Today Resolute Marine Energy’s Irish subsidiary, Resolute Marine Limited, was recommended for a Blue-GIFT individual support voucher to test an advanced prototype of its Wave2OTMautonomous wave-powered desalination plant at the PLOCAN test site in the Canary Islands.

In his response to the announcement of the award, RME CEO Bill Staby said, “the Blue-GIFT voucher will help us move more quickly along the path to commercialization.” “We’re really looking forward to working with the team at PLOCAN and to the experience we will gain there in preparation for our first commercial project in Cape Verde.”
