Innovative multi-use prototype combining offshore renewable energy and aquaculture in the Atlantic Basin

AquaWind is a research and innovative project, with the purpose of demonstrating a co-located and multi-use integrated solution. This would entail integrating an innovative approach to finfish aquaculture with an existing maritime renewable energy production Wind to Power prototype.

What we want to achieve

Joint activities for digitalisation

AquaWind will show how the joint activity may be digitalized to be remotely operated in the same marine space with different fish species and how one activity might effect the other.

Road map for MU initiatives

The project will offer a road map for addressing the legal and regulatory challenges necessary for the effective execution of MU initiatives, maximizing benefits, and easing communication with past and existing EU-funded projects.

Real data for coimbined activities

Real data will be provided by AquaWind to show the MU proposal’s economic, environmental, and social viability.

MU technology

Combining Wind to Power (W2Power) prototype with an innovative finfish aquaculture solution.

Meet our Project Partners

The consortium project is made up of 9 partners across different countries in the EU (France, Spain, and Portugal).

Joining Forces for a Greener Future

At AquaWind, we believe that collaboration is key to achieving a more sustainable future. Through this approach, AquaWind hopes to shift the focus away from exclusive resource rights towards the inclusive sharing of resources by one or more uses. This is a fundamental transition that can have far-reaching implications for the sustainability and competitiveness of the EU aquaculture and wind energy production industry.

One of the key goals of AquaWind is to achieve an inclusive process that unites the efforts of a multidisciplinary stakeholder consortium in the Atlantic basin, including R&D facilities, businesses, a regional authority, and a maritime cluster from three EU member states (Spain, France, and Portugal).

|PROYECTO AQUAWIND|▪ El carácter innovador de los ensayos que se realizan en las infraestructuras que ofrece #PLOCAN sirve para impulsar el desarrollo de la normativa y regulación necesaria para afrontar los desafíos futuros en ocupación del espacio marino. Un ejemplo de ello es AquaWind. ▪ Con este proyecto se probará la compatibilidad sostenible de una plataforma multiuso conformada por un aerogenerador marino flotante con una jaula de acuicultura acoplada y se tratará de optimizar sus resultados. ▪ Por este motivo trabajamos con las administraciones públicas, para buscar un marco normativo en el que regularizar los ensayos.#ICTSNews #AquaWind #aquaculture #offshore #windenergy #multiplesolution #multiuse #renewableenergy #floatingwindtechnology #CanaryIslands #MaritimeSpatialPlanning ...
