COVE South Marine Terminal
Since 2018, COVE has been serving to advance our ocean economy in Nova Scotia. This collaborative place is innovative, but it’s also dynamic—it’s always evolving in order to further support tenant business growth. A recapitalization of the south marine terminal and a new multi-user marine testing platform (Stella Maris) are important steps forward for COVE.
This year, we began the project to improve 350 metres of wharf space at the south terminal and complete a full wharf recapitalization with full amenities, enabling access for vessels up to 150 metres, along with an additional 60 metres of floating docks for smaller vessels at the small boat facility, land-side access and increased utility infrastructure support. And we enabled the deployment of Stella Maris, a new undersea multi-use platform (the first in Eastern Canada!) that will enable rapid, cost-effective underwater testing to support product development.
Investment in COVE supports a strong ocean technology ecosystem, accelerates and supports the commercialization of good ideas, inspires participation, collaboration and innovation, supports new start-ups and company growth, and contributes to Nova Scotia’s reputation as a global centre of ocean innovation excellence.
