Seeking solutions to increase the efficiency of oil used in the gearbox of off-shore wind turbines. Solutions could include measurement of quality, reconditioning of oil, new sustainable long-lasting oils as well as how to replace the oil.
Looking for ways to have remote presence via robotics to inspect and conduct basic operations and maintenance in Offshore wind turbines. Technology should include vision, sensors, and robotics.
Tools to calculate the CO2 footprint of meetings /conferences (going from office meetings to large conferences), help to track improvements and facilitate shared transport to and from the meetings between participants.
Collaboration partners will not only receive pilot funding but directly work with BUs accessing know-how about customers, infrastructure as well as support throughout the process by the green:field & Pioneers team. Selected companies will be offered a joint proof-o -concept of ~4 months to:
