Dutch Pilot Update – March 2024

The Dutch pilot at the site Borssele II wind park is in preparation. 

The pilot´s system performance will be tested using sensor technology (and force measurements) to validate the system and model parameters as a  

new technology for ecological monitoring will be tested in the field, which is supported by the development of image analyses. 

Mussel performance and biodiversity will be monitored; eco-friendly artificial reef development will be tested to test the feasibility in colocation with mussel sites. 

Monitoring techniques are therefore currently tested at available pilot sites, to be operational at deployment of the pilot structure. 

The mussel production system will be launched in April, after which the deployment to Borssele takes place. In Autumn the artificial reef substrate will be tested for inoculation potential in conditions in the water column.
