MasterminingTM - Wave and Tidal Workshop (NSRI)

MasterminingTM - Wave and Tidal Workshop (NSRI)

16 May 2018
Venue: Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre (Forbes Suite), Bridge of Don, AB23 8BL

This MasterminingTM workshop explored opportunities for collaboration between the oil and gas subsea supply chain and the developing wave and tidal power sector.

Scotland plays a leading role in the commercialisation of wave and tidal stream energy, including via the European Marine Energy Centre in Orkney and the world’s first large-scale tidal stream array, MeyGen, in the Pentland Firth, which generated first power in 2016. The emerging sector is already generating significant commercial opportunities. More than £450m has been spent across the UK wave and tidal supply chain to date and the global industry is forecast to be worth up to £76bn by 2050, subject to successful commercialisation.

This workshop was aimed at businesses and researchers within the subsea, wave and tidal communities and drew upon research undertaken by NSRI and the Offshore Renewable Energy Catapult & Energy Technology Partnership to explore current and future technical challenges and commercial opportunities. It also increased oil and gas supply chain awareness of the opportunities within the wave and tidal sectors.

The event will include speakers from Atlantis Resources, The European Marine Energy Centre (EMEC), Quoceant and EC-OG, who will each discuss the ways in which subsea companies can adapt their existing offerings to meet the demands of the Wave and Tidal sector across the globe. 

Delegates will work in groups to discuss the possible technological solutions which could help the industry overcome current and future challenges. These will be categorised into five themes: Electrical Power& Distribution, Foundation & Moorings, Materials & Corrosion, Installation and Inspection, Condition Monitoring.
