UMACK Project

The UMACK Project (Universal Mooring, Anchor & Connectivity Kit) is a new, ground-breaking mooring, anchoring and quick connect solution optimized for marine energy systems.

The innovative technology is being developed as a universal and adaptable solution for a broad range of marine energy applications and seabed types. It presents a step change in technology for the ocean energy space addressing the affordability, durability and reliability of marine power systems mooring and anchoring.

The initiative is being led by an European consortium including geotechnical specialist Ternan Energy, wave and tidal energy developers CorPower Ocean and Sustainable Marine, mooring experts TTI Marine Renewables, EMEC (European Marine Energy Centre) and marine renewable energy modelling experts from the University of Edinburgh.

Additional support is being delivered through a series of collaborations with world-class organisations including the Fraunhofer Institute for Wind Energy System (IWES), the Test Centre for Support Structures (TTH) of the Leibniz University of Hanover, Georisk & Vibration Scandinavia, Dieseko and the University of Dundee

The UMACK Project is financed by Scottish Enterprise and the Swedish Energy Agency with co-funding from the OCEANERA-NET COFUND (via the European Commission under Horizon 2020).
