  • About us (11/26/2020) -
  • Internship at COER (11/26/2020) - COER are currently involved in an EU Horizon 2020 project (LiftWEC), which involves the development of a novel wave energy converter whose primary coupling with the waves is through the generation of hydrodynamic lift on a rotating hydrofoil. COER’s work package deals specifically with control strategy development. The internship on offer would explore some interesting […]

  • LiftWEC, an EU Horizon 2020 Programme. (9/1/2020) - COER are one of the consortium members of LiftWEC,  a European research project funded by the Horizon 2020 Programme. The project will develop a novel type of Wave Energy Converter, called the LiftWEC, which uses hydrodynamic lift forces to extract wave energy using a rotating hydrofoil. The first LiftWEC newsletter is out.  To find out […]
  • New Paper! (7/14/2020) - Our new paper proposes a non-linear vibro-impact mechanism, integrated inside a semi-submerged cylindrical buoy to form a self-contained and self-referenced vibro-impact wave energy converter (VIWEC), for performance enhancement. by Bingyong Guo and John Ringwood.
