Concept to Deployment

There’s a growing number of device developers based here in Wales, including Minesto, Marine Power Systems and Wave-tricity.

Wales is working in tandem with our developers to assist them from initial device concept to deployment. The ability to directly assist through the development stages to physical deployment has benefitted companies such as Marine Power Systems (a wave device developer) who are receiving continuing support through the project lifecycle.

The company have collaborated with a wide range of universities including Bath, Bristol and Swansea to drive their development forward.

The Deep Green project off the coast of Anglesey is a revolutionary underwater tidal energy converter being developed by Swedish company Minesto. The company has received Agreement for Lease from the Crown Estate as well as Marine License for the deployment of an initial 0.5 MW Deep Green device in 2018. The long-term ambition is to gradually install more devices, gradually expanding the site into a commercial tidal energy array of up to 80MW installed capacity. 

"We are reaching some exciting milestones in the development of our technology, specifically the deployment of a quarter-scale prototype WaveSub in 2016. We are thrilled to be liaising with Astute 2020 for advanced computational modelling of the float." Gareth Stockman, Managing Director, Marine Power Systems
