The MORE project kicks off

Uppdaterat: 1 mars

The official kick off meeting of the MORE project was held as a 2-Days lunch-to-lunch setup on the 14th-15th of February 2024. The meeting was hosted by RISE Research Institutes of Sweden in Borås, Sweden.

Day one focused on getting to know each other through partner presentations and sharing previous knowledge and experiences. All partners presented their organisation as well as the team working in the MORE project. Everyone participated in sharing and discussing expectations to find a common platform to start from and having a clear objective and goal of where the project will be at the end of 2026. Christian von der Ohe, RD&I Manager at GCE NODE, gave a presentation of the work in work package (WP) 2 - Offshore O&G Knowledge transfer. In this WP the offshore O&G experiences from the industries in GCE NODE cluster will be collected and linked to the CorPower and Wavepiston concepts. This knowledge will be the basis for proposing further

development and adaption of the test methods and test equipment or practical industrial use based on the scientific results from the NODE ART project. Possibly also obtain mapping of new potential materials for the systems subcomponents.

Day two started with a short lab tour at the site in Borås. The first stop was at the LSMD (Lab Scale Multi-Degradation) test rig that previously has been developed and used in the NODE ART project. Second stop was at the materials characterization lab, and the last stop was at Product Durability Unit labs (Salt mist lab, Weather-o-Mether/UV-degradation lab, Corrosive gas lab, Marine/Antifouling/Electrochemistry lab).

Following the lab tour, the consortia started up focused group discussion on work packages (WPs) 1 and 3.

The work in WP1 - Selection of subcomponents, is led by Guillaume Unique from CorPower Ocean in strong collaboration with the other "end-user"/renewable energy device developer in the project WavePiston by Kristian Glejbøl. Their tasks involve describing the working conditions with a particular focus on locations,

components, and materials subject to multiple load types and multi-degradation mechanisms.

The work in WP3 - Multi-degradation mechanisms and new materials, is led by NTNU researchers Nuria Espallargas and Hamid Khan Mohammad. This WP will address the modification, upgrade, and harmonization of two multi-degradation test rigs, one at lab scale (at NTNU in Norway) and one at pilot scale (at RISE in Sweden), in order to speed up and scale-up knowledge transfer in the area of material degradation in marine environment.

The Kick-Off meeting gave the MORE project momentum towards the vision of developing a new methodology that can and will be used by many, ultimately assisting with providing a realistic material selection methodology as a common procedure for the entire renewable energy sector.
