Test site

23km2 sea trials area

A 23km2 offshore test site for marine technologies of multiple natures, with access to a unique ecosystem, to accelerate knowledge, sustainability and responsible use of the marine environment in line with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). It enables and contributes to the acceleration in the development of technologies and knowledge in the marine environment, with observation systems and open ocean, in real conditions.

It is equipped with an electrical and communications infrastructure, consisting of two medium-voltage submarine cables (with one connection each) of 5MW each, which allow the connection of technologies that use natural resources to generate electricity. These cables allow the energy generated to be delivered to the island’s electricity transmission grid.

Competitive access to the Testbed is managed through the distributed ICTS MARHIS.
