MUSICA Project visits Oinousses

By vasso papadopoulou on April 15, 2024 in MUSICA News Articles

The MUSICA Project, in a recent visit to Oinousses island, made the necessary measurements at the location where the multi-purpose platform (MUP) will be joined with the land-based electricity infrastructure, in order to proceed with the procedures for its construction. These measurements were preceded by a meeting with the Mayor of Oinousso, who, warmly welcoming the Musica team, once again declared his support for the project, pointing out the need to connect the platform with the island. The innovative MUSICA project has undertaken the design and development of a Multi-Purpose Platform, which will generate electricity from wind, waves and the sun to boost the energy supply in the Oinousses area. The area was specifically chosen by the European Union for a trial solution to problems such as power and water outages that regularly face small island and coastal areas. The Multipurpose Platform (MUP) uses renewable energy sources, which is important in the times we live in.
