Ecofys Bets on a Wind Power and Seaweed Biofuel Mashup

Ecofys Bets on a Wind Power and Seaweed Biofuel Mashup

Aside from renewable energy and environmental benefits, the test site will also demonstrate how well the hardware of seaweed cultivation weathers offshore conditions. The test module is a 20 by 20 meter site delineated by steel cables, located in a former sand mining area about ten kilometers west of the Dutch island Texel. The cables are anchored in place about two meters under the surface and they support nets, to which several species of seaweed native to the North Sea have been attached. Ecofys expects the first harvest to be ready as early as this June and the project will continue for approximately one year.
