Blue Power Take Off
Blue Power Energy Ltd
Energy Technology Centre Ltd
The Blue Power PTO has the opportunity of achieving early and reliable deployment in conjunction with a range of WEC designs by utilising a range of existing hardware components and subsystems in this novel application. A key outcome of the project is a detailed performance characterisation of the PTO and, following this, the development of control strategies to ensure that the versatility of the PTO can be fully exploited for different WEC designs.
During the execution of the project, the particular advantages of the Blue Power PTO in providing rectified and smoothed power has been further developed to deliver a compact design which will provide a significant advance in the performance, reliability, affordability and LCOE of WEC devices.
