AWS Ocean Energy has hailed a “critical milestone” in the development of its prototype wave energy converter. The Inverness-based marine energy systems company expects to start commissioning and dry-testing the 16-kilowatt Archimedes Waveswing in early July after two major sub-assemblies were joined together. The machine, which is moored sub-sea and reacts to changes in pressure caused by passing waves, has been developed for remote power applications, such as subsea oilfield assets.

AWS Ocean Energy hailed the move after the two major sub-assemblies making up its Archimedes Waveswing wave energy converter were joined together. Final hook-up of the internal systems is now under way at Malin Marine in Glasgow and AWS expects to start commissioning and dry-testing early next month, before deployment at the European Marine Energy Centre (EMEC) in Orkney later in the year.
