MORE (Next Generation Marine Materials for Resilient Offshore Renewable Energy Devices) proposes the creation of a new robust methodology with improved tools for material selection and validation to harmonize testing procedures capable of generating the next generation of materials for Offshore Renewable Energy (ORE) devices, to overcome the present energy and environmental challenges.

The MORE project will focus on harmonizing small- and large-scale multi-degradation rigs, to create a fast track for validation of materials, starting from, but not limited to, metallic materials and metal coatings typically suffering tribocorrosion and multi-degradation (passive metals), to enable the
industrial uptake of these methods and improve the systems’ reliability and lifetime. MORE will demonstrate a multi-degradation validation pathway for materials and subcomponents to be used as a case study in the offshore renewable energy sector. While innovative offshore renewable energy
device technologies are gaining popularity, operating them in harsh marine environment is a complex and challenging process that jeopardizes the deployment of these very important technologies for the future generations.

Overall aim and objectives

The main objective of MORE is to develop, demonstrate and validate full transferability, harmonization and reproducibility of multi-degradation results validated at laboratory level (TRL4), through subcomponent level by accelerated multi-degradation pilot testing (TRL5, TRL6), to potential demonstration in a relevant industrial environment for the user cases (TRL7).

The findings will be summarized in the creation of Guidelines or Recommended Practice that can be further used by any other Offshore Renewable Energy device manufacturer. This will make materials’ development for the Renewable Energy technology faster and more efficient and based on the powerful multi-degradation methodology. This main objective is well aligned with the Call Module 2.2 Objective "Increase the conversion of energy to power and/or technology performance and/or lifetime by use of new materials".
