TIDAL TESTING FACILITIES


EC-OG SWITCH ON SUBSEA POWER HUB UNIT


EC-OG switched on the Subsea Power Hub (SPH) for the first time earlier this year. The ocean current energy conversion system was successfully installed and is now fully operational


The unit, which is being tested at the European Marine Energy Centre’s (EMEC’s) Shapinsay Sound test site, is currently performing in line with technical predications. The next step is to leave the SPH running 100% autonomously with wireless data monitoring over the summer months.


simplifying datum control. Accuracy and performance are unaffected by changes in water density and atmospheric conditions.


POSITIVE PERFORMANCE


The positive sales performance for the tide gauge portfolio follows a similar rosy picture across all Valeport product sectors as Kevin Edwards, Valeport Sales and Marketing Manager, commented: “We’re at the half way mark in our financial year and we’re delighted to see such an acceleration in sales, we’re ahead of target and production is extremely busy. Not only are we seeing our tide gauge products being incredibly popular at the moment, with us working at full capacity to meet deliveries, but we’ve also seen a significant step change in sales to the oil & gas sector – with SVX2s, IPS and Altimeters reporting strong sales.”

This testing validates the technical capability of the system which has been designed to fulfil the need for cost-effective and reliable subsea power. This ground- breaking subsea hybrid drive system uses a combination of a marine energy convertor coupled directly to a lithium based energy storage system.


Robert Cowman, Engineering Director at EC-OG said: “Although the weather was not on our side, we were still able to successfully complete the installation and commence testing ahead of schedule. The system is performing very well and I’m pleased at how quickly the results are correlating with the theoretical basis for the test. Having a vertical axis turbine, means that the SPH is operating effectively in these unpredictable, sporadic flow conditions.


“Thanks go to the EC-OG team as well as those who have helped us at EMEC, Leask Marine, Castle View and Scottish Enterprise.”
