MaRINET2 calls for renewable test applications
The European Marine Energy Centre (EMEC) is encouraging renewables developers and stakeholders to apply for access to the centre’s test facilities under the auspices of the MaRINET2 initiative.
For this second call of the initiative, projects can be focused on testing marine energy devices, components or subsystems for short to medium term durations.
“The companies that tested at EMEC through the first MaRINET project found that the learning generated from deploying in the sea has been invaluable to the development of their technologies,” said Matthew Finn, senior business development manager at EMEC.
“As well as device developers, we would also like to encourage companies from across the European supply chain to consider whether running a test and demonstration project in the sea at EMEC could add value to their products.”
Through MaRINET2, successful applications will receive free access to EMEC’s world-leading testing infrastructure which includes four offshore sites and a range of associated testing equipment. A contribution towards travel and subsistence costs for users of the initiative is also available.
MaRINET2 follows on from the first highly successful MaRINET project where over 700 weeks of access was made available to 178 projects and 800 companies over the 4.5-year initiative.
The initiative is a network of 39 partners in 13 European Countries, involving research centres and organisations who work together to progress offshore renewable energy technologies such as wave, tidal and offshore-wind.
If you’d like to discuss MaRINET2 opportunities at EMEC, please contact Matthew Finn: email@example.com or call +44(0)1856 852060.
Applications should be made by 28 February 2018 via www.marinet2.eu
