These reports were produced for Wave Energy Scotland (WES) by Aquamarine Power Ltd as a contribution to ‘Project Know-How’. ‘Project Know-How’ is an on-going body of work by WES designed to capture knowledge and key operational experiences from the wave energy sector in Scotland, and in particular the technology development companies based here. This experience is being shared, to avoid others having to go through the same learning exercise.
The Aquamarine Power Limited Know-How reports cover the experiences from the development and installation of the Oyster 1 and Oyster 800 Wave Energy Converters (WECs) at EMEC in Orkney, and include topics such as offshore operations; cathodic protection; supply chain experiences; scaled tank testing and the lessons learnt which lead to maintainability improvements. The Overview document provides a brief synopsis of each of the documents produced by Aquamarine Power, and also includes the high level summaries which act as a ‘sign post’ for the reader.
Note that additional reports, documents and data files referenced here and in the deliverables may not be currently available.
