RINA/IMarEST Technical Presentation: Harnessing Energy from Oceans

On the 19th of May 2022, Prof. Atilla Incecik gave a RINA/IMarEST presentation describing primary energy consumption by fuel types, where the locations of global deep-water oil and gas reserves were illustrated, discussing different types of oil and gas exploration and production platforms and their design principles. Held within the Faculty of Engineering at the University of Malta, the presentation was concluded by describing offshore renewable energy devices and some recent floating wind turbine installations in Scotland.
