Seatricity Oceanus 2 Almost Ready for Redeployment

Seatricity has informed that the winter refit of its Oceanus 2 wave energy convertor is nearing completion.

Over the next few days, Seatricity’s patented hydraulic pump, which was stripped down over the winter for component analysis, will be reassembled at The Cylinder Service Center Ltd of Washington, Tyne & Wear, and is expected to return to Falmouth immediately after Easter. Once back in Cornwall, the pump will be re-installed on the Oceanus 2 float at A&P Falmouth before the complete device is returned to the water for final checks, re-commissioning of the onboard data-gathering telemetry and monitoring systems and then returned to Wave Hub.

“Subject to the successful extension of our berthing agreement with WaveHub, later this year we anticipate adding a second Oceanus 2 device to the site and to test multi-device connectivity which will confirm our preparedness to scale up to provide the UK’s first power generating, revenue earning Wave Energy array,” said the company in a statement.

In the meantime, Seatricity and the European Marine Energy Centre (EMEC) in Orkney will conduct a feasibility study to examine the potential for establishing a second grid connected array at the EMEC test site.
