Atlantic Marine Energy Test Site (Vimeo)


The Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland plans to develop a National Wave energy Test Site, which is proposed to be located off Annagh Head, west of Belmullet in County Mayo.

The Purpose ofthe wave energy test site iat belmullet is to provide a location for the temporary mooring and deployment of wave energy machines so that their performance in generating electricity and their survivability can be tested and demonstrated in open ocean conditions. It is proposed for the site to operate for up to 20 years with devices on site intermittently throughout the year.
