DTOcean project


A follow-up to DTOcean

DTOceanPlus 3-year project (1 May 2018 – 30 April 2021) with a total budget of 8 million euros, will be carried out in the continuity of DTOcean.

DTOceanPlus will develop and demonstrate a suite of 2nd generation advanced design tools for the selection, development and deployment of ocean energy systems.
 The integrated tools will be demonstrated in the setting of real world technology deployment projects, with access to these projects being provided by the project’s industrial and commercial partners. The project will create a set of digital models which will also provide a common language for the entire ocean energy sector.

The design tools developed within the project will be housed on the JRC Setis website dedicated to DTOcean outputs.

DTOcean is a European collaborative project funded by the European Commission under the 7th Framework Programme for Research and Development, more specifically under the call ENERGY 2013-1. DTOcean that stands for Optimal Design Tools for Ocean Energy Arrays aims at at accelerating the industrial development of ocean energy power generation knowledge, and providing design tools for deploying the first generation of wave and tidal energy converter arrays. It gathers 18 partners from 11 countries (Ireland, Spain, United Kingdom, Germany, Portugal, France, Norway, Denmark, Sweden, Belgium and United States of America) under the coordination of the University of Edinburgh.
