Project: Knowledge Exchange

Project Details

Description

This project represents the first stage in the development of a new and revolutionary commercial scale Wave Energy Converter (WEC). The concept is based on a very innovative compressible rubber hydrodynamic subsystem and overlying hydraulic off take system. This project will use modelling tool to analyse a simplified model of the WEC.

Notes

The project receives funding support from both Scottish Funding Council and Ocean Wave Technologies Limited
