The Blue Growth strategy was laid out by the European Union (EU) in 2012 [1], with a view to realize sustainable development of the blue economy - based on the oceans, seas and coasts. Along the lines of the Blue Growth strategy, the present work investigates the performance of a multi-purpose platform (MPP) for use in an offshore aquaculture farm. The elements of offshore wind and fish feed storage are integrated in the same platform to support the energy demands of closely co-located aquaculture farms, at a location off the Scottish coast, with a water depth of 81 m. The work presented herein is part of the UK-China Investigation of the novel challenges of an integrated offshore multi-purpose platform (INNOMPP) project [2] (EPSRC Grant no. EP/R007497/1).
