The Oceanic Platform of the Canary Islands
(PLOCAN) is a Governmental Consortium with the objective to
build and operate an offshore infrastructure to facilitate the deep
sea research and speed up the technology associated. This
Consortium is co-funded between the Spanish Ministry of
Science and Innovation and the Autonomous Government of the
Canary Islands. The infrastructure consists of an oceanic
platform placed in depths around 40 meters, close to the
continental slope and 4 kilometers offshore, in the archipelago of
the Canary Islands.
