MaRINET2 Rolls Out 8th Short Course on Offshore Renewables

WavEC Offshore Renewables, in collaboration with MaRINET2, will organize a course entitled “Installation and O&M of Offshore Renewable Energy systems” taking place in Viana do Castelo (Portugal), on May 13 and 14

The short, two to five days long, courses are targeted for industry and academic researchers in the offshore renewable energy sector. Courses are organized and lectured by MaRINET2 project partners, and will focus on three areas: wave, wind and tidal energy.

The topics covered include integrated tank testing, hydrodynamics of fixed and floating offshore wind turbine foundations, reliability and risk analysis of ORE technologies as well as test and verification processes from tanks to the sea.

The courses are aimed at early-stage researchers and postgraduate students, as well as industry and private sector participants. There is no registration fee, and travel & subsistence support is available to early-stage researchers and postgraduate students.

Information on the program, location and duration of the courses is available on the MaRINET2 website.

MaRINET2 is a €10.5-million project funded by the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 program, and coordinated by the MaREI (Marine and Renewable Energy Ireland) Centre in University College Cork. The project has been set up to accelerate the development of offshore renewable energy technologies by providing free-of-charge access to a network of 57 research facilities across Europe.
