Stand 18: OOS Group B.V./ OOS International B.V. / OOS SMF B.V.

OOS SMF B.V., part of OOS International, is involved in the development of a semi-submersible unit for the cultivation of mussels in the North Sea. Mussels are traditionally grown in sheltered waters such as the Oosterschelde and Waddenzee. However, due to changes in natural conditions and regulations, the production of mussels has decreased. Growing mussels at sea is a solution to maintain and/or increase production. By applying “green” technologies such as solar, wind and tidal energy, OOS also strives to grow the mussels without CO2 emissions.

OOS will start a pilot next year and based on the results of this pilot, a definitive (semi-submersible) unit will be developed and put into production for mussel farmers. OOS wants to use its technical knowledge in the field of offshore technology to create an innovative solution for the mussel sector and growers.

ReShore’s product is the LIVING breakwater– a nature-inclusive floating breakwater– on which mussels, oysters and seaweed are grown to contribute to improved wave attenuation, environmental restoration and food production. ReShore has tested its proof of concept as part of the MKB concept testing program at MARIN and is currently participating in the StartLife Acceleration program at Wageningen University and Research. We are joining the conference to explore the opportunities for demonstrating the LIVING breakwater in a pilot project and are looking for project partners to do so.
