IMPACT and VALID host successful webinar on WEC testing

On 31 January, around 48 people tuned in to watch IMPACT and fellow wave energy research project VALID‘s joint webinar on how the technology being developed in each project can support wave energy converter (WEC) deployment across Europe.

IMPACT was represented by Giacomo Alessandri (VGA) and Sam Neilson (Carnegie Clean Energy), who presented on experience gained from designing and executing mechanical tests on the CETO 6 WEC belt, using the IMPACT structural components rig.

VALID was represented by Iván Ruibal Barcia (IDOM) and Eider Robles Sestafe (TECNALIA), who presented on lessons learned from WEC testing in the IDOM use case.

IMPACT and VALID answered the same Horizon-2020 call to develop new test rig devices for accelerating ocean energy technology development. The two projects have previously collaborated to organise a side event at the global ocean energy conference, ICOE-OEE, in 2022. The webinar was organised and supported by Trust-IT Services through the EU’s Horizon Booster Results programme.

A recording of the webinar is now available to watch on YouTube:

Thank you to VALID, Trust-IT Services, the presenters and everyone who attended for an interesting and successful webinar!
