DTOceanPlus is a Horizon 2020 project funded by the European Union, that will develop and demonstrate an integrated suite of 2nd generation advanced design tools for ocean energy technologies. The tools will support the entire technology innovation and advancement process from concept, through development, to deployment, and will be applicable at a range of levels: sub-system, device, and array.
WavEC will contribute to DTOceanPlus with its expertise in tool development for the ocean energy industry. WavEC will lead a work package (WP6 – Assessment Tools) which consists of developing tools to globally assess the design of each technology (sub-system, device and array) but also tasks related with the logistics and marine operations planning, the system lifetime costs and finally the legal, institutional and political frameworks of the marine energy projects.
