Pelamis Wave Power Ltd

Project Lead

Quoceant Ltd

This project contains a number of reports produced for Wave Energy Scotland following the close of Pelamis Wave Power in 2014. The project, originally known as 'Project Secure' was run to capture key learning from Pelamis who developed wave energy converter technology for 15 years and had deployed their attenuator technology in both Portugal and Scotland.

The topics covered by this project relate to some of the areas of R&D undertaken by Pelamis, from numerical modelling, scale model testing and large scale build. 

  • WP1 - Tank Testing and Scale Models
  • WP2 - Power Take Off
  • WP3 - Mooring and Connection Systems
  • WP4 - Simulation and Modelling
  • WP5 - Economics

The document 'Project Overview (PWP)' available to download here acts as a signpost to the comprehensive set of documents available as part of this project.

It is worth noting that the O&M Simulation Tool was originally developed with Pelamis and so some of the examples for the Tool include references to the technology. 


Additional reports, documents and data files referenced here may not be publicly available.
