The conference “Wind & Maritim”, organized by the WindEnergy Network e.V., is the only conference in north-eastern Germany to combine wind energy and maritime economy and offers national and international members of the industry the possibility to get into an exchange about market and technology trends. This year, about 40 speakers from the fields wind energy (on- & offshore), maritime economy as well as marine technology delivered their talks. The conference is held under the patronage of the prime minister of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Erwin Sellering.
WIND-projekt used the opportunity to present the first hydrogen car registered in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern to experts and political guest. The participants of the conference were interested in the technology and the possible range of the car. Especially the CO2-free motor and the silent way of driving sparked enthusiasm among the test drivers. The guest support the commitment of WIND-projekt to the production of renewable fuels for example in the form of hydrogen. After extensive talks, many participants of the conference took the opportunity for a test drive with the Hyundai ix35 Fuel Cell.
