About CalamarPark

CalamarPark is an independent ‘Initiative for Studies on Aquanautic‘. We develop the European Underwater Research Station as a new generation of modular, serial underwater habitats for human occupation with emphasis on human scale and habitability. The facility and its mobile module will be open to several interdisciplinary applications, such as underwater archaeology, specialized tourism, space training missions etc.
CalamarPark is a branch of Cabrito Consulting in Germany.

Latest Draft

In opposite to other underwater habitats of the past CalamarPark’s new draft is of truly habitable size, modular and semi-mobile. The design covers all Modi Operandi (construction, towing, lowering, securing, lifting).

‘realistic, cost effective and scaleable – trifecta of intelligent design’

Liz Taylor, President of DOER Marine

In fact, the modular design does not only present the possibility to adjust future modules according to current mission goals and therefore offers long-term planning. It also reduces the costs of the initial construction and allows to extend the structure according to specific budgets.

Since the modules are constructed on multi-purpose platforms, the habitat can be detached, lifted to the surface and towed to a different location, if necessary. The final draft represents an optimized ratio between cost and function. It is planned to act as a hub, providing air, energy and water to similar endeavors of different design in its close vicinity, turning the location into an underwater technology park.

CalamarPark surveyed and defined twelve potential user sectors in three categories. The result of these surveys led to the concept of a semi-permanent modular underwater habitat, that is designed to cover all requirements of theses sectors.

With the participation of diverse sectors, the aim is to achieve long term financial sustainability and draw more attention to the marine environment, thus creating an important tool that contributes to marine conservation. Key words of the project are longevity, transparency, inclusion, environmental protection, research, STEM promotion and habitability.
