An expanding East Anglian technology company is showcasing its services – and new name – at a major international event in Amsterdam.
Nesspoint specialises in communication, tracking and monitoring solutions for offshore renewables – particularly wind farms – as well as ports, harbours and defence.
The company, formerly Vissim Renewables, recently rebranded to Nesspoint, taking its name from its location at the UK’s most easterly landfall in Lowestoft, Suffolk.
It is sharing a display place on the East of England Energy Zone’s stand at Offshore Energy in Amsterdam on October 8-9, which attracts 12,000 visitors, 550 stand holders and 1,000 delegates.
The EEEZ stand features 10 exhibitors, who share a prominent space, presentation area, marketing support, expert export advice, and introductions to potential overseas clients and markets.
Nesspoint will be featuring services ranging from maritime surveillance, vessel management, personal location and work permits to communications including Digital Mobile Radio, where it is partnered with Motorola.
Senior sales engineer Lee Cheung said: “A key focus for us is to raise awareness of our new branding – and our expanding range of services in a growing number of sectors.
“We have been to events like this previously as Vissim Renewables, but this is the first time we have participated in a shared stand and plan to schedule many customer meetings to demonstrate our new services. We are looking forward to meeting existing clients as well potential new ones.”
Nesspoint already works with major energy companies such as EDF, Scottish and Southern Energy, Equinor and Innogy. It has also provided support for major offshore windfarms including SSE’s Beatrice off Scotland and Iberdrola’s Wikinger off Germany.
The company has a new maritime coordination centre at the OrbisEnergy complex at Lowestoft, which will be used for training as well as offering Marine Coordination as a service. It also has a secure “private cloud” data centre in the UK.
The company, which has grown over the past five years, is also involved with R&D renewables projects, and works in other sectors including ports and harbours, oil and gas and defence.
Mr Cheung said the company was an solutions integrator which prided itself on scouring the marketplace to ensure “we pick what is technically best for the client.“
