King activates STT's demonstration set up
On 26 November 2014, King Willem-Alexander has opened the test set up for Blue Energy at the Afsluitdijk.
The opening ceremony consisted of starting up the demonstration set up, which STT Products has developed for Wetsus. In this set up, both fresh and salt water are transported along membranes. The difference in voltage generates new energy, which is used to power an electronic motor and propellor.
The Blue Energy center where energy generation from fresh and salt water is tested is situated in Breezanddijk.
Blue Energy is co-developed by the water technology institute Wetsus from Leeuwarden.
