A company with expertise in wave modelling and remote sensing data has secured a contract for the provision of a global metocean database. Infoplaza will supply its global metocean database to DSME (Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine Enineering). The database, containing wind and wave data, will be used by DSME for the planning and design of
Global wave and tidal stream energy production has risen tenfold over the last decade, reflecting global efforts to identify commercialisation pathways for ocean energy technologies, according to a new report. Ocean Energy Systems' (OES) annual report shows cumulative energy produced from wave and tidal stream sources surged from less than 5GWh in 2009 to 45GWh
German authorities have begun the offshore practical testing in the German Bight of an advanced LIDAR-equipped mobile measurement and data collection buoy, writes Tom Todd. The 11m high and ca. 2.5m wide monitoring unit is the brainchild of the German Federal Maritime and Hydrographic Agency (BSH) and the Fraunhofer Institute for Wind Energy Systems IWES.
