Pieter Jan Jordans | EMODnet OPEN SEA LAB

Pieter Jan Jordaens joined Sirris – the Belgian technology center, in 2010 as a project manager. Since then, he has been responsible to set-up OWI-Lab which is the Belgian research, development and innovation lab for wind power. He focused on developing the R&D and test services of the lab, specifically on topics as ‘climate chamber testing’ of wind turbine components for cold, hot, and tropical climates. In cooperation with the university of Brussel (VUB) he also worked on topics as structural health monitoring (SHM) and big data for (offshore) wind turbine applications.

Currently he is involved in different R&D projects which have the aims to reduce the LCOE in cold climate and offshore wind power applications. He also is working in the IEA wind, task 19 working group on cold climate wind power and operates as a cluster manager for the cluster for innovation IBN Offshore Energy. Before joining Sirris, Pieter Jan obtained a Master's degree in Electro-Mechanical Engineering from the International University College Group T in Leuven, where he also studied in the International Postgraduate Programme in Entrepreneurial Engineering.
