PLOCAN is co-ordinating the DESPESCA Project to acquire scientific and technical know-how about artisanal fishing with traps and large fishing nets by assessing the survival of by-catch after time in nurseries installed at sea.
Almost one hundred industrial engineers from the Colegio de Ingenieros Industriales de Santa Cruz de Tenerife (COIITF) and the Colegio Oficial de Ingenieros Industriales de Canarias Oriental (COIICO) visited the PLOCAN facilities in Taliarte, Telde, to celebrate their patron saint, Saint Joseph.
PLOCAN took part in the 24th edition of Oceanology International, held in London between the 13th and 15th of March, the world benchmark biannual forum on oceanic monitoring technologies, a clearly emerging sector in the marine-maritime context and the strategy of Blue Growth.
Norwegian company Tveter Power has started trials of a pumping device driven by wave power on the PLOCAN test site. This project is funded by Innovation Norway through Norwegian company RW Power A/S.
