Its objectives include "to serve professional technical consultation and advice center for public administrations, for its members and for entities that require it and creating for it and for the treatment of subjects, jobs, studies, projects and plans that are deemed appropriate ". De facto, and some studies have linked up with shipbuilding, biomass and offshore wind. Capacity-building, repair, processing and recycling of ships, industrial equipment and marine artifacts, organizing conferences and training courses, and advising on the development of the curricula of schools of the profession are other objectives pursued the drivers of the association, as I said that already has fifty partners, although they expect short-term increase substantially this figure.
