EMEC opens up free access opportunity though MARINET2
Tuesday, Jan 09, 2018
The second call for MaRINET2 applications opens next Monday, 15th January 2018.

As a partner in the MaRINET2 initiative, the European Marine Energy Centre (EMEC) is encouraging wind, wave and tidal energy developers, supply chain companies and research organisations to apply for access to the centre’s test facilities.

Projects can be focused on testing marine energy devices, components or subsystems for short to medium term durations.

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.

The call is targeted at companies developing systems and components for the offshore energy sector, including wind, wave and tidal energy technologies.

Applications should be made by 28th February 2018 via www.marinet2.eu

Matthew Finn, Senior Business Development Manager at EMEC, discusses the opportunity:

“MaRINET provides emerging technology developers with an excellent route to testing their machines at EMEC and working with the Orkney supply chain who have unprecedented experience of marine energy deployments. 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.

“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.”
