The infrastructure, built over a caisson which rests on the seabed, is located 1 Nm offshore, in the NE of Gran Canaria, at 30.5 m depth and with a Surface of 5000 m2.

Main Features
  • 15 days/15 people autonomy
  • Maximum capacity of 40 people
  • Test tank of 6x6x10 m
  • Telescopic crane with a maximum capacity of 500 Kg at 5 m
  • Marine crane with a maximum capacity of 20 Tn at 9 m
  • Gantry crane of 4 Tn maximum capacity
  • Submarine communication cables
  • Underwater electrical transformer station and electrical substation
  • Connection to the electricity transmission grid
