Abstract
Horizon 2020 funded project Space@Sea commenced its work on November 1, 2017 setting out to make a step in efficient use of the maritime environment. The consortium consisting of 17 European partners, aim to provide sustainable and affordable workspace at sea by developing a standardised and cost efficient modular island with low ecological impact.

Space@Sea will study the most suitable shape of the floaters to minimise the motions. As starting point triangles will be used which also allow for a modular design maximising the flexibility to add and remove deck space and applications if necessary. Offshore specialists will contribute to design a shared mooring solution in combination with a remote monitoring and sensing system to reduce installation and maintenance costs.

In Space@Sea four applications will be studied being farming, transport and logistics hub, energy hub and living. To show the potential of multi-use modular floating islands Space@Sea will conclude with the evaluation of three business cases with combinations of applications for various locations throughout Europe.
