Successful applicants will be able to test their ocean energy technologies in real-sea conditions

The access will allow developers to perform low cost tests and the validation of marine renewable energy technologies in real sea environment. The successful applicants will be recommended for a Support Package Voucher, which will facilitate low cost access to the test site under the terms of the access contract to be negotiated with the Access Provider.
