Hackathon: take part in shaping a offshore drone solution on January 23th.

Do you want to participate in developing new solutions for the offshore industry and be a part of the frontrunners on innovative drone solutions?

Then we offer here the opportunity, when Energy Innovation Cluster and UAS Denmark in cooperation with Bladt Industries, invite you to a one-day idea workshop for development of a specific solution for inspection and measurement of large steel constructions for the offshore industry.

Subject of the day

Bladt Industries is the larges Danish suppliers of transision pieces (corwn piece of the foundations for offshore wind turbines) and offshore substations. For this production, they are looking for a drone solution, that is able to accurately measure, survey and inspect the large steel constructions.

Progress of the day

For development of a proper innovative solution, all interested parties are invited to participate in this mini hackathon, that simply aim to fulfill the solution requirements from Bladt Industries. Hence, the program for the day will be an idea generation workshop, that uses Bladt’s requirements as a starting point for schething a full scope solution.

Purpose of the day

The kind of service, Bladt is looking for is not current commercially available, and development is necessary to actualize the solution and develop this game changer within inspection concepts. Based on the ideas and input of the day, suitable solutions and companies for the commercialization are. Following the workshop, the ideas are evalued and one or more companies are selected for the concept development and commercialization. This could, for example, be carried out within a funded innovation project.

Who should participate?

We basically search for companies who have either good ideas or who already have parts of the grand system developed or commercialized. This could eg. Be companies that perform inspection, already have inspection equipment, advanced sensors, develop software or in other ways could contribute to the full scope system.
