dutch expertise in dealing with water.
Furthermore, ocean thermal energy conversion (OTEC) technology was brought closer to the audience by Berend Jan Kleute, Chief Technology Officer at Bluerise.
The session went on with an update on wave energy developments that were presented by Roelof Schuitema, Director at Teamwork Technology.
Andy Butler from Longitude Engineering wrapped up the session by presenting several case studies where engineering ingenuity managed to deliver solutions that greatly assisted and accelerated the delivery of projects.
The second day of Offshore Energy Exhibition & Conference will see the start of Marine Energy Event 2017.
