Faculty of Mechanical Engineering | "Making Waves"
Street Stand, GRANERIES – Fort St Elmo, Valletta
Friday, 30th September
The Faculty of Mechanical Engineering is making waves, literally. Their model wave basin will be generating waves and crashing them into a mini breakwater. This smashing of waves will help them explain what their new research project FORTRESS (A Floating OffshoRe BreakwaTer for Supporting Marine Renewable Energy around ISlandS), is about. This interesting study supports the idea of a blue economy by looking for efficient energy storage solutions. They will be there to share their thoughts, ideas and findings about marine technologies, such as floating wind and solar devices, aquaculture and electric seafaring vessels.
