1. GreenHull – Green technologies for the ecological cleaning of biofouling on hulls in the Northern Adriatic Sea
COMET Cluster is partner of Greenhull “Green technologies for the ecological cleaning of biofouling on hulls in the Northern Adriatic Sea”, supported by the Interreg V-A Italy-Slovenia 2014-2020 Cooperation Programme.
PROJECT OBJECTIVE | GreenHull aims to solve the problem of pollution in the Programme Area, by defining procedures to control, monitor and manage the cross-border marine waters. By developing two pilot green technologies , the purpose is to clean biofouling on boat hulls, thus consequently improving the performance of ships and reducing the introduction of non-indigenous species into the environment.
COMET CLUSTER’S ROLE | COMET Cluster is co-responsible for engineering and prototyping one of the two technologies: an underwater robotic system (ROV) equipped with a sampling unit and cleaning unit to remove biofouling from the hulls.
PROJECT BUDGET | This project is supported by the Interreg V-A Italy-Slovenia Cooperation Programme, funded by the European Regional Development Fund.
Total budget: € 882,168.83
ERDF contribution: € 749,843.50
DURATION| 24 MONTHS (03.2020 – 02.2022)

COMET, A EUROPEAN-CERTIFIED CLUSTER
In 2018, COMET obtained the following prestigious European-recognised certification: “Cluster Management Excellence Label BRONZE – Striving for Cluster Excellence”. The certification was issued following an interview, conducted by the European Secretariat for Cluster Analysis (ESCA) of VDI/VDE Innovation, which analysed 36 indicators related to structure, management, services and governance, in addition to contacts, interaction within the cluster and the obtained results.
The ESCA benchmarking is a strategic tool for assessing the European-level positioning of the COMET Cluster and planning future activities.
