RENEWABLE ENERGY – for a sustainable transition to an electrified society

 

As future societies and industries become increasingly electrified, the demand for renewable and fossil-free energy will continue to rise. Recognizing this, Hexicon has made it a central part of its strategy to drive and support the development towards a sustainable energy supply for industries and societies. By harnessing the enormous potential of wind power at sea, Hexicon aims to create favorable conditions for countries, communities, and industries to make sustainable, resource-efficient, and long-term choices that will power a greener future.

THE BLUE ECONOMY

The blue economy is about conserving ocean resources and protecting marine life. The ocean is home to important ecosystems that must be preserved, protected, and restored. Our business model is based on a deep respect for the sea’s nature and historical, economical, and cultural uses. Therefore, Hexicon’s work contributes to a cleaner, healthier, and more vibrant ecosystem. The advantageous construction of floating wind power foundations allows them to be placed far offshore in deep waters, both beyond the horizon and beyond human sight.

COLLABORATION & COEXISTENCE

The ocean is home to a diverse range of life and holds immense intrinsic value. As responsible stewards of this resource, we at Hexicon understand the importance of respecting the ocean and all of its incumbent users, including its inherent nature and wildlife. We recognize the value of collaboration and coexistence, and work closely with local and national stakeholders such as fisheries, environmental groups, and the military to maintain and improve the health of our oceans.

CARBON-FREE ENERGY SYSTEM

The energy industry has great experience in managing long-lived, large capital projects and is well positioned to participate in the sustainable offshore wind business, and that is also why we partner with traditional oil- and gas companies. Together, we can accomplish a transition from fossil energy to renewable.

FLOATING WIND POWER AND THE MARINE ECOSYSTEM

Research have shown that the floating foundations can have some positive effects on the marine ecosystem. For example, several studies show that floating wind power farms can act as artificial reefs which create protected areas under the surface, beneficial for several fish species. The sea around the wind farms can also be shielded from trawling, creating nursery areas that contribute to more sustainable fishing.

Another advantage for the marine ecosystem is that the building structure for floating wind power can be easily removed, and the marine environment restored during decommissioning and dismantling.

SUSTAINABILITY & DIVERSITY

 

Hexicon carefully evaluates its customers, suppliers, and partners to ensure that fundamental human rights are being upheld in its operations. We actively promote fair and honest competition and strive to be an ethical player in the energy industry. We support efforts that promote sustainable business practices. Our commitment extends beyond our own operations and benefits not only Hexicon but also the world. The company’s suppliers should be reliable partners who act fairly. Hexicon complies with applicable competition laws and related regulations in the countries where the company operates. There is zero tolerance for activities that violate the laws and regulations that affect the company.

 

At Hexicon, we see diversity as one of our strengths and an important part of our identity. We believe in a broad representation of different perspectives and experiences that allow us to challenge norms and achieve success together. Our knowledge-based organization and flexible structure are the key to this. However, Hexicon is actively seeking to reach a higher degree of diversity, and doing so through recruitment, developing employee competencies and promotions.
