Wave energy – technology
Marine Power Systems will be working with Quoceant on the detailed design of their innovative wave energy converter technology.
This follows the successful preliminary design of the power take off system, also undertaken by Quoceant. The engineering team at Quoceant bring huge depth and breadth of experience and a long history of working on marine energy projects where they have proven their ability to take projects from first concepts, through detailed design to deployment and operation.
The scope of work with Quoceant covers the detailed design of the wave energy convertor device and they will act as owners engineer to oversee the procurement, manufacture, assembly, installation and operation of the wave energy convertor at the Biscay Marine Energy Platform (BiMEP) site in northern Spain.
The wave energy converter has a unique wave energy capture mechanism – directly and efficiently harnessing both the heave and surge energy of the wave. Each energy absorber can capture over a megawatt of power, and each device has multiple absorbers, leading to significant multi megawatt power output per machine.
Marine Power Systems have developed a flexible floating platform technology that is the only solution of its type that can be configured to harness wind and wave energy either as a combined solution or on their own in deep water. Whilst the market for their technology is utility scale, grid connected farms, additional markets include oil and gas platform electrification and the growing hydrogen economy.
