About Us
Marlinks originated from the companies Fluves and Parkwind, when they decided to combine their knowhow and experience in cable monitoring in a new joint-venture. Fluves developed its technique of continuous burial depth measurement during a research project on onshore measurement. As the tool evolved, they noticed it would also be applicable in the offshore industry. Fluves started scanning several offshore wind developers for collaboration, and Parkwind immediately recognised the value of this innovative technique. They decided to join forces in a mutual research project: to investigate the use of the same technique for offshore power cables, and thus disruptively improving the risk monitoring in offshore wind operating. The program turned out to be successful, so a joint-venture was launched to commercialise the project results: Marlinks was born.

Belgian Offshore Days, 21-22 March 2018, Ostend Sea P’lace (Hippodroom), Belgium. Belgian Offshore Days 2018 will bring together more than 50 companies active in the Offshore Wind Industry. The Offshore Wind Business in Belgium is undoubtedly in full swing. In the Belgian part of the North Sea there are already four operational wind farms: C-Power, ... MoreBelwind 1, Northwind and Nobelwind.

With Rentel and Norther under construction the offshore industry is at cruising speed.

At the same time Northwester 2, Mermaid and Seastar are in the pipeline. This makes Belgium one of the great flagship of Europe.

The knowledge present in Belgian companies is both at home and abroad of great value. The opportunities for further growth are a big boost for the Belgian companies.

Belgian Offshore Days is initiated by Belgian Offshore Cluster
