The University of Western Australia’s Wave Energy Research Centre (WERC), with headquarters in Albany, was established as a knowledge hub for the ocean energy community under the Western Australian Government’s “Royalties for Regions” program. WERC is multi-disciplinary and brings together decades of expertise in offshore engineering to advance renewable ocean energy to the point of commercial viability.
In a “Surface to Seabed” approach to ocean engineering challenges faced by the industry, WERC research is structured into three main interlinked programs: Oceanography / Coastal Processes, Hydrodynamics / Wave-Structure Interaction, Geotechnics / Foundation Design.
