ANCHORING & MOORINGS WAVESUB WAVE ENERGY CONVERTER


The revolutionary WaveSub Wave Energy Converter developed by the company is a unique, patent protected, award winning device. The WaveSub solves the four main challenges facing all developers looking to capture wave energy.


1. Developing efficient energy capture in any sea condition


2. Securing the technology’s long- term survivability in a harsh environment


3. Ensuring the devices are easy to deploy, recover and service


4. Guaranteeing they are cost efficient to build in relation to the power they produce


RELIABLE RENEWABLE ENERGY SOURCE The WaveSub will provide a reliable renewable energy source through harnessing the energy from ocean waves. The technology being developed by MPS has huge potential to contribute to energy security targets and will reduce reliance on unpredictable and non- renewable energy supplies.


The fabrication of the 1:4 scale WaveSub is an important step in the journey towards commercialisation of the project. The device is 15metres long, 10metres wide and 2.5metres tall. A full scale, single device will be 40metres long, showing the scale of the technology being developed.


TESTING


Ahead of testing at FaBTest, Falmouth MPS carried our detailed testing and analysis of seabed sediment. This was completed in order to gain a full understanding of the site where the anchors of the WaveSub device will be placed, and to inform the final anchoring specification for the WaveSub.


INNOVATIVE SURVIVABILITY MECHANISM Due to WaveSub’s innovative survivability mechanism, the loads transmitted to the mooring system are significantly reduced, allowing the company to achieve a highly cost effective solution in terms of all mooring system components. This plays a key part in contributing to a low Levelised Cost of Energy, which is vital to reaching commercialisation.


HUGE POTENTIAL TO


CONTRIBUTE TO ENERGY SECURITY TARGETS


FUNDING


MPS’ WaveSub project has been part- funded by the European Regional Development Fund through the Welsh Government, with MPS receiving a £2 million grant in October 2015.
