The Floating Food Farm of Floating Future

Growing crops on water

Each year MARIN offers a number of basin slots to innovative SMEs free of charge. One of the selected projects was the Floating Food
Farm of Floating Future, which is a concept for carrying out food production on a flexible floating structure. Innovative, highly relevant
and hydrodynamically very interesting! No wonder this pioneering concept was selected.
