Delivering quality in time and within budget
The aim of the ENCORE project (Energizing Coastal Regions with Offshore Renewable Energy) is to advance five offshore renewable energy technologies (including wave energy convertors, tidal and river current turbines and offshore floating solar) in a structured and collaborative process and to develop open-source tools & services to facilitate the accelerated commercialisation of offshore energy solutions for islands, harbours, estuaries and offshore structures with a focus on 2SEAS region and export.
It is expected that the ENCORE project will result in bankable solutions, jobs, export opportunities, increased competitiveness and as such contribute to cleaner climate.
ENCORE is managed by Lead Partner MET-support and receives funding from the Interreg 2 Seas programme 2014-2020, co-funded by the European Regional Development Fund under subsidy contract No 2S08-004. Also the provinces of South and North Holland and Zeeland are offering financial support. Other partners are Dutch Marine Energy Centre, the European Marine Energy Centre, Bureau Veritas, Artelia, Deftiq, University of Ghent, Teamwork Technology, Oceans of Energy, EEL Energy, Inyanga Marine Projects, Water2Energy.
The aim of MET-CERTIFIED is to advance standards and certifcation schemes for marine energy technologies in liaison with IEC and IECRE and a wide network of stakeholders.
This will result in reduction of risk and increased confidence in the technologies, while improving the standards.
MET-CERTIFIED is managed by MET-support on behalf of Dutch Marine Energy Centre and receiving funding from the Interreg 2 Seas programme 2014-2020, co-funded by the European Regional Development Fund under subsidy contract No 2S01-020. Also the Ministry of Economic Affairs in the Netherlands, the provinces of South and North Holland and the Belgian Province of West Flanders are offering financial support.
Oosterschelde Tidal Power
MET-support initiated, financed, and is managing the Oosterschelde Tidal Power (OTP) project on behalf of TU Delft and Tocardo.
This is a multi-disciplinary research and monitoring project to investigate the environmental effects of the world's first tidal stream array installed in a storm surge barrier in the province of Zeeland.
The research has been conducted by TU Delft, Wageningen Marine Research, Universiteit Utrecht and Deltares. The OTP project is financed via the OP-Zuid program and a contribution from the Province of Zeeland.
