How historic shipwreck exploration is advancing ocean renewable energy

“The data being collected are providing scientists with unique insights into how these wrecks influence physical and biological processes in the ocean; this information is now being used to support the ambitions of the marine renewable energy (MRE) sector via research and development projects with developers.

A number of MRE projects – some being planned, some already under way – aim to capitalize on Wales’ excellent wave and tidal resources to create a sustainable energy supply. To assist in this, scientists at Bangor are now using shipwrecks as models and laboratories for predicting what will happen when key MRE-related infrastructure, such as foundations, turbines and cabling, is placed on the seabed at various locations.”
