The Marine Institute of Ireland will host a third public information meeting on the proposed upgrades of the Galway Bay Marine and Renewable Energy Test Site.

The meeting is part of the public consultation to ensure full information is provided on the Marine Institute’s foreshore lease application to upgrade test and demonstration facilities at the Galway Bay Marine and Renewable Energy Test Site.

The current lease application outlines plans to upgrade the existing infrastructure and facilitate the deployment of a wider range of marine renewable energy devices and novel sensor technologies at the test site.

The Galway Bay Marine Renewable Energy Test Site has been in operation since 2006 when it was established by the Marine Institute and the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI).

The Marine Institute and SEAI will provide information on the background to the lease application and the scope of the proposed upgrade and address questions raised by the public ahead of the new deadline for submissions, set for August 2, 2016.

The meeting will be held on July 21, 2016, at the Connemara Coast Hotel, Furbo, Galway.
