FORESEA call 4 – progress update

Three renewable energy developers awarded recommendations for support so far

22 March 2018. The EU-funded FORESEA programme has awarded a “Recommendation for Support” to three offshore renewable energy projects under call 4, following an interim review. This award will allow developers to prove their technologies in real sea conditions. Call 4 closes on 29th June 2018.

FORESEA is an €11m project which helps to bring offshore renewable energy technologies to market by offering free access to a world-leading network of test centres: EMEC (UK), DMEC (NL), SEM REV (FR) and SmartBay (IE).

FORESEA’s user selection board approved the following technology developers for support packages at the indicated test centre:

  • HACE (Hydro Air Concept Energy): WEC system at SEM-REV, Centrale Nantes
  • SEAc (Acoustic of the Sea) project: from NEREIS Environnement at SEM-REV, Centrale Nantes
  • Renewable Devices Marine Ltd: Capricorn Marine Turbine at EMEC

A final award of support is secured by the developer upon contract with the test centre.

By providing free access to these world-leading test centres, the FORESEA programme helps developers drive their technology towards the marketplace.
