Wind and sea, our future for energy

2014.04.01

TECNALIA bets on renewable energy sources in the marine environment as a sector of the future

Renewable sources of energy in the marine environment which helps towards sustainable economic growth and stable job creation. Research, development and innovation will play a key role in obtaining competitive technologies for this sector.

We offer our knowledge and expertise to companies interested in marine energy in areas such as modelling and analysis of floating structures, mooring systems, electric transmission, materials, resource or environmental impact assessment. We prioritize the use of this knowledge with a clear global approach, focusing on the deployment of cost effective marine energy farms throughout their life cycle. TECNALIA has accumulated extensive experience in the development of devices for harnessing wave energy and offshore wind, especially in deep waters.

BUSINESS OPPORTUNITIES

TECNALIA would like to share its technological developments to create profitable and sustainable business opportunities that growth as new technological based companies or as new business lines for companies:

ON1
Nautilus: Floating platform for wind energy 
More information
ON7
Oceantec: First Spanish company that has validated a prototype for harnessing wave energy in marine environment
More information
ON3
Superturbinas: Superconducting electric generator for wind turbines
More information

The gathered experience of TECNALIA in the development of these technologies allows  having a privileged vision of the opportunities emerging in the marine environment for sustainable and efficient energy applications.

We also work on the development of business opportunities for electrical connection of marine energy devices:

ON4
Submarine hub
ON5
Connection system for floating structures
ON6
Smart submarine connectors

INITIATIVES FOR NEW BUSINESS OPPORTUNITIES AND INNOVATION

We are involved in a wide number or Research and Innovation initiatives for the development of new products and for the deployment of opportunities for a competitive exploitation of marine energies.

 

 

NETWORKING

Jose Luis Villate, Director of the Marine Energy Area, is the chairman of the OES  (Implementing Agreement on Ocean Energy Systems of the International Energy Agency). TECNALIA is also involved in the following networks,and associations.

 

 

MARINE ENERGY RELEVANT INFRASTRUCTURES

The Electrical PTO Lab is a turbine emulator that reproduces the mechanical output of an ocean energy device/wind turbine. This HIL test-bench allows us to perform dynamic tests with the real electrical equipment that is going to be used in the WEC. The viability of the concept can be analysed from the electric point of view. Different kind of tests can be performed: electrical operation, development and validation of control algorithms, repetitive tests, etc. This facility is integrated in the MaRINET European network, an EU-funded programme to accelerate the development of offshore renewable energy (wave, tidal, offshore-wind).
