Wave power partnership with China

Experts the Orkney-based European Marine Energy Centre (EMEC) are to collaborate with their marine energy counterparts from the Ocean University of China (OUC), in Shandong Province, under a new partnership announced by the Scottish Government yesterday.

The OUC, based in the eastern coastal city of Qingdao, has agreed a contract with EMEC which will see staff from the Stromness-based facility assist the university to develop a wave test centre in Shandong.

A Memorandum of Understanding has also been signed to foster closer working relationships between EMEC, the University and Qingdao Municipal Science and Technology Commission.
