As part of their “Defining a Decade” retrospective for the MUN Gazette, Kim Thornhill – Marine Institute’s marketing manager – profiled the development of the Holyrood Marine Base since it’s opening in 2010.
The base was designed as a proof-of-concept for an ocean innovation facility, where researchers and companies could pursue ocean technology projects and MI could offer advanced education and training programs for the growing oceans sector.
“We identified Holyrood as an ideal location to become the portal to the sea for Memorial University,” said Mr. Blackwood. “It offered a deep water, sheltered harbour with near-Arctic conditions for research, training and equipment testing.”
