AMETS - Atlantic Marine Energy Test Site

DESCRIPTION

The Atlantic Marine Energy Test Site (AMETS) is being developed by Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI) to facilitate testing of full scale offshore renewable energy in an open ocean environment.

AMETS will be located off Annagh Head, west of Belmullet in County Mayo and will be connected to the national grid.

The test site is an integral component of Ireland’s Offshore Renewable Energy Strategy and is being developed in accordance with the national Offshore Renewable Energy Development Plan (OREDP).

The site will provide two separate test locations at various depths of water to allow for a range of devices to be tested. It is envisaged that the test site will provide a grid connected national test facility, to which full scale devices could be coupled during their final stages of pre-commercial development.

AREAS OF SPECIAL COMPETENCE

Live met-ocean data measurements, numerical wave modelling reports including wave propagation and wave energy assessments, offshore site investigations including vibrocores and multi-beam surveys.

WHAT CAN BE TESTED

AMETS can offer interested developers a suite of detailed information such as live met-ocean data measurements, numerical wave modelling reports including wave propagation and wave energy assessments, offshore site investigations including vibrocores and multi-beam surveys.

AVAILABLE INFRASTRUCTURE

Live met-ocean data measurements, numerical wave modelling reports including wave propagation and wave energy assessments, offshore site investigations including vibrocores and multi-beam surveys.
