The purpose of this report is to provide a description of the current design for the Waveswing™ technology (now known as Waveswing™ MK IV) and to provide a TRL assessment of the major sub-systems, together with an assessment of AWS Ocean Energy’s confidence of achieving TRL 9 for that system. The report also provides an assessment of the overall TPL of the system.

This information is intended to provide a snap-shot of the current state-of-the-art in relation to the Waveswing™ technology.

This report is one of a suite of reports provided to WES and the reader is recommended to read AWS Ocean report 15-001 AWS Wave Power Development Experience to further understand the background to the development of the Archimedes Waveswing™ technology.
