The Macaronesia Network for the Transfer of Inter-Regional and Multi-disciplinary Knowledge and Technologies to protect, guard and monitor cetaceans in the marine environment and analyse and sustainably manage the associated tourism activity (MARCET) held its kick-off meeting in the Elder Museum of Science and Technology of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria on Thursday the 17th of March.

Students from the qualification course as a Specialist in Marine Energies, certified jointly by the University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria (ULPGC) and companies Raley Estudios Costeros and Hexia Formación, visited the PLOCAN facilities, along with two of their teachers.

The main objective of the visit was to show students the land-side facilities of the infrastructure, as well as the scientific-technological operational and training capabilities, lines of work and activities that PLOCAN is currently engaged in, as a potential professional opportunity in the area of marine renewable energies. All these aspects turned out to be of interest to the students on the Specialist in Marine Energies course, which is comprised of five modules: Appraisal of Marine Energies, Marine Converters, Auxiliary Facilities, Maintenance Management and Feasibility Studies.
