The RESOURCECODE project, funded by Ocean Energy Era-Net Cofund, is supporting the investment and growth in the wave, tidal and offshore wind energy sectors through the creation of a new integrated marine data toolbox.
The toolbox will be launched at a virtual event on 10 March 2022. The RESOURCECODE team will demonstrate the capabilities of the toolbox, as well as the value of the datasets and provide an interactive environment to introduce the suite of tools.
To attend the event and demonstration you can register for free here.
The RESOURCODE marine data toolbox provides developers with a set of standards and functions for resource assessment and operations planning. The toolbox integrates a high-resolution hindcast dataset and analysis tools in an online platform enabling easy access and analysis. The toolbox has been created using 27 years of hindcast wave data, from across North West Europe and it will provide technology developers and supply chain companies with world leading resource characterisation, enabling them to improve engineering designs, optimise operations in highly demanding marine environments, reduce barriers and promote growth in renewable energy.
Nicolas Raillard, Researcher at Ifremer said:
“We are delighted to launch the RESOUCECODE toolbox, which will enable easy access to the data, while the extended implemented open-source library will allow online analysis dedicated to refined resource assessment and offshore energy converters design and optimisation.
We are confident that the final 27-year dataset, combined with the RESOURCECODE marine data toolbox will provide the most adapted and integrated solution for ocean renewable energy developers”.
Matthew Storey, Project Manager at EMEC, said:
“The RESOURCECODE project brought together an international consortium of businesses and marine renewable energy test sites supported by established academic partners, which blended the necessary expertise for the project. EMEC has enjoyed leading on this project and working in partnership to develop this new marine data toolbox, which will deliver significant benefits for the energy sector”.
The RESOURCECODE project brings together the European Marine Energy Centre (EMEC), Ifremer, Ocean Data Lab, BlueWise Marine, Centrale Nantes, University College Dublin, University of Edinburgh and INNOSEA.
