Offshore Test Site, Proeftuin op de Noordzee

Via Proeftuin op de Noordzee, Gemeente Den Haag is involved in multiple projects; 

Within the Data Buoy project a data buoy is being designed and developed. The goal of this project is to generate a reference point for North Sea data by creating a specially equipped buoy that will capture data series of different parameters at our Offshore Test Site.

To gain a better understanding of the possibilities for sustainable offshore seaweed cultivation, Aqitec installed a special buoy on the North Sea called The Azifarm. New technology is needed to safely and affordably farm seaweed at sea.

Within the Dutch Wave Power project a technology is being developed for converting sustainable wave energy into electricity.
