Startups Safemore, Stormlinker, Bedrock Ocean, and Ocean Grid are the first winners in the NOW Accelerator by Norwegian Offshore Wind, which sought new solutions for the floating offshore wind industry, focusing on flexibility, scalability, low maintenance, and longevity.

Seven pioneering startups and scaleups were selected to present at Norway’s first offshore wind accelerator, which aimed to drive innovation in the global offshore wind industry. Presentations were made to offshore wind companies Å Energi, Corio, and Seaway 7 at this year’s Floating Wind Days, which took place on 29 and 30 May.

The NOW Accelerator bridges collaboration between startups and industry partners through innovation scale-up Wazoku, which provides its platform and crowd to facilitate an innovation ecosystem.

The NOW Accelerator journey began on 14 March 2024, when Å Energi and Corio launched the first Open Innovation Challenge, targeting "Floating Offshore Wind-Safe Solutions for Black Swan Events." This challenge called for sustainability startups to propose solutions that prioritise environmental and human safety, as well as financial stability and operational efficiency in the offshore wind sector.

Additionally, Seaway 7 introduced an initiative focused on advancing floating offshore wind mooring and dynamic cable infrastructure.
