H2OCEAN

Development of a wind-wave power open-sea platform equipped for hydrogen generation with support for multiple users of energy

The aim of the H2OCEAN project is the development of an offshore platform which will harvest wind and wave power, using part of the energy on-site for multiple applications – including a multi-trophic aquaculture farm, and convert on-site the excess energy into hydrogen that can be stored and shipped to shore as green energy carrier. In the sub-project desalination the main task of IGB will be optimizing RO-membranes with low-fouling properties.
