H2020 DTOceanPlus project data is now available on RESCORE !

The FP7-funded DTOceanPlus project has developed a suite of advanced 2nd generation design tools for the selection, development and deployment of ocean energy systems, aligning innovation and development processes with those used in mature engineering sectors:

  • Technology concept selection will be facilitated by a structured innovation design tools,
  • Technology development will be enabled by a stage-gate design tool,
  • Deployment optimization will be implemented by deployment and assessment design tools (2 new modules, 2nd generation tools with advanced capabilities, new socio-economic assessment functionalities).

This 3-year project (May 1, 2018 - August 30, 2021) with a total budget of 8 million euros, was carried out as a continuation of DTOcean which produced a first generation of open source design tools available free of charge for waves and tides energy systems.

The software suite developed has been evaluated as part of real-world technology deployment projects, and is available free of charge.

FEM PHYSIC project data is now available on RESCORE !

The PHYSIC project is an R&D project of France Energies Marines which took place from 2016 to 2019 (48 months).

The objective of this project was to develop hydrosedimentary modeling in areas of strong currents through measurement campaigns.

PHYSIC made it possible to establish recommendations for the deployment of equipment for the acquisition of field data in areas of strong currents. Databases dealing with sediment transport in the Raz Blanchard have also been set up. They represent valuable tools for those involved in the tidal turbine industry.

FEM TROPHIK project data is now available on RESCORE !

The TROPHIK project is an R&D project of France Energies Marines which started in 2016 and ended in 2019 (34 months).

The objective of the TROPHIK project is to model the role of offshore wind turbines and other anthropogenic activities in modifying the functioning of food webs in the Bay of Seine, taking into account climate change.

The main achievements of this project were:

  • Statistical modelling of the Bay of Seine ecosystem and study of the sensitivity of network indices to cumulative impact,
  • 2D spatialized modelling of the food web of the extended Bay of Seine,
  • Modelling the effect of climate change (IPCC RCP 2.6 and RCP 8.5 scenarios) on the modification of the distribution ranges of the 73 most sensitive species in the ecosystem,
  • Modelling of different anthropogenic pressures and climate change on the emerging properties of the food web.
