There is a better, cleaner way to do surface treatment on Wind Turbines than the method you see in the photo below👇 - which is awful, both in terms of operator safety, and dumping Paint Microplastics into the Ocean!
We are super happy that Pinovo has just been awarded a grant by Handelens Miljøfond (the Norwegian Retailer’s Environment Fund) to develop a Clean Surface Treatment Solution for the Offshore Wind Industry.
Using Pinovo’s patented, proven front-end clean vacuum blasting tools, we will be working with a wind energy industry partner to develop a new, more mobile back-end solution for use on Offshore Wind Turbines.
This will stop Ocean Paint Microplastic Pollution at source, enabling the wind energy industry deliver clean energy, without polluting the Ocean during surface treatment, and with safer working conditions for operators. Pinovo is already providing similar solutions across a range of other industries.
So, after a very busy 2022, this news sets Pinovo up nicely for an even busier 2023!
Many thanks to Handelens Miljøfond, and for all the great work you are doing to support important environmental projects in Norway, and around the world!
