The theoretical potential for offshore wind energy i very large. It principe, it would be possible to meet seven times Europe’s energy requirements, and four times those of the USA. MARINTEK is an active participant in the development of offshore wind power via its research, software development, model testing and development of new operating strategies. We also participate in long-term research on tidal and wave-power.

The aquaculture industry has a great need to develop both new concepts and more robust structures. In the future, the world will have to increase food production by 70 per cent, and much of that increase must come in the form of seafood. By locating aquaculture installations further out to sea, the industry should be able to achieve sustainable growth. MARINTEK is contributing its expertise in model testing, analyses and verification to this task.
