Advanced Rotational Moulding for Ocean Renewables (ARMOR)
Haydale Composite Solutions Ltd
Carbon Trust Advisory Ltd, Crompton Moulding Ltd, Wave Venture Ltd
The Advanced Rotational Moulding for Ocean Renewables (ARMOR) project aimed to reduce the capital cost of device structures by circa 45% in order to create a step change in the levelised cost of energy for wave energy converters.
Its unique selling point is that it is both technology and solution agnostic bringing the widest solution of patented rotational moulding composites (from strength enhancing carbon and graphene nano additives to unique anti-fouling composites and integrated ‘health monitoring’ self sensing polymers) to the most appropriate device concepts while ensuring the solution is as broadly, commercially applicable as possible.
