Pinovo's Clean Blasting - Stops Paint Microplastics to Protect Ocean Health
Pinovo "on tour" again! As a result of having won the Special Prize for Marine Biodiversity Solutions from the French government agency, Office français de la biodiversité (OFB) at the 2023 Ocean Pitch Challenge - organised by RespectOcean and Sustainable Ocean Alliance.
As part of this Special Prize, Alain PIBOT of OFB kindly invited Pinovo to attend Les Assises de l'économie de la mer (AEM) in Nantes, and to be part of the OFB stand. AEM brought together 1,800 participants from all parts of the French Maritime industry - from the French Navy, through shipbuilders, port operators, logistics companies, aquaculture companies, researchers, regulators, bankers, innovators, etc., etc.
This was a great opportunity for Pinovo to raise the issue of Ocean Paint Microplastic Pollution, and our solution to this important Ocean problem, with the French maritime industry, and also in front of some very senior French politicians - see photo below!
A key theme throughout the two days of presentations was sustainability, and the importance of Ocean Protection. Pinovo’s mission to stop Paint Microplastics to Protect Ocean Health found a ready and interested audience!
Thank you once again to Olivier Thibault, directeur général de l’OFB, and his colleagues, Alain PIBOT, Laetitia Miquerol, and Aurélien VIAU for their support and encouragement for Pinovo’s mission to protect Ocean Biodiversity and Health.
It was particularly interesting to meet the French Navy (Marine Nationale) and NAVAL GROUP, and to discuss the potential for them to use Pinovo’s clean surface treatment method, as it is currently being used by the Forsvaret - Norwegian Armed Forces (Navy), Royal Navy in the UK, and Swedish Armed Forces (Navy).
Pinovo has been “on tour” in recent weeks bringing our message of #CleanBlasting to both customers and the sustainability community across Europe.
First up, Pinovo attended the Offshore Energy Exhibition & Conference 2023 (OEEC) in Amsterdam last week. This annual event brings together the international #OffshoreEnergy community - producers, contractors, suppliers, thought leaders, industry experts - who operate with #OffshoreWind, #oilandgas , marine energy, hydrogen sector, etc.
Pinovo’s Benelux distributor, Perspect Industrial Products organised a stand at the OEEC2023 with Pinovo and Safety Tools Allmet AS. The common denominator is #ATEX - a key safety feature of Pinovo’s and Allmet’s equipment, which means our equipment can be operated safely in explosive environments. This matters! We operate our technology on board working oil rigs, and in operating chemical plants, without the need for shutdowns.
A big focus at OEEC this year was on wind energy. Pinovo is currently developing a bespoke clean surface treatment solution for offshore wind turbines. We are doing this with the support of Handelens Miljøfond, and in partnership and consultation with experienced wind energy industry players, including KONGSTEIN, Hafslund Eco and Ørsted.
It was great to meet our customers and talk about their plans for 2024 and beyond, and also to discuss opportunities to work together in other industries and geographies.
Important to see the awareness of both the industrial and sustainability advantages of, and the necessity for Clean Surface Treatment Solutions in the Offshore Energy community. And also great to see their awareness that #PaintIsPlastic!
