Ministers of Energy and wind industry executives experienced offshore wind innovation with a sail in ESVAGT's STB 12.

The wind energy conference North Seas Energy Days in Esbjerg gathered the Ministers of Energy from the North Sea and wind industry executives to debate the vision of a Silicon Valley for offshore wind in the North Sea.

This is a vision that requires new technology and innovative solutions, which the Ministers gained an insight into during their visit to ESVAGT, a company that has set new standards within efficient operation of offshore wind farms through its innovative SOV concept. ESVAGT also invited participants on a tour of the ’Esvagt Innovator’ and a sail onboard ESVAGT’s STB 12 and FRBs.
