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.

Oceanology 2014 logo2

PLOCAN participated at the Oceanology International Forum, which is the biannual global forum where industry, academia and government share knowledge and connect with the marine technology and ocean science community, improving their strategies for measuring, exploiting, protecting and operating in the world’s oceans. The forum was held in London from 11th to 13th March 2014, with the participation of over 525 exhibitors from 35 countries, covering the whole range of marine technologies and services.

A program of conference sessions was also included in Oceanology International. It presented insights and case studies from several experts, providing excellent educational, learning and networking opportunities for all attendees. PLOCAN contributed with several communications regarding the training and operation with unmanned autonomous marine gliding vehicles, and the current results of the TROPOS project for designing multipurpose floating platforms in terms of aquaculture. PLOCAN also introduced its official entrance and role in the maritime security FP7 PERSEUS Project, which represents the main demonstration project implemented by the FP7 Security Research Theme, with 32 partners, a budget of € 43.7 M and an execution period of four years. As coordinator of the FP7 European project NeXoS, PLOCAN co-organized two workshops in order to sound out the industrial sector regarding ocean sensors requirements in the scope of the project. Another contribution to the event was the dissemination of the transnational access in the scope of the FP7 Project FixO3, which allows to Spanish and European entities to access for free to observation infrastructures in the open Ocean.

Estoc Mission 2014_1

On 4th February, technicians by the Oceanic Platform of the Canary Islands -PLOCAN- have put into operation an underwater glider in the surrounding waters of Gran Canaria for a three weeks mission, with the goal to gather oceanographic data in the North side of the archipelago.

The mission is part of the regional contribution to the international and systematic multidisciplinary marine observation strategy addressed for a better understanding of the processes and phenomena that rule internal variability of the ocean at different spatial and temporal scales with impact on global climate, as established by the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission (IOC) and the World Meteorological Organization (WMO).
