It follows the initial SEACAMS project, which helped to secure investment by Swedish company Minesto in a PS25m giant underwater kite project off Anglesey.
The SEACAMS project is run by the Universities of Bangor, Swansea and Aberystwyth and is part-funded from the European Regional Development fund through the Welsh European Funding Office, part of the Welsh Government.
Professor Colin Jago, director of SEACAMS and Head of the College of Natural Sciences at Bangor, said: "This development aims to produce a building of high design quality and environmental sustainability which will enhance the environment in the local area.
Extensive work has been carried out by Seacams on the seabed conditions and tidal currents which have been studied by Minesto.
