MaRINET2 launches its 7th short course on offshore renewable energies
After the success of the first courses delivered by the MaRINET2 project consortium, the international project continues to roll out its training program in the offshore renewable energy sector.
In collaboration with MaRINET2, the Centre for Marine and Renewable Energy, University College Cork (UCC MaREI), the French Research Institute for Exploitation of the Sea (IFREMER), and Tecnalia Research & Innovation (TECNALIA), will organize a course entitled “Integrated Tank Testing for the Offshore Renewable Industry”. The short course will take place in Ireland, at the MaREI Centre for Marine and Renewable Energy, November 25th to 29th.
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, including cross-cutting issues such as electrical and grid connection aspects and testing.
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.
MaRINET2 is a €10.5m 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.
