MARINA Platform for Offshore Renewable Energy Infrastructure​

Participation (Constantine Michailides) in the European Union funded project (FP-7 Energy) MARINA Platform. MARINA is a European project dedicated to bringing offshore renewable energy applications closer to the market by creating new infrastructures for both offshore wind and ocean energy converters. It addresses the need for creating a cost-efficient technology development basis to kick-start growth of the nascent European marine renewable energy (MRE) industry in the deep offshore – a major future global market. The project combines deep-water engineering experience from European oil & gas developments during the last 40 years, state-of-the-art concepts for offshore wind energy, and the most promising concepts in today’s R&D pipeline on wave energy and other marine renewables.
