The Marine Energy Engineering Centre of Excellence (MEECE) is a multi-million-pound collaboration between ORE Catapult and Welsh universities, funded by the Welsh European Funding Office. Based at Pembroke Dock, the Centre will deliver research, development and demonstration activities to support innovation in the Welsh supply chain, accelerating the commercialisation of the wave, tidal and offshore wind sectors by reducing cost of energy.
The purpose of the MEECE collaboration is to support innovative companies in West Wales and the Valleys region to develop new products, processes and services for the offshore renewables sector. We carry out a range of collaborative innovation projects to support these technology developments at minimal cost to the company. These include:
We want to hear from innovative SMEs with groundbreaking technologies and concepts that MEECE can help drive towards commercialisation. We can work across all TRL levels, from basic concepts to pre-production prototypes. Current projects that we are already investigating include:
