Marine Energy Test Centre

Marine Energy Test Centre (Metcentre) was founded in 2009. It facilitates and assists in the testing of new marine renewable energy technologies, more specifically for offshore wind energy,  under various conditions.

The company manages and controls a 12 km 15 MW sea-cable, laid at a depth up to 200m and located about 13 km west of Karmøy near Hywind.

Metcentre also does meteorological and oceanographic data, both historical and prognostic.
