TNEI launches Catapult marine energy studies

TNEI Services, a UK-based energy and environmental consultancy, has completed a series of studies on behalf of ORE Catapult regarding marine energy electrical architectures.

Three reports have been produced that take a detailed look at marine energy converter components and how these place constraints on how a multi device array can be implemented.

The first report consists of a landscape map and a literature review. The second is a review of previous studies on the subject, while the third report provides four alternate array architectures that can be deployed depending on the project and device type.

All three reports are available to download on the ORE Catapult’s website.

ORE Catapult is the UK’s technology innovation and research centre for offshore wind, wave and tidal energy.
