EMEC gives out a compliance report for the Dublin Offshore tie-up module

Dublin Offshore has developed a tie-up LRD for floating offshore wind turbines to focus on engineering solutions for the marine environment. As a result, the tension that existed in the tie-up lines during operation would not be present. Last year, the firm carried out experiments on a quarter-scale version of a test location located off Ireland’s west coast.

EMEC received a contract to inspect Dublin’s Offshore mooring network and give an authentication of information collected to the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) for technical description. That standard offers the same approaches for the design and assessment of tie-up networks for floating MECs. After receiving an inspection credit of body to IEC/ISO 17020, EMEC commenced its operations with Dublin Offshore before the launching. That way, there will be more time for preparation and inspection of data collection methodology. EMEC started motorization of its implementation and later gave out an accredited compliance report concerning its findings. Dublin Offshores LRD network was launched to have high compliance with the IEC TS 62600-10. After carrying out verifications and speculations, the data provided turned out to be true.

Independently verified information in terms of mooring functionality would offer much confidence to the sector. As a result, test results would be incredible and would improve the rate of durability and survival. In turn, the industry gets improvement while proving its stability of the new solutions offered by the technology.

Elaine Buck, who serves as the Technical Manager at ELEC, was happy to collaborate with Dublin Offshore to support the mooring experiment. He added a selection of lone accreditation to ensure that all mooring standards were adhered to during the experimentation on LRD. The work of EMEC was produced as part of supporting services offered through the Interreg ofNorth West Europe. Funded with Marine Energy Alliance (MEA), the project will help carry out marine life technologies.  

EMEC has worked together with many other companies to help develop suitable standards for marine renewable energy. In March 2014, EMEC agreed with the Offshore Renewable Energy Catapult (ORE Catapult). ORE Catapult is a workshop that overlooks the current suite of EMEC and identifies areas that new standards.

EMEC, together with SmartestEnergy, have both signed a Power Purchase Agreement t help convey power produced from wave and tidal devices located in the Orkney Islands. EMEC has a hydrogen factory located on the onshore of Coaldale site on Eday. Using hydrogen as another source of energy has overcome problems with the local network and facilitates large-scale renewable integration production.
