  19. 19. 29 / 70
  20. 20. Test site for ocean energy converters 1000 NLocation: East ofGran CanariaSurface: 40 km2 ≤ 30 mDistance from thecoast: 1-12km 32 – 40 mDepth: 30-1000m 42 m 500 ≥ 44 m
  21. 21. Test site for ocean energy converters Ocean energy converters and associated components  Competitive advantages: • Appropriate waves and wind • Offshore wind and wave energy • Port infrastructure and logistics converters • Operation during most of the year • Structural components • Connectivity to the grid • Mooring systems • Wide range of bathymetries • Clean energy vectors • R&D infrastructures and services • Costs and business opportunities Integral Project Management • Environmental data (observatory) • Local market for electricity • Rise R&D funding • Weather conditions • Administrative permits, certifications • Environmental protection guarantee • Link with other providers of services • Transportation, customs
