PLOCAN to design marine area for wave energy prototypes

PLOCAN will aid in the design of a marine area for installing prototypes that harness wave energy to supply electricity to the desalination plants managed by the Gran Canaria Water Board as part of the DESAL+ project.

The objective of the project is to create and consolidate a joint “Living Lab” platform, conceived as a research infrastructure of excellence in the field of water desalination and related areas, highlighting the connection between desalinated water and energy.

The PLOCAN study will include an analysis of the oceanographic conditions of the marine environment in the pilot study area and a revision of the legislation governing the sector concerning harnessing marine energies for self-consumption.

The DESAL+ consortium, led by the Canary Island Institute of Technology, consists of fifteen entities from the Canary Islands, Madeira, Cape Verde and Mauritania.

The DESAL+ project is co-funded by the Regional Co-operation Programme INTERREG V A Spain-Portugal (MAC 2014-2020) / Cross-border Co-operation.
