About the event
You are warmly invited to witness how the future can be powered with water. As a member of NWP you have the change to visit a brand new tidal stream turbine in the port of Vlissingen and a large-scale lab facility for pumped-hydro storage simulations.
This day is organized together with the Dutch Association for Energy from Water (EWA), a recent NWP member. Since 2010 the association represents members working on hydropower, wave, tidal, OTEC and Salinity Gradient power solutions. As a growing open community of over than 300 people, EWA builds experiential knowledge. It makes sure the common interests of its members are well represented. The association raises awareness and increases visibility of Dutch solutions for energy from water to stakeholders, export markets, public bodies and citizens. EWA influences legislation and regulations, funding and policy.
Monday 23rd you will get the opportunity to meet with members of EWA. They will share their vision about solutions for the energy transition and how we can become more self-reliant on our energy needs. You will visit a new pilot project realised by Water2Energy as part of the INTERREG ENCORE project, in the port of Flushing (Vlissingen). Here, a vertical axis tidal stream turbine is installed in a discharge channel. You will also visit a unique large-scale lab facility for pumped-hydro storage simulations at the HZ University of Applied Sciences. The facility is part of the “Playing with Currents” project.
