''Ocean multi-use can potentially contribute to a more sustainable and efficient use of ocean resources, and provide tangible economic and environmental benefits. UNITED will promote ocean multi-use through the installation of real-world demonstration pilots, exploring technical, regulatory, economic, social and environmental requirements and impacts.''
A new documentary on German television network ZDF, titled 'SOS ocean - Help for an endangered habitat', highlights sustainable solutions to protect the world's oceans. The documentary, directed by Kristin Siebert and Tilman Wolff, focuses on projects from around the world that are committed to protecting the oceans from rising sea temperatures, pollution, and overfishing. One of the featured projects is the German pilot of the UNITED ocean multi-use project, which aims to farm sugar kelp on the seabed around offshore wind farms in the North Sea off Sylt.
A new documentary by German public broadcaster NDR, titled 'Algae cultivation between wind turbines', delves into the inner workings of the German UNITED pilot and its local awareness raising activities. In the documentary, viewers get an up-close look at the project's research facilities at Kiel University of Applied Sciences, where high school graduates are lending their support to the research efforts.
The Renewable Grid Initiative Offshore Nature 22 series aims to promote the use of offshore wind energy as a key component of the transition to a sustainable and carbon-neutral future. The series features interviews with experts in the field, including policymakers, industry leaders, and researchers. Nevejan's involvement in the series highlights the innovative approach being taken by Belgium's UNITED pilot project and the potential for similar projects to be implemented around the world.
To showcase the commercialization potential of the project, UNITED has released a series of marketing flyers highlighting its key products and services.
