The accessibility of this type of technology will allow, according to Grupo Arbulu, "great advances in marine technology at a global level and will accelerate the development of innovative solutions focused on efficiency and sustainability". It also highlights that with the signing of this agreement, new lines of collaboration will emerge that will allow progress in the development of innovative and sustainable solutions adapted to the current and future needs of the sector.
