Advanced design tools foroceanenergy systems innovation, development and deployment

Duration: 3 years

Project description

DTOcean produced a first generation of freely available, open-source design tools for wave and tidal energy arrays. These tools have been used on leading tidal and wave energy projects. Built upon this solid foundation, DTOceanPlus will be carried out with a total budget of 8 million euros. DTOceanPlus will develop and demonstrate a suite of 2nd generation advanced design tools for the selection, development and deployment of ocean energy systems. The integrated tools will be demonstrated in the setting of real world technology deployment projects, with access to these projects being provided by the project’s industrial partners.


  • To support the entire technology innovation process, from concept to deployment.
  • To propose advanced design tools for sub-systems, energy capture devices and arrays.
  • To bring tools to TRL6 by demonstration scenarios in real world cases.
  • To make freely available tools as open source to the entire ocean energy sector.
  • To develop an integrated suite of tools that will be a professional user-friendly product.
