Discussion and communication forum on cross-cutting and specific topics related to marine renewable energies, where at least one representative of each of the three regions takes part, with the first being the activity coordinator:

PROTECTING OFFSHORE WIND TURBINE PLATFORMS FROM CORROSION

Boosting research as the cornerstone in new developments of nanotechnology solutions and materials applied to corrosion protection, also including anti-fouling properties for offshore concrete and metal structures.

Partners: Tecnalia (Euskadi), NAITEC (Navarra), UPNA (Navarra).

OFFSHORE WIND TURBINE FAULT DIAGNOSIS USING AI+DRONES

Disseminating and promoting AI (Artificial Intelligence) as a tool for offshore wind turbine fault diagnosis.

Partners: NAITEC (Navarra), ALERION (Euskadi), ISC-UPNA (Navarra), IMB-EDP (Aquitania), INRIA-CARDAMOM (Aquitania).

DEVELOPING NEW TECHNOLOGIES TO MOOR FIXED AND FLOATING STRUCTURES; FLOOR STUDY

Marine structure mooring studies. Coupled models of floating structures with mooring systems.

Partners: IMB-EDP (Aquitania), INRIA-CARDAMOM (Aquitania), UPV/EHU (Euskadi), INAMAT^2-UPNA (Navarra).

ADVANCES IN ADVANCED SIMULATION OF MARINE ENERGY DEVICES

Hydrodynamics and aerodynamics applied to offshore renewable energy devices. Phenomena simulation (turbulence, overtopping, vorticity, etc.) by means of CFD and open-source tools (OpenFoam).

Partners: UPV/EHU (Euskadi), BCAM (Euskadi), IMB-EDP (Aquitania), INRIA-CARDAMOM (Aquitania), CENER (Navarra), ISC-UPNA (Navarra).

ENERGY POLICIES IN THE EUROREGION; 2030 GENERATION STRATEGIES

Exploring the construction cross-border energy public policies by means of the social, economic and legal aspects with a session on “analysis of the impact of the new European policies and the GREEN DEAL”.

Partners: TRENT (Aquitania), INARBE/ISC-UPNA (Navarra), CENER (Navarra), UPV/EHU (Euskadi).

Hydrodynamics of Wave Energy Converters (HYWECs)

Developments of new numerical and mathematical model for the simulation of WECs in shallow water and of non-linear effects with heavy swell.

Partners: IMB-EDP (Aquitania), IMB-CARDAMOM (Aquitania), UPV/EHU (Euskadi), BCAM (Euskadi), NAITEC (Navarra).
