Blue-GIFT call 2 recommends support to five ocean energy technologies
These companies will be enabled to access test sites for validation of their technologies in real sea environments
The second call of the Interreg Atlantic Area funded Blue-GIFT (Blue Growth and Innovation Fast Tracked) project has recommended five ocean energy companies for support to deploy their technology in the Atlantic Area region. This completes the 2nd of three calls for applications in the Blue-GIFT project.
The Blue-GIFT project, coordinated by the European Marine Energy Centre (EMEC), based in Orkney, Scotland, aims to help Atlantic Area companies test their marine renewable energy technology in real sea environments and prove that power can be economically generated from the Atlantic Ocean.
The 1st and 2nd calls of the project have so far offered support package vouchers to a total of 14 companies, enabling them to access the Blue-GIFT test sites for validation of their technologies in real sea environments.
The companies who received vouchers for testing their technology in the 2nd call are:
- Blue Shark Power System,
- CorPower Ocean,
- Resolute Marine Energy,
- Tension Technology International Ltd and
- Exponential Renewables S.L.
- BiMEP (wave and floating wind) in the Basque Country, Spain;
- PLOCAN (wave and floating wind) in Gran Canaria, Spain;
- SEENEOH (hydrokinetic and tidal) in Bordeaux, France;
- WavEC (wave and floating wind test centre) in Aguçadoura, Portugal.
Blue-GIFT (Blue growth and innovation fast tracked) is composed by 7 partners from the 5 programme Member States.With 2.470 M€ total budget it runs until October 2021.
