Newcastle University - Leading the Way in Marine Renewables


NEWCASTLE University's School of Marine Science and Technology not only has a substantial international reputation but is also the largest and broadest-based marine school of its kind in Europe, covering the fields of marine engineering, marine biology, naval architecture, offshore engineering, coastal management and small craft technology.

Its activities embrace teaching at undergraduate and postgraduate levels, research, and extend to services and training to business and industry. Research groups are actively involved in industrial partnerships, which take advantage of the inter-disciplinary expertise available in the school.

The school's current research highlights relating to renewable energy and the environment include: Wind, wave and tidal power research Engineering and seakeeping of wind, wave and tidal power generation equipment during deployment and operation, including logistical implications and, from both marine technology and marine science perspectives, environmental sustainability and offshore energy performance.

Activities are supported by extensive specialist facilities on the Newcastle main campus, including the UK's only operational Cavitation Tunnel as well as a unique Wind Wave Current Tank designed to simulate a range of seastates individually or simultaneously. Model testing is seen as a costeffective key contributor to reducing risk in the product development process.

Our main campus facilities are complemented by the Dove Marine Laboratory located on the coast at Cullercoats, and will be supported by a brand new seagoing Research Vessel, an 18m catamaran designed in-house and currently under construction in Blyth.

Newcastle University is also leading the research in algae biofuels.
