€ 9 million granted for renewable offshore platform MUSICA

SINN Power is part of the research project MUSICA that is granted € 9 million to build and test a floating renewable offshore platform. The MaREI center for Marine and Renewable Energy takes the lead and is supported by a consortium of 15 European participants.

Until today, small island states depend on expensive and climate damaging diesel generators for a reliable energy supply. Under the lead of MaREI's Gordon Dalton, MUSICA (Multiple Use of Space for Island Clean Autonomity) proposes a solution to provide a stable, cost-efficient and renewable energy mix to support small island states.


The pilot project will provide a floating offshore platform consisting of various innovative technologies to ensure an affordable alternative of renewable energy, clean water and food supply.

MUSICA has been rewarded a € 9 million grant from Horizon 2020, a framework supported by the European Union for research and innovation. The project will be kicked off in 2020. Over the next five years MUSICA and its participants will design, built and test the renewable off-shore platform on small islands under the lead of MaREI center for Marine and Renewable Energy.


The goal is to ensure a future-proof economic and ecological solution for the reliable supply of small island states.

SINN Power supports the team with its innovative wave energy technology and outstanding know-how in the maritime environment and industry. SINN Power will install two single modules attached to the platform to produce wave energy. Waves naturally have a higher continuity and energy density compared to wind and solar energy, which makes this technology a fundamental addition that provides reliable power generation at all times, independently of day and night.

The German wave energy technology developer will install two single modules attached to the platform to produce wave energy, similar to its installation in Heraklion, Greece.

This project is another important step towards commercializing the SINN Power wave energy converter, to supply people worldwide with renewable energy from ocean waves.
