The second call for MaRINET2 applications will be launched on 15 January with the application time running until 28 February 2018.

Through MaRINET2, successful applications will receive free access to EMEC’s testing infrastructure which includes four offshore sites and a range of associated testing equipment. Projects can be focused on testing marine energy devices, components or subsystems for short to medium term durations.

A contribution towards travel and subsistence costs for users of the initiative is also available.

“The companies that tested at EMEC through the first MaRINET project found that the learning generated from deploying in the sea has been invaluable to the development of their technologies,” said Matthew Finn, Senior Business Development Manager at EMEC. “As well as device developers, we would also like to encourage companies from across the European supply chain to consider whether running a test and demonstration project in the sea at EMEC could add value to their products.
