EMEC supporting KRISO wave energy test site in Korea

4 October 2019

The European Marine Energy Centre (EMEC) has entered an agreement to continue to support the development of the Korea Research Institute of Ships and Ocean Engineering - Wave Energy Test Site (KRISO-WETS) on the western coast of Jeju Island.

This agreement builds on three years of strong collaboration and strengthens the ties between EMEC and KRISO.

Previous collaborative work focused on test site design aspects such as electrical infrastructure, data acquisition and SCADA (supervisory control and data acquisition) systems, and operational aspects such as environmental monitoring and consenting guidance.

As KRISO-WETS enters operational mode, EMEC will provide further operational guidance around environmental impacts, metocean data, commercial guidance, and third-party verification.
