Ocean Demo third call to focus on progression towards multi device installations
The EU-funded Ocean DEMO project has launched its 3nd call.
The new call will focus on supporting technology developers with high readiness level for deployment in late 2020 or early 2021. Successful applicants will receive free access to test their ocean energy products and services in real sea environments at the project’s network of test centres. This new call will focus on supporting technology developers with high readiness level for deployment in late 2020 or early 2021. Technology developers can apply for support packages to test multi-device farms or single devices able to scale up to multi-device in the future. The call is open until 18th September 2020, at 17:00 UTC, and call documents are available on the Ocean DEMO website. A webinar detailing the application process and support opportunities will take place in a few weeks.
Funded by Interreg North-West Europe, Ocean DEMO is a €13m project aiming to accelerate ocean energy’s transition from single prototype to multi-device farms by providing free access to world-leading test centres: EMEC (UK), DMEC (NL), SEM REV (FR) and SmartBay (IE). PERISCOPE partner EMEC is the lead partner for the project.
In addition, an Ocean DEMO webinar will take place at the end of June to present the application system as well as the available support packages. It will also highlight common themes and challenges that technology developers address during their testing period. The exact date and registration link will be available on the Ocean DEMO website shortly.
