Wave and Tidal

Our current wave and tidal innovation projects for the Marine Renewables sector are outlined below:

WWM Wave Energy Converter (WWMW)

EIP and Robert Gordon University (RGU) have completed the first phase of development of the WWMW, having secured funding to assist with RGU participation from the Scottish Funding Council (SFC).

WWMW tests indicate 5 Megawatts of power per device, which can be grouped to produce power from a body of water – either for offshore oil platforms/installations, or transferred onshore for utility power production. The power is generated in an accessible, dry environment and exported to end users.

Collaborative university studies have proven the physics and engineering principles; significant steps have been made towards commercialising the technology.

WWM Tidal Energy Converter (WWMT)

The WWMT device uses similar principles, reconfigured for application in tidal areas/rivers. Like EIP’s other products, it is a simple and robust invention, with its efficiency driven by harnessing a large mass of water at low velocity.

The next phases of experimental design will include demonstrating power generation using WWMT in a surface water environment.

Information on additional wave and tidal technologies in development can also be discussed with the team, subject to NDA agreements being in place.
