According to the Concession Contract of the Portuguese Pilot Zone, ENONDAS, SA is making the public disclosure of the Study of Geophysical Characterization and Access Regulation of Portuguese Pilot Zone. These documents were submitted to public discussion during one month, until October 12th 2014. The documents can be downloaded from this website, from the following "links":


Geophysical Description of the Portuguese Pilot Zone - Specific areas of focus

ü       Bathymetry and Morphology

ü     Sedimentary Structures

ü     Mapping of sediments' cover

ü       Creation of baseline for water quality and sediments

ü     Detection of objects

ü      Oceanography

ü       Sediment dynamics in coastal areas and access corridors

ü     Navigation security

ü     Integration and presentation of georeferenced data

It has been concluded, based on the data obtained, that the Portuguese Pilot Zone has high energy potential with extensive exposure to the oceanographic elements, especially wind and waves.
