Abstract: The Marine Energy Engineering Centre of Excellence (MEECE) has been part funded by the European Regional Development Fund through the Welsh Government and the participating Higher Education Institutions and by the Swansea Bay Region City Deal.MEECE will provide specialist knowledge, experience and capability for the benefit of the marine energy industry and is delivered by ORE Catapult and four universities. MEECE will provide a centre for collaboration through coordinated, joint-industry / cross-industry approaches, whilst disseminating lessons learned for future projects and improving industry productivity and effectiveness. MEECE will bring the expertise and capabilities of Welsh universities, and of the ORE Catapult, into direct contact with technology developers and their supply chains, supporting more innovation, and capturing and embedding that innovation in Wales. It will be based in Pembroke Port with research staff within the university research teams. This equipment supports a range of projects in the areas of Marine Energy and Coastal Engineering. This directly supports fundamental and applied research in decarbonisation through clean, affordable and secure energy. Prediction and mitigation of coastal change (including sea level rise and extreme events) is a consequence of the climate emergency. The creation of jobs in marine energy and the associated supply chain supports the blue economy.

The Coastal Engineering Laboratory of the College of Engineering heavily contributes to marine renewable energy research and development by testing scale models of new, innovative marine energy devices and support infrastructure such as underwater cables. The laboratory is equipped with state-of-the art wave channel, capacitance type wave gauges, Particle Imaging Velocimeter, a Laser Doppler Velocimeter and a bed profiler.

However, the laboratory lacks the capacity to measure forces on marine energy devices, which is an essential component of marine energy device and infrastructure testing. We will purchase inertial measurement units to track movements and acceleration.
