From 11th to 13th November, the annual event Business2Sea (2019) was held in Alfândega Porto Congress Centre, located at the historic city centre of Porto. B2Sea is an event promoted by Fórum Oceano since 2011 that seeks to promote the dissemination of projects and activities related to the theme of the Sea to public authorities, companies, universities and R&D centers and associations, national and foreign.
This year the MELOA project had a large presence in the B2Sea with its WAVY floaters and partners from the consortium. Here we had the opportunity to demonstrate the entire WAVY family and their operating mode.
Also during this exhibition WAVY's floats were launched on the Douro River by invited students, of the For-Mar Fisheries and Sea Professional Training Center. In parallel, the audience present at the exhibition, was able to follow/see the position of the WAVY's in real time, using the tools developed in the MELOA project.
