Our Experience

Navigating New Frontiers: WavEC's Expanding Horizons.

 

WavEC explores innovative applications in the Blue Economy, venturing into diverse sectors such as floating solar PV, green hydrogen, offshore aquaculture, ecosystem restoration, carbon capture, water desalination, and exploring multiuse applications.

Intends to explore the potential for restoration actions in several coastal areas on the Arctic-Atlantic scale with special attention to vulnerable habitats, including kelp forests, rocky bottoms of shallow waters, reefs of oysters and soft-bed benthic habitats - all connected by the coastal context in which they exist, their sensitivity to disturbance, and their role as key drivers of biodiversity in the ocean.
