INDUSTRY SHOWCASE


WAVE ENERGY PROS ARE IN THE UK


Yam Pro Energy UK opened their offices in Edinburgh and started Front End Engineering and Design (FEED) Studies in collaboration with Strathclyde University, Naval Architecture and Ocean Marine Engineering (NAOME) Department, for their first Wave Energy Project in North East Scotland


The FEED study has been supported by Scottish Enterprise under Energy Technology Partnership (ETP) funding.


The company’s innovative wave energy technology overcomes the main challenge within the wave energy industry; cost and reliability. The technology is slightly different than the current norm whereby only the floats are in the sea, mounted to existing manmade structures such as breakwaters, piers or jetties, and the generation system is onshore just like a regular power station.


RELIABILITY This makes it more reliable as 90% of the system (all the expensive generation equipment) is safe in a container, not effected by storms or corrosion factors. Also, it is very cost effective as no vessels, divers or underwater transmission cables are required for installation.


Acrastyle Limited is an engineering company that designs protection and control solutions.


Yam Pro Energy UK has found two ideal sites for their first Project, two big harbour breakwaters suitable for 18MW capacity, with good range of near shore waves, and no grid constraints. Agreements are in place with the Port Authorities who have been very cooperative and enthusiastic to pioneer this idea.


We have earned a unique reputation for superior quality, excellence in electrical engineering and exceptional customer service. Our solutions and services are adapted to provide whatever level of support is needed in order to meet the clients expectations.

This system has been tried and tested in Jaffa Port, Tel Aviv for a year where the results were found to be feasible and financially attractive. Since then Yam Pro’s engineers improved the float shape making the system more efficient. The second generation floats have been tested in MARIN Lab in Netherlands. Now, with Strathclyde University’s


experienced engineering team, this unparalleled system will be optimised for Scottish conditions.


Yam Pro Energy’s 1MW power plant can generate up to 4.1M KWh/annum with 1m average annual wave height working at 42% efficiency which would be enough to generate clean energy for up to 2700 houses/annum. This generation capacity exceeds other comparable wave energy technologies. The reason behind this the unique float shapes and the minimal system losses due to the generation equipment being located in close proximity to the floats.


HUGE POTENTIAL There is huge potential for such technology in Scotland, an indeed any island community. In a separate research study carried out by Strathclyde Renewable Energy Systems and Environment and Offshore Renewable Engineering Master students in May this year, a meticulous comparison method was carried out to identify the best marine renewable technology for island communities and Yam Pro Energy’s system had exceeded expectations to tackle the energy trilemma by being low carbon, security of supply and affordable.


2018 INSTALLATION In parallel to the FEED study, the Company is working towards getting the necessary consents and marine licenses to start installation activities in 2018.
