The main learning from this book is that innovators, designers, developers, original equipment manufacturer (OEMs) and operators of marine energy converter (MEC) farms need to be trained in the predictive reliability estimation of MECs and be competent to judge between different designs, particularly in respect of their maintainability in the field. There must be an increase in training, to improve the testing of devices and prototype sub-assemblies.
