Oceanic Platform of the Canary Islands - Last News

Inauguration/opening of the Wave Energy Generation Demonstration Plant

Inauguration/opening of the Wave Energy Generation Demonstration Plant

The Secretary General for Science, Technology and Innovation, of the Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness, Maria Luisa Poncela, stated that the UNDIGEN project of electrical generation is significant and is an example of public-private cooperation; totally in line with the EU expectation, and what society requires: an environmentally sustainable energy supply.

Maria Luisa Poncela opened the wave energy generating plant deployed in the PLOCAN test bed, during an event celebrated with the participation of the UNDIGEN project coordinator, Luis Fernando Gavela Alvarez, the director of PLOCAN, Octavio Llinás, the deputy ministers of Presidency and of Environment of the Canary Islands Government, Jorge Rodríguez Marín and Guacimara Medina, the director general of the Canarian Agency for Research, Innovation and Information Society, Juan Ruiz, the deputy of the Government of Spain delegation in Las Palmas, Luis Molina, and Telde Mayor, María del Carmen Castellano, among other authorities.

PLOCAN succeeds to deploy a new mooring at the ESTOC station

Estoc Fondeo 2014

The Oceanic Platform of the Canary Islands (PLOCAN) successfully concluded the mooring of the meteorological and oceanographic instrumentation for observation at ESTOC (European Station Time-series Ocean Canaries), located to the north of the Canary Islands. The mooring represents a technological and scientific effort for PLOCAN, as the preparation and ocean deployment have been entirely carried out by this consortium. The data taken will be transmitted via satellite in real time.

This deep mooring is fixed at 3.624m and it is composed of a surface buoy which includes the meteorological as well as the surface oceanographic sensors to measure physical and biochemical parameters in the ocean surface. It also counts on a frame in sub-surface waters (about 100m), which brings together sensors to monitor physical and biochemical variables in the water column.

PLOCAN participated in the OCEANS 2014 Conference and organized a TROPOS meeting in Taiwan

Tropos Meetind Taiwan

PLOCAN participated at the OCEANS’14 Conference, a forum with the goals of bridging the distance between scientists and engineers and advancing the interdisciplinary fields of ocean science and technology. The conference was hosted by the IEEE Oceanic Engineering Society (OES) and Marine Technology Society (MTS) on April 7-10, 2014, in Taipei, Taiwan. The conference theme of Oceans Regeneration promotes scientific methods and research to address environmental concerns about the preservation and betterment of our living Oceans. PLOCAN contributed with two communications of the two FP7 European projects which is coordinating at the moment: TROPOS which presentation was related to the environmental aspects of designing multi-purpose offshore platforms, and NeXoS, which introduced the objectives of the project in developing ocean sensor systems for a more cost-efficient assessment of ocean waters, ecosystems, and fisheries management.
