UK Offshore Renewable Energy Summer School

Press Release
Wednesday, June 12, 2013

Early booking advised for the 2-week offshore renewable energy summer school (part of IDCORE 2013) aimed to expand & sustain a community of high-quality staff for the UK offshore renewable energy industry.


The summer school (22, July – 2, August 2013 at HR Wallingford, Howbery Park, Wallingford, Oxfordshire OX10 8BA, United Kingdom
) uses taught sessions, case studies and hands-on activities delivered by industry experts. Participants will also gain practical experience in HR Wallingford's modelling hall and navigation simulator.



Week one outlines site selection procedures, wave and tide theory, computational modelling (TELEMAC and SWAN), types of coastal structures and methods for determining forces on coastal and offshore structures.



Week two covers maritime engineering, environmental and scour issues facing developers of offshore wind, wave and tidal farms. Participants will be introduced to site investigation methods, learn about marine equipment, experience the behaviour of small vessels, and test out hypotheses in a physical model.



Some of the lectures will be provided by invited speakers from within the offshore renewable industry on a range of topics including construction methods, seabed preparation and the engineering, procurement and construction of offshore renewables.



This course has been accredited by IMarEST for Continuing Professional Development.



Education to degree level in engineering, physical or mathematical science is a pre- requisite to this course. Background knowledge of the offshore renewable sector including, for example, a wider appreciation of the general types of wind, wave and flow energy converters would also be beneficial.
