The Spanish Association of Marine and Off-shore Engineers (AINE, as it is known in Spanish) has organised the VIII PAT18 Technical Conference, the Marine Renewable Energy working group (ENERMAR) for the 29th and 30th of June, to be held in the PLOCAN shore offices in Taliarte (Telde), on the island of Gran Canaria, entitled “The sea and renewable energies. The contribution of Marine and Off-shore Engineering”.
The ENERMAR conference is aimed at presenting the opportunities available to local industry for opening up new markets; opportunities that arise from the ambitious programmes for rolling out these clean energies in Spain and throughout the world. The aim of the conference is to act as yet another contribution to meeting what is a vital challenge for our country.
Karen Kennedy, commercial counsellor in the Canadian Embassy in Spain, met with a large group of institutions and companies from the marine-maritime sector in the PLOCAN offices, and took part in a round table on the opportunities for co-operation between Canadian and Canary Island companies and institutions within the framework of the Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement between the European Union and Canada (CETA).
