DTOceanPlus Welcomes Three New Members

DTOceanPlus partners recently met for a General Assembly in Edinburgh Centre for Carbon Innovation and validated the integration of 3 new partners into the project.

The meeting was organised by Wave Energy Scotland and the University of Edinburgh.

The first year of the project is reflected in the publication of the technical requirements of the 4 advanced design tools for tidal and wave energy systems that will constitute the new release of the suite called DTOcean.

3 new partners are:

Energias de Portugal, operator in the electricity sector in Europe, present in the Iberian Peninsula, Latin America, Africa and Macao.

Orbital Marine Power, specialized in floating tidal stream turbines since the company’s formation in 2002 in Orkney, Scotland.

Sabella, a French tidal and ocean stream turbine developer, supplying reliable turnkey energy solutions worldwide since 2008.

These new arrivals have also just been validated by the European Union.

DTOceanPlus, through the H2020 program, is part of the initiative launched by the European Commission concerning free access to scientific publications and research data.

The open source license under which the suite of tools will be distributed will provide free access to all interested parties.

With the budget of €8 million, the project should last until April 2021, and includes European companies with international partners from the United States.
