Workshop Hydrography on Tidal Energy Atoll
The Hydrographic Society Benelux organized a workshop on the creation of a tidal energy atoll offshore Belgium in the North Sea.
After a short welcome by host Capt. Patrick Blondé, general manager of the Academy, Marijn Rabaut, advisor for North Sea at the Cabinet of Minister Johan Vande Lanotte, and Dr Walter Mondt, CEO of Ecorem, explored the plans and backgrounds of the technical side and considerations for the exact location of the island to be created.
This was followed by the best Thesis Award, which this year was awarded to Cornelis Slobbe of TU Delft.
