NEMOS is delighted to announce that it has joined the Ocean Energy Scale Up Alliance (OESA). OESA is coordinated by the Dutch Marine Energy Centre (DMEC) and has received funding to support the accelerated deployment of ocean energy pilots in the North Sea Region over the next three years.
In addition to DMEC, the service providers are the European Marine Energy Centre, Offshore Renewable Energy Catapult (UK), Aalborg University (DK), Danish Wave Energy Centre, ÅKP (Blue Maritime Cluster, NO), Uppsala University (SE) and SSPA Sweden.
The pilot projects come from Tocardo Tidal Power (tidal power, NL), Seabased (wave energy, NO), Floating Power Plant (combined wave and wind energy, DK), Seawirl (SE) and NEMOS.
Justin den Hartog, Head of Operations DMEC, said: “OESA is the first collaboration project uniting ocean energy expertise from organizations in the North Sea region. The region has a large track record in both ocean energy and offshore, thereby able to build the cornerstones of a sector that can power the North Sea Region’s renewable energy mix to build a sustainable future”.
NEMOS will use its involvement in OESA to continue the development and testing of its wave energy device concept as it moves closer to commercialisation.
