CEEMP validated by the DGCIS for the platform call for projects
A funding of 5 M euros will be allocated for the Centre for Testing and Expertise in Deep Sea (CEEMP) to promote the development of underwater systems and equipment.
The Centre for Testing and Expertise in Deep Sea Platform was definitely selected in mid-June during the call for projects by the DGCIS (General Direction of Competitiveness of the Industry and Services). It will benefit from support from FUL, FEDER and local authorities for a total amount of 5 M euros. This test centre will permit all those who develop underwater systems, engines and equipment of the PACA region, but also national and international ones to carry out true-to-life tests and demonstrations, by using two underground stations positioned at a depth of 1 300 and 2 400 meters respectively and equipped with power and data umbilical cords.
