The HMRC will provide support with the hydrodynamic modeling of the containment, as well as engineering support on ocean energy implementation.

The Hydraulics and Maritime Research Centre at University College Cork was established in 1979. It is a centre of excellence within Ireland for Ocean Renewables and Coastal Engineering providing support to the maritime industry as well as fundamental research and development

The staff at the HMRC have been selected from a wide range of engineering backgrounds; including civil, environmental, electrical and electronic, mechanical, aeronautical and oceanographic. This provides a diverse assortment of experience and skills to explore the multi disciplinary technology. Further growth is expected over the next few months, taking on a number of Post-doctoral researchers, engineers and PhD students. The Centre, which is principally a dedicated research facility, also offers a teaching and education function. It houses the only facilities for wave simulation in Ireland with a Wave Flume and an Ocean Wave Basin.
