Regional information

Bremerhaven is shaped by its proximity to the sea with the result that many maritime focused companies, which need the sea as a transport route or as a source of raw material, have set up here. These sectors include wind energy, port operations and logistics, as well as the food and shipbuilding industries. Tourism has also become a further steady industry. The science and research sector, together with the University of Applied Sciences Bremerhaven and various other institutions, enjoys within this environment an excellent reputation.

The future is being defined by the historical quays of the Old and New Harbours. Innovative developments have significantly changed the region over the recent years. This results in an enormous extension of the wind energy sector in Bremerhaven to the leading competence centre and production area for offshore wind energy in the region of North-West-Germany. The whole supply chain is represented by small and medium enterprises from planning offices to service providers, production companies and educational institutions.
 

Partner information

University of Applied Sciences Bremerhaven
As a pioneering and innovative university, the “University by the Sea” has reacted to these changes and specifically offers maritime study courses. Although it was only established in 1975, the University of Applied Sciences Bremerhaven can look back over a century of educational tradition, thanks to its predecessor institutions, the Geestemünde College of Navigation and the Technical College.

Thus, the University has unmistakably positioned itself as a maritime focussed University because of its geographical positions directly on the mouth of the River Weser, but also, above all, because of its 27 interesting and attractive courses of study. Currently around 3,000 students are studying on the campus, where they have access to institutes and laboratories equipped with the latest facilities for internationally unique courses. Overall the degree courses enjoy an excellent reputation, both in Germany and abroad, as the findings of university ranking lists prove again and again.

Due to the rising wind energy industry the University of Applied Sciences developed two new study courses with specialisation on maritime and wind energy specific contents, the Bachelor study course “Maritime Technologies” and the Master study course “Wind Energy Technology”.

fk-wind: Institute for Wind Energy
Future energy supply is unimaginable without renewable energy. There are high hopes riding on offshore wind energy, which has developed into a sector with immense potential. The fk-wind: Institute for Wind Energy at the University of Applied Sciences Bremerhaven has had a significant role in positioning the federal state of Bremen as a research and development hub for wind energy.

The fk-wind: is directly involved in the development of the wind energy specific study courses and the content of teaching. The institute is the interface between teaching, research and application and ensures, among other things, that engineers receive practical, hands-on training on the wind energy technology courses. Both applied research and teaching is practiced on the theme of "to understand the wind turbine as a whole”, taking into consideration the wind energy plant and its surrounding in its entirety at all times.

Individual disciplines include marine and offshore engineering, measuring and sensor technology, load assumptions and simulation, rotor aerodynamics, rotor blade structures and icing, load monitoring, operational and environmental conditions, recycling and life cycle assessment and the optimisation of old wind turbines. The fk-wind: supports the transfer of knowledge between industry, science and teaching with workshops, events, consultancy, studies and further education.

Reason for participating in POWER cluster

The University of Applied Sciences and the fk-wind: were former partners within the EU-project POWER - Pushing Offshore Wind Energy Regions and wants to network with existing contacts and find new partners. The project POWER cluster offers a perfect platform for this concern and offers possibilities for developing new activities in an international context.

Main reasons for participating in the POWER cluster project are the development of new study and further education modules like BSc and MSc programmes for wind energy and also the inspiring of the youth for a profession in the wind energy sector. Thus the project gives a possibility to support the settlement of industry with high qualified engineers and counteracts against the lack / need of wind energy specific educated personnel.
