Space@Sea has a flying start

Horizon 2020 project Space @Sea has had a flying start. Flowing on the momentum of interest in the media and industry for the topic of multi-use offshore platforms, Space@Sea has received a lot of attention. At the kick off meeting in November 2017 the energy was buzzing. With high expectations comes a large responsibility which is felt by the project.

During the first few months of the project we have been focussing on setting the collaboration straight by finding the dependencies between tasks and the data and information flow. Partners working on the hydrodynamic design of the floater and anchoring have started with an evaluation of the numerical models. At the same time the requirements from the applications have been collected and are being brought together.

On March 7, 2018, MARIN hosted Floating Future seminar where Space@Sea coordinator Maarten Flikkema presented the project. A total of 140 international partners attended the seminar which shows the great interest for this topic. Feedback from partners support the direct of the Space@Sea project, but also shows where the challenges lie ahead. Amongst others, Space@Sea partners Deltasync also presented their work on living at sea at the conference.

Work in the coming months will focus on further updating the numerical models and performing first model tests which will be used for validation. In the application cases the first design cycles are started even though not all details of the floater design are known yet. Before this design step can be made, WP 1 will study the various business cases for which the demonstrations will be made. 

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No. 774253.

The SPACE@SEA project spans three years, running from November 1st, 2017 to November 1st, 2020.
