The award in the category “innovation and new products” was won by nvisionist and the pioneering application nvbird, at this year’s “Sustainable – Innovative and Responsible Entrepreneurship” Awards of the Athens Chamber of Tradesmen.

The award was realized by the former Minister of Tourism and MP of Nea Demokratia, Harry Theocharis who stated: “This event is a celebration of the responsibility and ingenuity of the greek entrepreneur. I am glad that we are giving awards to greek startups and I wish Vassilis Orfanos to internationalize his effort.
The award was received for the nvisionist by the special adviser of the company, Vassilis Orfanos, who noted that “the top distinction of nvisionist and nvbird in this year’s “Sustainable – Innovative and Responsible Entrepreneurship” awards of the Professional Chamber of Athens is a special honor for the nvisionist family.
At the same time, however, it is also an additional reward for the effort we are making to highlight the added value of a greek innovative company in the global heavy wind energy industry. Our company has managed to gain the respect of the giants of the global wind energy community and with the nvbird system to give goodwill to it.
Our goal is for nvbird to become the global reference system in preventing birds from impacting wind turbines. It is our commitment to extroversion that leads us to success”.
