About The Event

Come and learn about waves as an alternative energy source in Western Australia and the exiting research conducted at the Marine Energy Research Australia (MERA). MERA undertakes critical research to commercialise renewable energy from the oceans. MERA announced last year the launch of the M4 project, a non-commercial  demonstration wave energy attenuator that will be deployed in King George Sound, Albany. 

To reduce the cost of foundations in energy projects, the ‘Geotechnics /  Foundation Design’ program conducts research to develop foundation solutions that meet the specific requirements of the marine renewable  industry. Learn more about helical anchor solutions to provide a cost effective anchoring system at low carbon  footprint. Their installation and sustainability under the rough  environmental loading conditions offshore are being investigating at the National  Geotechnical Centrifuge Facility (NGCF), a world leading modelling facility in offshore geomechanics.
