Advanced Rotational Moulding for Wave Energy Technologies (ARMWET)
Rototek Ltd, Wave Venture Ltd
The rotational moulding process offers a range of crucial benefits to WEC designers that could initiate a step-change impact in LCoE. This targeted project assessed the potential application of new and existing technologies to overcome these hurdles. It investigated hybrid rotationally moulded structures with concrete ballast material that contributes to the strength of the structure and innovative new design concepts for accepting point loads and preventing buckling of the rotationally moulded structures.
