BlueCAO projet has the aim to develop an offshore platform concept to supply energy and feed offshore aquaculture farms based on an aggregation of coaxial oscillating water columns (OWCs) assembled to a central food deposit.
- Characterization of the conventional fish feeding operation (reference case)
- Assessment of the wave energy resource for the selected location
- Calculation of an estimation of the power required for the operation of the aquaculture support platform
- Collaboration in defining the geometry of the platform.
