Video of Cable Installation in Galway Bay Now Available

The Marine Institute recently commissioned a video showing the installation of the subsea power and data cable at the Ocean Energy Testbed in Galway Bay.  It features interviews with representatives from the partnering institutions, including The Marine Institute and the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI) SmartBay Ltd, MarEI (UCC) and Dublin City University. The cable provides critical infrastructure to support the trial and validation of novel sensors and prototype wave energy equipment within a real-world marine environment. The installation is taking place in several phases and the observatory is expected to be fully operational by September 2015.
