MaREI Open Days in June - Cork...

On Saturday, 5 June 2016, the MaREI Centre for Marine and Renewable Energy hosted a 'discovery day' event as a part of the Cork Harbour Festival. 'Discover Oceans of Energy' was a great opportunity for MaREI to open the doors of the UCC Beaufort Building in Ringaskiddy, Co. Cork, Ireland, to the public. The facilities comprise a 2,600m2 tank-hall that house four different wave tanks and a suite of electrical test infrastructure, alongside scientists and engineers engaged in cross-disciplinary research covering a range of fields such as Marine Renewable Energy, Marine and Coastal, and Sustainable Energy Research. As part of the MaREI centre, the UL team took part in this event presenting the lab infrastructure capacities. We did testing of our I-ROV’s in strong ocean currents simulator tank and we presented our ongoing research projects: EXCELLABUST, MARINET, MRE ROV etc.). During the event, the public had an opportunity to engage in some hands-on marine and energy teamed activities.
