Webinar on floating wind energy

By September 21, 2020 November 16th, 2020 Uncategorized

PLOCAN is organising a webinar on “Floating wind energy tested in the Canary Islands” with the participation of the CEO and co-founder of X1Wind, Alex Raventós, the technical director of the Spanish Wind Energy Association and responsible for the AEE Offshore Wind Working Group, Tomás Romagosa, and the director of the Functional Area of Industry and Energy of the Government Delegation in the Canary Islands, Eloísa Moreno Talaya.

The webinar will be presented and moderated by PLOCAN CEO, José Joaquín Hernández Brito, and will take place at 11am Canary Islands time (12pm CET) on Thursday 24th September. To register, please click on the following link.

PLOCAN’s Test Site hosts the first offshore wind turbine prototype and enables technology developers to have an environment that allows them to demonstrate and generate experimental evidence.

The activities carried out at the test site are designed to complete the cycle of knowledge by transforming scientific excellence and know-how into functional technology, assembling technologies for use in cost-effective business models and developing innovative standards and procedures in line with the scientific and social values demanded in the twenty-first century.

In Spain, and in the Canary Islands in particular, far-reaching efforts are being made to transform knowledge into economic diversification in the short and medium term. These efforts are rewarded by the creation of jobs and economic activity, a solution to the challenges of a society which needs to find new ways of creating economic and social value, new products and services in keeping with the times and the state of the art.

The harnessing of marine energy, and the challenge of an ecological transition through renewable natural resources in line with the goals of the European Green Deal and of the 2030 Agenda of the United Nations, offer the Canary Islands an unparalleled opportunity to be a European test bed; a place where innovations are developed, where new regulations are forged in tune with the times and where the benefits of the sea are reaped.
