On March 28th, in the SET Award Ceremony - the climax of the SET Tech Festival, Hyperion was recognized as a winner of SET Awards in the Building & Construction category. It is also our honor to become one of the 15 SET finalists, selected from over 400 applications and 63 countries, to present our ideas to an international jury of experts at the SET Tech Festival.
Hyperion Robotics designs, engineers and manufactures sustainable concrete structures, helping clients save time, money and embodied carbon. By bringing together 3D printing technology, automation and circular economy principles, our products enable 75 percent savings of material usage and cut construction’s carbon footprint by up to 90 percent.
This award is another opportunity for us to reaffirm our commitment to moving the construction industry toward a zero-waste and carbon-free future. It also comes as a timely reminder to the sector that there is still a lot of work to be done to achieve the ambitious goal of climate neutrality by 2030. The energy and utilities sector can see a significant impact with our 3D printing technology since we can help them build their infrastructure projects faster, more efficiently and with a very small carbon footprint.
“Throughout SET Tech Festival, we are inspired to learn from the most innovative energy start-ups from different parts of the world and share our ideas and ambitions about 3D printing technology in front of international startups, investors and prominent guests from the world of politics such as Anja Hajduk, State Secretary at the Federal Ministry of Economics and Climate Protection, Jennifer Morgan, State Secretary and Special Representative for International Climate Policy at the Federal Foreign Office, and Mark Van Stiphout, Deputy Head of the Unit for Research, Innovation, Competitiveness and Digitalisation at the European Commission. This fuels our motivations to keep pushing boundaries to decarbonize construction and ensure that industry leaders employ innovation as the clear path to their decarbonisation goals. And at the moment, we are already working with large energy companies and TSOs in Europe and around the world, helping them achieve these ambitious targets.”
