PORTOS announce second call for Renewable Energy Device Testing

The Interreg Atlantic Area funded PORTOS Project is delighted to announce the SECOND CALL FOR RENEWABLE ENERGY DEVICE TESTING.

Technologists within the Atlantic Area are invited to submit applications outlining their novel marine renewable energy technology.

Applications will be reviewed and evaluated by an independent selection panel. This process is managed by University College Cork (MaREI), Ireland. Successful technologies will be tested free of charge for two weeks at one of the following advanced state-of-the-art test facilities:

• Universidade de Santiago de Compostela, Spain – wave/current flume;

• Ecole d’Ingenieurs en Genie des Systemes Industriels, France – technical assessment of novel technologies.

• Universidad de Oviedo, Spain – numerical modelling of novel technologies

Testing is expected to take place between November ‘20 and March ‘21.

Please return completed application forms to nathan.kirwan@ucc.ie before 2nd October ‘20.

Further information about the application process and application form is available at www.portosproject.eu

About PORTOS

Project PORTOS (Ports Towards Energy Self-Sufficiency) aims to promote the implementation of wave, tidal, and wind energy, at Atlantic Area ports, as to impact two environmental priorities: reduction of greenhouse gases emissions and air pollution by providing renewable energy-based solutions to harvest the renewable energy potential of Atlantic Area coastal areas.

PORTOS also aims to assess, develop, and promote the integrated use of renewable energy resources in Atlantic Area ports and increase their energy efficiency, establishing a roadmap to a more competitive and sustainable sector.
