Wave and Tidal

Our current wave and tidal innovation projects for the Marine Renewables sector 

Mass of Water Turbine (MOWT)

Mass of Water Turbine, MOWT has been designed by Ecosse IP to harness kinetic energy from slow-moving water. 

The patent-pending technology offers a cost-effective method of generating energy from water and can be located in rivers, estuaries and subsea environments.

MOWT is available in different sizes to meet specific market requirements, the current river version weighs less than 1te and measures 5m long x 1m high.  Additional modules can be added to increase both its length and width.   Larger utility-scale MOWTs are planned that will have a power output of several megawatts.

MOWT technology has applications in a range of market sectors including:

  • Offshore oil and gas
  • Utilities
  • Renewable energy
  • Aquaculture
  • Marine
  • Defence

Benefits

  • Cost-effective energy generation
  • Harness energy from slow-moving water
  • Multiple applications; powering subsea assets, supplying energy to local communities, an alternative to tidal barrages and more
  • Range of sizes available
  • Minimal environmental impact
  • MOWT is easily and cost-effectively installed

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.
