DIME project

DIME Webinar

The DIME project is coming to an end. Its objective was to improve the characterisation of extreme breaking sea states by coupling observations and modelling. The main results were presented during a webinar which was held on 15 October.

The programme were as follows:

  • Characterising extreme sea states and breaking waves for the design of ORE converters, objectives of the project and presentation of the various works planned – Jean-François Filipot, France Energies Marines > Replay
  • Wave modelling in extreme conditions – Fabien Leckler, France Energies Marines > Replay
  • Characterising areas of high waves at potential ORE sites – Matthias Delpey, SUEZ Smart & Environmental Solutions > Replay
  • Breaking waves loading on offshore wind turbines – Jean-François Filipot, France Energies Marines > Replay
  • Recommendations for industrial sector – Christophe Maisondieu, Ifremer > Replay
  • Q&A Session > Replay
