Aberdeen company Forum Energy Technologies and Paris-based iXBlue have won contracts from the University of Limerick for the delivery of marine remotely operated vehicle (ROV) systems for subsea applications in offshore wind or similar infrastructure. The total value of awarded contracts is EUR 2,083,947. The university invited tenders for the delivery of marine ROV systems in May […]
The University of Limerick has invited tenders for the provision of marine ROV systems suitable for inspection and intervention on Marine Renewable Energy (MRE) infrastructure, with good thrust to drag ratio developed for subsea, offshore wind or similar applications. The marine ROV system will be housed at Limerick Docks where ROV systems experimentation, testing and demonstration will be carried out. For offshore […]
Stockton University is today playing host to a forum to discuss how New Jersey can benefit from expanding offshore wind industry on the U.S. East Coast. The Offshore Wind Energy Forum kicks off after the U.S. Bureau of Ocean Energy Management’s (BOEM) federal sale last November of two leases for offshore wind energy development of 344,000 […]
The University of Maine has received a USD 3.9 million grant from the Harold Alfond Foundation for the establishment of an ocean engineering and an advanced manufacturing laboratory on campus. The latest grant brings the total of funds raised for the Harold Alfond W2 Ocean Engineering Laboratory and Advanced Manufacturing Laboratory to almost USD 14 million. The […]
Michelle Rempel, Minister of State for Western Economic Diversification, announced an investment of CAD 2.3 million for two projects at the University of Manitoba to support innovation in Western Canada. With federal funding of $1.8 million, the University of Manitoba’s Technology Transfer Office will lead a pan-western consortium of Western Canadian Innovation Offices (WCIO) that […]
The work of a masters student now working at Marine Power Systems (MPS), a Swansea-based company developing wave technology, has been recognised by MINES-ParisTech University, France. MINES-ParisTech University has requested that Jean-Baptiste Le Dreff, a specialist in computer modelling and design, presents his work and achievements in the institution’s quarterly newsletter. Only one or two […]
Fourteen students and two teachers from Kristiansand Cathedral School Gimle (KKG) visited in Grimstad in November. During their visit, the laboratory demonstrated how one can compensate for wave movements during offshore operations using a Stewart platform. Professor Geir Hovland, who hosted the visit, created a special student exercises with the analysis of a real wave range […]
William Hurley, naval architect from The Glosten Associates and PelaStar, will discuss the introduction of offshore wind energy in Europe as part of Western Washington University’s Huxley College of the Environment Speaker Series at 4 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 20 in Communications Facility 120 on the Western Washington University campus. The presentation is free and […]
On November 4, Mayor of Bristol George Ferguson met with final year engineering students at the University of Bristol to launch the Bristol 2015 Marine Energy Accelerator Programme (MEAP) – a year-long programme of events and other initiatives, co-funded by Bristol City Council and Bristol 2015 European Green Capital. Commenting on the launch, the Mayor […]
Offshore wind farms will allow renewable energy to be generated with little or no carbon dioxide emissions, but little is known about how they impact the marine species living and migrating along the coast. A new study led by the University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science will help State and Federal decision-makers better understand […]
The U.S. Navy has committed to get half of its energy from renewable sources by the year 2020. One element of that strategy will be looking to extract energy from tides, currents and waves. The University of Washington is helping to reach that goal with an $8 million, four-year contract from the Naval Facilities Engineering […]
More than 120 energy industry experts gathered at Heriot-Watt University today to hear about how the latest research and partnership with Scottish and global energy businesses could drive innovation. Delegates include representatives from the Scotmas Group; Selex Galileo; AMEC; The Crown Estate; Scottish Water; Grontmij and Heliex Power. Professor Mercedes Maroto-Valer, Director of the Energy […]
Wave energy developer Carnegie Wave Energy Limited (CWE) has announced that its collaborative project to develop a standardised, self-contained offshore electricity generator for the wave industry moved a step closer last week when a tenth-scale WavePOD prototype moved to the world-leading Institute for Fluid Power Drives and Controls (IFAS) at Aachen University, Germany. The WavePOD wave […]
Statoil has accepted to support a PhD work of Ole-Erik Vestøl Endrerudat at University of Stavanger with Dr. Nenad Keseric from Statoil Wind Operations being a co-supervisor.
