Ocean Power Technologies Launches Hybrid PowerBuoy

and integration, and other tests in coastal New Jersey waters. The company says that the buoy "met or exceeded stringent engineering requirements."“We believe that the hybrid PowerBuoy is a remarkable power and communications platform – an easily deployable, clean offshore energy source and an excellent complement to OPT’s PB3 PowerBuoy solutions,” said George H. Kirby, President and Chief Executive Officer of OPT

Freight Planning… What About Offshore Wind…?

is an urgent priority, there might be an effort to anticipate and coordinate the planning, financing and construction that new OSW ports will require. It would be unfortunate if a National Freight Strategic Plan were finalized without referencing the complex demands presented by building this new energy source

Protecting Subsea Cabling

demand for offshore wind energy continues to grow, solutions like DAS need to become an integral part of operations. The energy industry must take a comprehensive view of the systems necessary to successfully operate offshore wind farms, or risk costly outages that impact confidence in this renewable energy source.The authorStuart Large has combined technical, commercial and managerial expertise gained over 16 years in the oil an gas industry, working at two small engineering firms and two large multinationals. He is now product line director at Fotech Solutions and maintained the role for almost five years

we must support the development of new energy integration technologies that meet the needs of this challenge.“EC-OG’s SPH contributes to this industry change through its tidal turbine system, which can be used to unlock the huge potential in marginal developments by providing a primary energy source. We are delighted to be supporting EC-OG with their trial, which was a great success and look forward to working with them on the next stage of their project.&rdquo

Wind R&I Center – NOWRIC. Its goal is to work with the industry to develop better, cheaper solutions for offshore wind farms.DTU, NTNU and SINTEF have some of Europe’s strongest maritime research groups and infrastructure.“Offshore wind is an important, environmentally friendly energy source. There has been a fantastic development globally in recent years,” says SINTEF’s Bech Gjørv. “At the same time, the technology is constantly evolving and continued research and innovation is crucial for us to succeed with more affordable and better solutions.

Blue-Gift to Implement Marine Power Project

.Located in the coastal regions of Spain, France, Portugal, Ireland and Scotland, the Atlantic Arc region represents the areas of highest ocean energy resource in Europe. The development of ocean energy in these regions will help stimulate economic development whilst developing a domestic sustainable energy source to reduce carbon emissions.The project aims to support a minimum of eight floating wind, wave or tidal demonstration related projects across the Atlantic Arc region.EMEC will lead a consortium of four ocean energy test centres to maximise the use of existing infrastructure across the Atlantic
