Three renewable energy developers awarded recommendations for support so far.

The EU-funded FORESEA programme has awarded a “Recommendation for Support” to three offshore renewable energy projects under call 4, following an interim review. This award will allow developers to prove their technologies in real sea conditions. Call 4 closes on 29th June 2018.

FORESEA is an €11m project which helps to bring offshore renewable energy technologies to market by offering free access to a world-leading network of test centres: EMEC (UK), DMEC (NL), SEM REV (FR) and SmartBay (IE).

FORESEA’s user selection board approved the following technology developers for support packages at the indicated test centre:

• HACE (Hydro Air Concept Energy): WEC system at SEM-REV, Centrale Nantes
• SEAc (Acoustic of the Sea) project: from NEREIS Environnement at SEM-REV, Centrale Nantes
• Renewable Devices Marine Ltd: Capricorn Marine Turbine at EMEC

A final award of support is secured by the developer upon contract with the test centre.

By providing free access to these world-leading test centres, the FORESEA programme helps developers drive their technology towards the marketplace.

FORESEA’s 4th call for applications was launched on 11 October 2017 and will run until 29 June 2018. The call aims to help developers of offshore technologies transition into the renewable energy space by developing new applications for their products.
