Information Day: Ocean Energy - FEA, CFD and Explicit Dynamics

Information Day: Ocean Energy

The sea is a limitless source of power and is a challenging environment, so in order to exploit wave energy commercially there are a number of key components required. We are therefore delighted to invite you to our Information Day on Ocean Energy this April 26th, where we will be covering key components of ocean energy engineering.

This event is free to attend.
