Maritime energy

The use of energy from and at sea has great potential for the sustainable energy production. However, it provides major challenges for society. Offhsore wind turbines, wave energy converters and tidal turbines require new structures and mechanisms to fix them to the seabed, either floating or static. Those structures have to withstand high forces, but equally have to adapt dynamically to prevailing conditions in order to optimise energy production.

This research area therefore combines elements from classical coastal and marine engineering with new research fields for wave predition:

  • Wave loads under extreme conditions
  • Scour development and scour protection
  • Wave-structure-subsoil interaction
  • Dynamic behaviour of floating structures
  • Real-time wvae forecast for optimised energy output
