Stakeholder workshop CORDOBA

20 October 2022

Continued development of offshore wind farms is crucial in the European energy transition plans.

The energy generated by these wind farms has to be transported to land. In order to build these hybrid offshore connections, a more integrated and cross-border approach is a prerequisite.

The CORDOBA project, initiated by Blue Cluster and Flux50, the companies Elicio, Marlinks, Yuso and Enersynt, in cooperation with EnergyVille/KU Leuven, has been set up as a provider of decision-making tools and operational models to facilitate this collaboration. The project was launched in January 2021 and runs until December 2023. 

Now at the halfway mark, it was time to organise a mid-term evaluation and a stakeholder workshop, where knowledge and experience are exchanged. Lunch was followed by an Advisory board meeting, and we ended the day with a visit to our offshore wind farm Norther, in unseasonably summery conditions for October. Clearing our heads and getting some air.... to be able to shape the CORDOBA project with fresh ideas! Just a perfect day! 

Thanks to all partners, the clusters involved, VLAIO, and especially the hosts of the day: Otary & Norther
