Welcome on the European project Mer-Innovate website! This project is co-funded by European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) under the European Cross-border Cooperation Programme INTERREG IVA France (Channel) – England.

Summary of the project:

The Mer-Innovate project is a Franco-British collaboration that aims to address the cost of maintenance programmes of assets at sea (Marine Renewables) through the development of new procedures, protocols and modeling tools.  Through the use of these project outputs, the Marine Renewable sector will be able to deploy more intelligent maintenance strategies and lower the number of unnecessary intervention exercises at sea.  Reduced operations to offshore assets will also reduce the impact on the environment programs and contribute to a lower operational cost for these offshore installations.

The Mer-Innovate consortium will also be investigating the development e-maintenance ICT tools, which includes the decision support systems, which will be freely disseminated to the renewable marine energy community.

A series of joint activities will be held to promote the growth of a stakeholders’ network and encourage the collaboration between UK and French organisations, spot opportunities and bring the research bases into clustering relationship with the industrialists.  Of particular interest will be the growth of SME opportunities within the regional supply chain for the renewable market place.
