Open field operations
TRL+ plus offers the added value of the important lessons learnt from IDERMAR project, in which three meteorological masts for resource characterization were designed, built, installed and operated in the Cantabrian Sea. In the framework of this project, key aspects such as operation strategies, installation and decommissioning, environmental constraints and electrical requirements were addressed.
The first wave energy conversion device is being tested in bimep since October 2016 (OCEANTEC). The transportation and installation of this device was a unique opportunity for bimep to gain know-how in marine operations. Additionally, the installation of different metocean characterization devices and their maintenance tasks have also contributed to gain expertise in the marine operations field.
