TECNALIA launches the first floating laboratory in Europe for tests at BIMEP, a real offshore environment

2018.07.20

The construction and installation of this lab has been supported by the Basque Government, and it will be situated and started up at BIMEP, Biscay Marine Energy Platform, the open-sea marine energy research platform, located in Armintza and developed by the Basque Energy Agency (EVE).

The sea is an infinite energy source, but the companies involved in harnessing this enormous energy source face the same challenge: the survival of energy systems in a highly hostile environment – the marine environment. Now Basque companies will be able to use a lab that is unique in Europe to test materials and solutions in a real offshore environment. It has been developed by the Research and Technological Development Centre TECNALIA, with the support of a number of Basque companies, coordinated by the Basque Energy Cluster and supported by the Basque Government.

It was launched this morning in Bermeo Port at an event that was attended by the Regional Minister for Economic Development and Infrastructure of the Basque Country, Arantxa Tapia; CEO of TECNALIA, Iñaki San Sebastián; and the Managing Director of the Basque Energy Cluster, José Ignacio Hormaeche. Over the next week, the lab will be taken to BIMEP, Biscay Marine Energy Platform, the open-sea marine energy research platform situated in Armintza and developed by the Basque Energy Agency (EVE), where there is constant surveillance and which will enable fast access to HarshLab.
