A&P Falmouth & Seatricity have been shortlisted for the Best Renewable Energy Scheme in the SW Green Energy Awards 2014 for the Oceanus II wave energy device.
Earlier this year A&P Falmouth completed Seatricity’s Oceanus II, which is the first device to be deployed at Cornwall’s offshore renewable energy test facility WaveHub.
A&P has been part of the development team from concept design to final build.
The system sees energy provided by pressurized sea water being pumped through a motor to convert into electrical power. A desalinization process is also attainable, and the aim is for an array of 60 devices to deliver 10 MW of sustainable power – enough for 10,000 homes.
The SW Green Energy Awards Ceremony takes place in Bath Assembly Rooms on 25th November 2014.
