WES and NSRI’s Online Facility to Aid Bidding for Wave and Tidal Contracts

Wave Energy Scotland (WES) and National Subsea Research Initiative (NSRI) have teamed up to provide an online facility to help subsea supply companies work together in bidding for contracts in wave and tidal energy.

The facility is a new section of NSRI’s online Matchmaker database, designed to help companies find other organisations with the expertise they are looking for.

Tim Hurst, managing director, Wave Energy Scotland said: “This is a very useful partnership that will create dividends for WES. It will facilitate collaborations and improve the number of applications for our current landscaping work. In the long run, it should also help subsea companies to join the wave sector and possibly even the main WES programme.”

Gordon Drummond, project director of NSRI said: “The wave and tidal sectors are less mature in their contribution to energy production, as a result they are currently more expensive than traditional generating resources. This resource presents a huge opportunity for subsea supply chain companies to adapt their technologies and techniques to support the development of large-scale wave and tidal power farms.”

Split into five themes: operations and maintenance; subsea structures; installation; systems; health and safety; and environmental impact, companies can quickly identify how they can support the wave and tidal sectors by selecting their specialisms.
