Innovation

A new sustainable energy zone is under construction some 20 kilometres off the Dutch coast: Borssele Wind Farm Site V. This site has been designated as an innovation site within the Borssele Wind Farm Zone. The Two Towers consortium, consisting of Van Oord, Investri Offshore and Green Giraffe, has been awarded the project and thus given a unique opportunity to test and demonstrate advanced technologies.

Project film series

Curious students of the HZ university of applied sciences  following the minor Offshore Wind closely monitored and filmed the project preparation and execution. The web series consists of seven episodes, demonstrating Van Oord putting innovation into practice.
