MET-CERTIFIED welcomes you at OEE2018:  join our B2B event and FloWave visit!

October 11, 2018
On 30th and 31st October, the annual Ocean Energy Europe Conference & Exhibition takes place in Edinburgh, UK.  OEE2018 is an important meeting point for the whole ocean energy sector.  Over 400 professionals from all parts of the industry and from 20+ countries come to meet the right people in the busy exhibition hall and get an update on the sector’s latest news in the conference.

At the conference, MET-CERTIFIED is co-hosting 2 side events:

1. B2B networking meetings
Tuesday 30 October, 14:00 – 17:00 ; Wednesday 31 October, 9:00 – 13:00

The B2B Meetings event brings together visitors and exhibitors, Marine Energy sector professionals and experts, seeking business or technological collaborations.  It’s a quick and easy way to meet potential partners for future projects.  A  number of MET-CERTIFIED partners will be present there on behalf of the business development for the certification and standardisation of Marine Energy Technologies.  We welcome you to join us!

​​ 2. FloWave technical visit
Thursday 1 November, 10:00

Following the conference, delegates can participate in a visit to the FloWave Ocean Energy Research Facility.

The heart of FloWave is a 25m diameter basin, with a working depth of 2m. Containing more than 2.4 million litres of water the test tank is divided into upper and lower volumes, separated by a 1m thick moveable floor. The upper test volume is circumferentially ringed by 168 absorbing wave makers, whilst the lower volume contains the twenty-eight flow-drive units that can simultaneously and independently drive current across the upper test volume in any relative direction, with maximum current velocities of 1,6 metres per second.
The rising tank floor and 5t overhead crane enable quick and easy installation of individual devices, or arrays of wave or tidal current generators, and the fast settling time between tests combine to enable very efficient, effective and data-intensive test campaigns.

Conceived for cutting-edge collaborative academic and industrial research into wave and tidal current interactions, the FloWave Ocean Energy Research Facility is an essential tool to ensure technologies and projects perform ‘right first time’ and are de-risked as much as practical before cutting steel or going offshore.

During the visit, FloWave staff will explain and demonstrate the capabilities of the test tank, as well as the advantages it offers for testing innovative ocean energy technologies.   At the end of the visit, a presentation will be given by MET-CERTIFIED on the project and on the importance of the accreditation of test centers and the certification of developers.
