Novel WEC Project

February 2016

We were awarded £256k from Wave Energy of Scotland (WES) to optimise the device for grid-scale applicaitons.

The project seeks to paramaterise the CCell WEC and through successive numerical simulations optimise its shape for a range of sea conditions representative of the reference site, seeking to minimise both CAPEX and OPEX costs for a given power output.

To validate the numerical models, the project will also undertake a range of laboratory studies on three curved paddles, and also on a flat paddle, with the latter forming a base`line for comparison.
