OCEANIC project tests coatings at WaveRoller site

Under the scope of the OCEANIC project, the marine environment team has deployed an experimental structure to test different coatings techniques to be used for marine renewable energy technologies. The structure was designed and assembled in WavEC premises, followed by the installation at the WaveRoller test site location off Portugal. Results will be used to provide informed advice on anti-fouling and anti-corrosion coatings for WaveRoller WEC.
