The WELCOME project specifically brings forward one of the strategic lines of PLOCAN, putting into operation the expected test-bed. The advance is possible because in this case is intended to test a device to feed a set of met-ocean observations; thereby, trying to provide solutions to one of the basic problems of observation in the ocean, since power limiting is the factor controlling the number of observations, frequen- cy and information that can be transmitted.
The BARCELONA CONSORCI ESCOLA INDUSTRIAL (CEIB) performed the modelling of the buoyant APC-PISYS System and the requested technical and scientific assessment. ANORTEC manufactured and integrated the mechanisms and subsystems based on the PIPO SYSTEM’S design and managed the installation.
