Abstract: The Oceanic Platform of the Canary Islands (PLOCAN) is a Governmental Consortium aimed to build and operate an off-shore infrastructure to facilitate the deep sea research and speed up the technology associated. This Consortium is overseen by the Spanish Ministry of Science and Innovation and the Autonomous Government of the Canary Islands.

The infrastructure consists of an oceanic platform placed in depths between 50-100 meters, close to the continental slope and four kilometers off the coast of Gran Canaria, in the archipelago of the Canary Islands. Construction is planned to start during the first months of 2011 being finished in mid-year 2012.
