Blue Accelerator gets an upgrade
The container part of our maritime test platform temporarily left the coast of Ostend on 20 August.
The container was brought onshore in Ostend, in the vicinity of Ostend Science Park.
New equipment will be installed in the coming weeks, upgrading the technical area:
improvement of the electricity facilities
adding more sensors
new equipment for data transmission
improving the safety and security of the platform
The outer part of the container will also be refreshed: a board with the name Blue Accelerator will be attached to the long side.
If all goes well, Blue Accelerator 2.0 will return to sea mid-September.
