The Offshore Coalition project based on Plone CMS.

Offshore Coalition for Energy and Nature (OCEaN) is an alliance of the wind industry with non-governmental organizations and transmission system operators with the aim of cooperating on the sustainable use of offshore wind energy while ensuring harmony with nature conservation and healthy marine ecosystems.

Abstract-Technology supported the Team as a technical consultant and service provider. With our decade of experience in working with the Open Source Content Management System (CMS) Plone, we delivered a fully customized, modern, flexible, and easy to use platform.

The benefits of choosing Plone as Open Source CMS:

  • Cost-effective
  • Portability
  • Support from the community and security.

Our deliverables in this project:

  • Offshore practices Database sorted by different criteria
  • A media database
  • Working Group Area - The Coalition is organized into three topical working groups:
    1. Data for planning offshore wind development
    2. Marine Spatial Planning
    3. Impacts of infrastructure on marine ecosystems and stakeholder engagement.
  • A protected members-area entails information related to the work of the OCEaN's working groups: documents and files related to previous work, as well as ongoing activities
  • A stakeholder visualization Map (coming soon)

What can we do for you?

Our case studies are not the result of a package solution: they're based on a method that adds value to the software we design. We look at the projects from a different perspective, that's why we can help you to improve them.
