French Pavilion is the Ocean Business 2013 in Southampton

05.03.2013
The French Trade Commission UBIFRANCE in London will showcase the best of French ocean technology on the French Pavilion at Ocean Business 2013. Ocean Business, which is held every two years at the National Oceanography Centre, in Southampton (England), will take place from 9 to 11 April 2013.

A total of eight sea-technology companies from France will be exhibiting at the Ocean Business trade show as part of the French Pavilion (Stand T5), which is being organised with the backing of the French Trade Commission in the UK and UBIFRANCE, the French export-support agency.

The French companies, from across the sector, will present their innovative products and advanced technological solutions in sea technology in order to reinforce their professional contacts with British partners and to provide mutually beneficial business opportunities.

Ocean Business 2013 is expected to attract 300 exhibitors and 4,000 visitors from over 50 countries across a dockside exhibition area that has tripled in size since 2011. Ocean Business is a hands-on exhibition incorporating presentations and on-water demonstrations and training sessions, with a wide range of networking opportunities for visitors and exhibitors.

Ocean Business is held every two years in Southampton, on the south coast of England, and is due to take place between 9 and 11 April of this year.

Companies on the French Pavilion are listed below; a catalogue with further details on each of the exhibitors is available upon request.

Im Focus: Designing Architecture with Solar Building Envelopes

Among the general public, solar thermal energy is currently associated with dark blue, rectangular collectors on building roofs. Technologies are needed for aesthetically high quality architecture which offer the architect more room for manoeuvre when it comes to low- and plus-energy buildings. With the “ArKol” project, researchers at Fraunhofer ISE together with partners are currently developing two façade collectors for solar thermal energy generation, which permit a high degree of design flexibility: a strip collector for opaque façade sections and a solar thermal blind for transparent sections. The current state of the two developments will be presented at the BAU 2017 trade fair.

As part of the “ArKol – development of architecturally highly integrated façade collectors with heat pipes” project, Fraunhofer ISE together with its partners...
