P1: Increase awareness of the marine environment (resources, impact…)


MARINE GROWTH: projects ABIOP, LEHERO

  • Inertia / Hydrodynamic added drag due to marine growth
  • Asymmetry of development
  • Species on site and follow-up in time
  • Space and time evolution

IMPACT OF EQUIPMENT: projects SPECIES, HOOPLA

  • Trenching, scouring (cable)
  • Electromagnetic radiation
  • Life on benthos and water column

SEISMIC, GEOTECHNOLOGY: projects PROSE, REDENV-EOL

  • Soil characterization
  • Foundations, anchors
  • Buried objects

P2: Support the development of MRE Technologies (FOWT, WEC) and components




 

NUMERICAL MODELLING, BENCH TESTS, IN -SITU MONITORING: project OMDYN

  • Thermo-mechanical effects
  • Component monitoring

FORECASTING FOLLOW-UP IN FATIGUE: project MHM-EMR

  • SHM: Structural Health Monitoring

LAYOUT OF FLOATING WIND FARMS: project STATIONIS

  • Criteria of wind farm layout
  • Technical and economic solutions

P3: Include all aspects related to the Energy (Storage, Transport and Conversion)



DYNAMIC CABLE MONITORING: projects EMODI and OMDYN

SAFETY

  • Risk analysis vs marine traffic
  • Maritime surveillance
  • Studies of component follow-ups


MARINE OPERATIONS

  • Meteorological and oceanographic forecasts
  • Monitoring for operation and maintenance (O&M)
  • Embarked numerical model for decision aid
