Abstract: The global population is growing and the demand for food and energy is steadily increasing. Coastal space all over the world becomes increasingly limited and near-shore resources are often already heavily exploited. The use of offshore regions may provide new opportunities, but also involves major challenges such as the development of designs and technologies suitable for offshore condition. The floating TROPOS 'Green & Blue' modular multi-use platform concept introduced in this chapter is especially designed for offshore conditions and provides solutions for the problems and obstacles involved in "moving offshore". The Green & Blue platform concept integrates fish and algae aquaculture with a wind farm. The floating multi-use approach allows for platform operation in deep waters and the promotion of synergies such as joint logistics, shared infrastructure and services, thereby making the use of offshore resources viable and profitable.
