    Course objectives

    Learning objectives / course content

    The course aims at introducing the economic and technical advantages in combining offshore wind and wave energy in the same structure and/or location.

    The course will present the market status of hybrid technologies and touch upon certification. A special insight will be given to two hybrid technologies: Floating Power Plant and Wave Dragon. The synergies in combining both resources will be analysed through a techno-economic case study based in North Sea waters, where the course attendant will have the opportunity to understand how both resources complement each other in time and in space.

    The role of multi-use platforms, able to harness renewable energies and host tourism attractions and aquaculture facilities will also be addressed.

    The case of Middelgrunden Wind Farm will exemplify the combination of wind production and tourism. Lastly, the technological and financial barriers and projections for a combined wind and wave mix will be also analysed.

    Target group

    The course is aimed at people targeting to harvest the potential in wind and wave multi purpose platforms.

    The course offers a general and comprehensive introduction the technologies and their potential. Target group includes business development, maritime staff, seafarers (officers), planners, developers, agents, ministries, equipment manufacturers (OEMs), suppliers, consultancies, contractors, etc.

    Job roles could be operational, administration, sales and marketing, engineering, finance, law, technical, research and development, etc. Participants do not need a specific educational background.
