Floating structures for the next generation of ocean industries
SFI BLUES is a centre for research-based innovation enabling Norwegian industry to create new types of floating structures for renewable energy, aquaculture and coastal infrastructure
Due to the ongoing transition in the world's energy mix to meet the goals stated in the Paris agreement, the need for clean energy is now global. Changes in diets and an increase in the world's population also generate a need for safe and healthy food. Further, in a changing climate, requests for increased mobility, as well as shortage on area, introduce a need for resilient infrastructure in coastal waters for transportation as well as industrial and residential developments. SFI BLUES will develop new knowledge and technology that will contribute to solving the several industrial and societal challenges the world is facing.
