About the project:

SELKIE is a cross-border project which aims to boost the marine energy industry in Wales and Ireland by bringing together leading researchers and businesses to improve the performance of marine renewable devices and technologies. University College Cork are leading the project in partnership with Swansea University, Marine Energy Wales, Menter Môn, DP Energy Ireland and Gavin & Doherty Geosolutions.

Multi-use technology tools, templates, standards and models are being created for use across the industry; which will be tested and validated on wave and tidal pilot demonstration technologies. The pilot testing will advance knowledge and improve marine energy devices in terms of their reliability, survivability, operability, stability and commercial viability.

The project is funded by the European Regional Development Fund through the Ireland Wales Cooperation programme.
