Win with your knowledge about hydrogen! Take part in this unique team experience: the Hydrogen Race Cars. Does your team know the most about hydrogen? Then you will see your little car race around the track first! Students will guide this!
Build your own miniature offshore wind farm! Each team will be given a budget to invest in supplies, knowledge and materials. Who can build the most cost-effective wind farm and win the challenge? After the testing phase, the team with the lowest investment will be crowned the winner! Students will guide this!
The Rich North Sea
Discover the unparalleled beauty of North Sea marine life in the Rich North Sea Cinema. Learn about nature enhancement in offshore wind farms and discover the life to be found there. Rich North Sea aims to strengthen nature in the North Sea. their dream: A healthy North Sea, source of renewable energy, rich in nature and full of life.
As a sponsor of Sail Den Helder, the province of North Holland is taking visitors into the new world of hydrogen. The port of Den Helder is going to play an important role in this.
Meet the racing of the future, Forze Hydrogen Racing is going to exhibit their Forze IX racing car at the event. The Forze IX racing car is a race car used for races in the Formula Zero competition.
Visitors can race the Forze IX racing car in the Hydrogen Racing simulator. This allows them to experience hands on what it is like to drive (virtually) in car powered by hydrogen.
The hydrogen demo makes hydrogen generation tangible! In this demo, solar panels are used to generate energy which in turn is used to produce hydrogen. The hydrogen is then converted into electricity which drives a propeller.
Kenneth & Andor present the Hydrogen Quiz at the Blue Port Center. What do you know about hydrogen or new energy? What do you know about blue or green hydrogen? What is happening in Den Helder? In short, test your knowledge and win a great Sail Den Helder prize!
Have you ever experienced working on 40 meter height? Have you have felt wind force 12 on your face? And have you experienced the first blow of cold water after you fell overboard? You haven’t? Soon you will, without even leaving the port!
The Offshore Experience will return on 12 September 2023. The Offshore Experience allows you to feel what it is like to be at the mercy of the elements while, at the same time, working towards a sustainable blue economy.
A sustainable blue economy is with the huge claim on (marine) space becoming more and more important. So how can an offshore wind farm and gas platform share their space with fisheries or farming? During the Offshore Experience you will gain knowledge about the most important topics of todays offshore challenges.
The Offshore Experience is for professionals in the offshore sector, for entrepreneurs interested in the offshore sector and for students. The Offshore Experience is for anyone active in the blue economy: offshore wind companies, ecology, fisheries, you name it.
