The Selkie Project launches tender call for tidal energy developers
SELKIE is a cross-border project which is bringing together leading researchers and businesses to improve the performance of marine energy devices and technologies. University College Cork are leading the project in partnership with Marine Energy Wales, Menter Môn, Swansea University, DP Energy Ireland and Gavin and Doherty Geosolutions. The project is funded by the European Union’s European Regional Development Fund through the Ireland Wales Cooperation programme.
Selkie will test and validate the technology tools on two pilot demonstration technologies: one wave and one tidal (chosen via open tender). Using a structured development path, the pilot testing will advance the knowledge and improvement of marine energy devices in terms of their reliability, survivability, operability, stability and commercial viability.
