Press Release: MaRINET2 launches programme of free courses on offshore renewables
MaRINET2 has opened registrations for the first set of ten courses on offshore renewable energy to be delivered over the next three years.
The short, two-to-five day long, courses for industry and academic researchers in the offshore renewable energy sector are organised and lectured by MaRINET2 project partners, and will focus on three areas: wave, wind and tidal energy.
The topics covered include integrated tank testing, hydrodynamics of fixed and floating offshore wind turbine foundations, reliability and risk analysis of ORE technologies as well as test and verification processes from tanks to the sea.
EMEC are involved in organising and delivering a short course in April 2019 on ‘test and verification processes from tanks to the sea,’ in collaboration with FloWave Ocean Energy Research Facility to target those within wave and tidal industries. EMEC will also organise a course on ‘methods and environmental data collection in marine renewable energy sites’ with WavEC Offshore Renewables and Marine Technology Research Institute of the National Research Council (CBR-INSEAN), in which a date is yet to be confirmed.
The courses are aimed at early-stage researchers and postgraduate students, as well as industry and private sector participants. There is no registration fee, and travel & subsistence support is available to early-stage researchers and postgraduate students.
Information on programme, location and duration of the courses is available on the MaRINET2 website, which will be updated as and when new details arise.
