Learn more about the business opportunities for Multi-Use Platforms at Sea

Marine South East held a constructive workshop at Seawork 2018 to explore business opportunities for Multi-Use Platforms at sea under the auspices of two projects being coordinated by Marine South East; ENTROPI (Enabling Technologies and Roadmaps for Offshore Platform Innovation)and OPEC (Offshore Platform for Energy Competitiveness).

The event attracted interested parties who contributed useful feedback on potential business opportunities and how their organisations might contribute to the further development of this exciting concept.

Of particular interest was the presentation by Silvia Martin Imholz from ENTROPI partner PLOCAN who are a research and innovation organisation based in the Canary Islands.

PLOCAN have prepared an informative video describing the work they are doing on the oceanic platform of the Canary Islands and opportunities for offshore Multi-Use Platforms.

To view the video follow the link:

Full details of both Offshore Platforms projects can be found at where you can also sign up to be kept informed of future events, project findings and business opportunities.

More findings from the ENTROPI project will be presented to international audiences in Porto, Portugal and Las Palmas, Canary Islands this Autumn.
