The VALID project aims to develop a hybrid testing platform for ocean energy technology in cooperation with three wave energy developers. VALID will develop one open and integrated platform for testing critical components and subsystems, including novel test procedures beyond current testing practices based on hybrid testing methods, combining virtual and physical test rigs. The accelerated test means that we can speed up the number of iterations of the system and shorten the necessary testing time prior to an offshore installation which reduces the risk of failure.
