The MORE project: Next-generation tests to develop resilient materials for offshore renewable energy devices

The MORE project (Next Generation Marine Materials for Resilient Offshore Renewable Energy Devices) is pleased to announce it has received funding from the Clean Energy Transition Partnership (CETP) program and its national funding partners. 

The CETPartnership is a multilateral and strategic partnership of national and regional research, development, and innovation (RDI) programmes in European Member States and Associated Countries, aiming to boost and accelerate the energy transition and to support the implementation of the European Strategic Energy Technology Plan (SET Plan).

The MORE project is an innovative initiative aimed at creating a new robust methodology with improved tools for material selection and validation and announces its groundbreaking approach to harmonize testing procedures.

The project's methodology will consider tribocorrosion (wear accelerated by corrosion) and multi-degradation (tribocorrosion accelerated by fatigue), degradation mechanisms highly affecting the field. This brand-new material selection methodology for the renewable energy sector is a significant improvement over the current incomplete conventional material selection and validation process.
