|The testing at HMRC of the Benson device.|
Period: 2012 to 2012
Organisations: Benson Engineering, HMRC
Abstract: A network of research centres and organisations that are working together to accelerate the development of marine renewable energy technologies - wave, tidal & offshore-wind.
Period: 2011 to 2015
Organisations: HMRC, SEAI
One of the main engineering challenges for floating marine renewable energy devices is the design of reliable, yet cost-effective mooring solutions for the harsh and dynamic marine environment. The mooring system must be able to withstand the ultimate limit state during storm conditions as well as the fatigue limit state due to the highly cyclic wave induced motions.
Period: 2013 to 2014
Organisations: SmartBay Ireland, Technology from Ideas
Belmullet Atlantic Marine Energy Test Site
Developing ocean energy in Ireland via full scale Atlantic Marine Energy Test Site
Period: 2011 to 2026
Organisations: Sustainable Energy Authority Ireland, Marine Institute
SmartBay Ireland as part of a European Research Consortium will trial and validate a new sensor for detecting biohazards and man-made chemicals. MariaBox is a four year project which is funded under the European Commission's Seventh Framework Programme.
Period: 2014 to 2017
Organisations: SmartBay Ireland
JOSPA - The Power of the Waves
Irish Tube Compressor testing at HMRC.
Real-time Remote Monitoring of Surface Currents and Waves off the Irish West Coast
The primary objective of this project is to commission and operate a radar system off the Irish west coast to remotely sense surface currents and waves. When the second radar is operating it will combine with our existing radar to provide detailed oceanographic data for the west coast and Galway Bay.
Period: 2013 to 2015
Organisations: SmartBay Ireland, NUI Galway
Limerick Wave Ltd have developed a mechanical power take off (PTO) mechanism that converts the motion of the waves to electrical power. Device testing at HMRC.
Organisations: Limerick Wave, HMRC
