Blue Power Synergy is a developer of affordable renewable energy systems. Both energy production as energy storage. Today we are developing a stand-alone mobile container-sized 25KW unit with a storage capacity of 250KWh.
Our energy production comes from a synergy between sun and wind. This ensures a more reliable production during the entire period of operation.
Ports Energy and Carbon Savings (PECS) is an Interreg 2 Seas project under the programme priority "Low carbon technologies". PECS aims to develop, test and implement different tools and technologies in order to reduce the carbon footprint of the Small and Medium sized Entrepreneurial (SME) ports and marinas, and to make their functioning more energy-efficient in a cost-effective way.
The cooperation between port authorities, the industry and local stakeholders might be one of the ways to reach these targets. Moreover, innovation will be stimulated in close cooperation between the knowledge institutions, the industry and the concerned ports, in order to select and implement low carbon technologies, which are more adapted to the needs of SME ports and marinas. Lead by the Port of Oostende, knowledge institutions, port authorities, industry and public authorities are working together within the framework of the cross- border Interreg 2 Seas program in order to test and implement different technologies and methods in the field of renewable energy production, energy recuperation and energy storage on land and in the water.
PECS is run by a consortium of 10 partners from 4 European countries: Port of Oostende (BE), City of Hellevoetsluis (NL), Port of Portsmouth (UK), Omgevingsdienst Ijmond (NL), IndaChlor (FR), Blue Power Synergy (BE), CEREMA (FR), Solent University Southampton (UK), Hogeschool Zeeland (NL), University of Ghent (BE). The project is co-financed by the European Fund for Regional Development (ERFD) under grant agreement No 2S03-009. Also, the Dutch Province of North-Holland is offering financial support. It runs from 12/07/2017 till 31/08/2020.
A 40-foot prototype of the modular container based production and storage unit is in production. The unit uses vertical axis wind turbines covering a +36m2 surface and has about +100m2 photovoltaic roof surface.
An Energy storage of 250KWh based on PCM thermal storage is in development.
The research pilot is supported by Vlaio.
In this cross border program for low carbon emissions, BPS is one of the technology partners working closely with Ports, municipalities and universities.
BPS will test a 80-foot long, floating unit in the ports of Ostend and Hellevoetsluis.
