Blue-GIFT: 3rd call deadline extension. This is the last opportunity to submit your proposal

Blue-GIFT is running the third and final call for applications to test and validate marine renewable energy (MRE) technologies in real sea environments that will close on the 23rd of April 2021 at 17:00 UTC.

on March 17, 2021

Funded by Interreg Atlantic Area, Blue-GIFT project, is helping technology developers test their MRE devices in the Atlantic Area test sites: BiMEP (Basque Country, Spain), PLOCAN (Canary Island, Spain), SEENEOH (Bordeaux, France) and WavEC (Aguçadoura, Portugal).

Are you a developer of floating offshore wind, wave or tidal energy or working with floating solar technology?  This is your last opportunity to get involved in this project and perform low cost tests at these Atlantic Area areas test sites.

So far, the Blue-Gift project has supported four companies to deploy their devices in real sea conditions at test sites in the Atlantic Area including: Arrecife, Design Pro Renewables, Wave Piston and RW Power.

More technology developers will deploy in the coming months using Blue-Gift support, but a few vouchers are still available. If you want to be part of the Blue-Gift success story and test your device, get in touch about Call 3.

Ana Brito e Melo, WavEC said:

“ With this new testing opportunity offered by  Blue-GIFT, developers are able to prove their technologies out in the open sea, contributing to growing confidence in this sector. We are excited to work with CorPower Ocean, supporting the deployment and testing of their first full-scale wave energy device at Aguçadoura test site. We expect as well that this 3rd call gives others the chance to make this step into the sea.”

Thomas Soulard , Centrale Nantes stated:

“Blue-GIFT is the first opportunity to enhance the collaboration with the top European test sites resulting in better practices. The 3rd call is the last opportunity for you, technology developers, to join the project and make the most of your next sea trial campaign.”
