EU MARINA PLATFORM: Marine renewable integrated application platform

Project Details

Description

MARINA is a European project dedicated to bringing offshore renewable energy applications closer to the market by creating new infrastructures for both offshore and ocean energy converters.

MARINA is a European project dedicated to bringing offshore renewable energy applications closer to the market by creating new infrastructures for both offshore wind and ocean energy converters. It addresses the need for creating a cost-efficient technology development basis to kick-start growth of the nascent European marine renewable energy (MRE) industry in the deep offshore a major future global market.

The project combines deep-water engineering experience from European oil & gas developments during the last 40 years, state-of-the-art concepts for offshore wind energy, and the most promising concepts in today s R&D pipeline on wave energy and other marine renewables. The MARINA project is designed to capitalise on the vast body of proven marine technological knowledge gained in one of the world's most hostile off-shore operating environments: the Northern European seas.

MARINA will bolt this practical technology skill set onto the research base of the emerging but still marginal EU MRE industry and ensure its continued world-leading role. The MARINA project is therefore of major strategic significance for Europe.

The FP7 EU project MARINA: Marine Renewable Integrated Application Platform.
The MARINA project is lead by ACCIONA http://www.renewable-energy-sources.com/2010/02/10/acciona-leads-a-consortium-of-17-european-organizations-to-research-the-integration-of-different-marine-energy-sources/

The MARINA project is a pan-European project dedicated to bringing offshore renewable energy applications closer to the market by creating new infrastructures for both offshore wind and ocean energy converters. It addresses the need for creating a cost-efficient technology development basis to kick-start growth of the nascent European marine renewable energy (MRE) industry in the deep offshore – a major future global market.The project combines deep-water engineering experience from European oil and gas developments during the last 40 years, state-of-the-art concepts for offshore wind energy and the most promising concepts in today‟s R&D pipeline on wave energy and other marine renewable.

The total project is 12,8 million euro. The European Union has granted 8,7 million euro. Grant 241402. https://www.marine.ie/home/research/ProjectsDatabase/CurrentProjects/MARINA+Platform-+Marine+Renewable+Integrated+Application+Platform.htm

Charlotte Bay Hasager, Xiaoli Guo Larsén and Ioanna Karagali are responsible for for site conditions wind and waves for combined wind-wave energy converters.
