The Missão Técnica Eólica Offshore was a special trip to Germany for Brazilian decision-makers, organised by the Câmara de Comércio e Indústria Brasil-Alemanha do Rio de Janeiro (AHK-RJ) in cooperation with Johannes Dimas - Energy & Project Management.
The trip did provide the participants with a deeper understanding of the technical and environmental regulatory framework of the offshore wind energy sector in Germany and how this combines with the new technologies, trends, as well as with the financing and insurance sector. Furthermore, the participants came in contact with the main players of the offshore wind sector in Germany.
A Missão Técnica Eólica Offshore (19 - 24 de Maio de 2019) proporcionará aos participantes aprofundamento e atualização nos conhecimentos sobre regulamentação técnica e ambiental do setor eólico offshore, nas novas tecnologias e tendências, bem como irá possibilitar a geração de contatos nas principais empresas, instituições de pesquisa e agências regulatórias do setor eólico offshore alemão.

The Missão Técnica Eólica Offshore was a great success for both, the Brazilian Delegation as well as for the involved German companies. The delegation visited over ten companies and the WINDFORCE conference. As a final event, the Hamburg Renewable Energy Cluster (EEHH) had organized an industry event in the historic St. Pauli Landungsbrücken in Hamburg.
The feedback from the Brazilian and German sides was striking positive, especially because of the remarkable high-level professional exchange and the contacts that were established.
The WINDFORCE Conference offers all delegates of the "Missão Técnica Eólica Offshore" the opportunity to take part on a boat excursion to a wind farm in the North Sea combined with the traditional WINDFORCE Dinner on board.
The delegates can book this event separately, even if they are not participating on the WINDFORCE Congress. Delegates may contact AHK Rio de Janeiro for further information.

Established in 2002, ABEEólica is a non-profit organization that represents the wind energy sector in Brazil. Its members representing the entire wind energy supply chain.
The ENRICH centre in Brazil is supporting the "Missão Técnica Eólica Offshore" with its far-reaching network.
ENRICH encourages and facilitates cooperation in research, technology and entrepreneurship by supporting and empowering innovation actors throughout the innovation value chain.
Promoted by the European Commission through Horizon 2020, the ENRICH network currently offers services to connect European research, technology and business organisations with three global frontrunner innovation markets: Brazil, China and the USA. The ENRICH centre in Brazil is a main hub and contact point for European and Brazilian innovation actors interested in bilateral cooperation.
The Executive Committee for the Promotion and Regulation of Brazilian Offshore Wind Energy, an initiative coordinated by the Center for Strategies in Natural Resources and Energy (Cerne), discussed the preparation of a study about a regulatory framework for the operation of offshore wind farms in Brazil. The intention of the multi-institutional discussion is to suggest a regulatory model for Brazil. According to Petrobras, the offshore potential is very significant and the coasts of Rio Grande do Norte and Ceará have a vast area with depths of less than 50 meters.
It is expected that the document, to be prepared by the Cerne commission, will be published by the end of the first half of 2019.
Holger Matthiesen, Managing Director of E.ON Climate & Renwables Services GmbH, will held a presentation about Offshore Wind at E.ON for the Brazilian delegation of the expert trip "Missão Técnica Eólica Offshore" in May 2019.
E.ON Climate & Renewables (EC&R) is responsible for E.ON’s industrial-scale renewable energy activities. The technology portfolio covers onshore and offshore wind, as well as utility-scale photovoltaic (PV) solar power and energy storage. E.ON Climate & Renewables develop, build and operate large renewable energy assets primarily in Europe and North America, totaling to an energy generation capacity of 7 GW. The offshore office in Hamburg develops, constructs and operates offshore projects in Central Europe.
Dr. Jan Curschmann, Honorary Consul for Brazil, will welcome the Brazilian delegation on an event on May 23, 2019 in the historic St. Pauli Landungsbrücken. The event is organised by the Hamburg Renewable Energy Cluster (EEHH), the Câmara de Comércio e Indústria Brasil-Alemanha do Rio de Janeiro (AHK-RJ), and by Johannes Dimas in the course of the expert trip "Missão Técnica Eólica Offshore" in May 2019.
