In collaboration with the company Z-Bridge BV, Hydrauvision has developed a second innovative way of switching from a moving ship at sea to an offshore construction. The system is called Bring to Work (B2W).
Traas Pest Control from ‘s Gravenpolder
New laws and regulations do not make it easy to fight rats outdoors. This also entails many risks for children and pets, especially in urban areas and in parks. For that reason, Traas has developed the rat hotel concept, which has now also been successfully applied in practice.
Hello Container from Goes

The professional jury, headed by Provincial Executive Jo-Annes de Bat, will visit the nominated candidates on a company visit. In addition, students at the HZ University of Applied Sciences research the innovations and process them into a report that is used by the jury to arrive at a final assessment in addition to the company visits.

In addition to the jury prize, a public prize will be awarded. During the voting period from October 21 to November 4 you can vote on the website of Omroep Zeeland.
