This March, VizionZ Engineering was part of the Dutch trade mission to Denmark and the North of Germany to promote the company’s prime innovative technology for the cost reduction of offshore wind foundations – the ZeaDamper™. Trailing behind the Dutch King and Queen and the minister of foreign affairs, VizionZ Engineering was one of the companies promoting the services and innovative products that the Dutch offshore wind industry has to offer.
The VizionZ technology was received well by the innovation-minded industry parties from both countries including several of the leading project developers and contractors in the sector. The ZeaDamper™ addresses namely the major challenge in the whole offshore wind industry for the coming years – reduction of the cost. And it does so in a cost effective way.

Our managing director was part of several discussion panels on the subject offshore wind including one with Her Majesty the Queen Máxima of the Netherlands. The visits to both Copenhagen and Hamburg also offered good opportunities for one-on-one meetings with the leading companies and research organizations in offshore wind, which proved to be very valuable for the international ambitions of VizionZ Engineering.
Finally, a visit to several places symbolizing the leading role of Denmark in renewable energy and offshore wind in particular made the trade mission complete. These included a visit to the Middelgrunden wind farm and the island Samsø.
We are looking back at a successful mission and looking forward towards several potential partnerships for the joint development of the ZeaDamper™ technology in tackling the cost reduction in offshore wind.
