SMMP Stage 1 Guidance
Wave Energy Scotland Ltd
Wave Energy Scotland’s third call was for Engineering Design Studies into Structural Materials and Manufacturing Processes (SMMP), specifically focused on the construction of the WEC structure and prime mover, which investigate whether it is possible to make a step change impact in LCOE by constructing typical WEC devices from alternative materials.
Proposals were invited for Engineering Design Study relating to Hybrid Structures using rotational moulding of polymers, Elastomers, Concretes, and other alternative materials that could provide a step change in LCOE.
Hybrid Structures, Elastomers and Concretes were selected based on extensive industry research completed as part of earlier landscaping studies.
This package of documents covers the full set of requirements for Stage 1 of this 3-Stage programme, which aims to develop alternative materials for WEC technologies, and also includes slides for presentations given at the inception event, held in August 2016.
An online webinar which outlines the programme can also be viewed here.
Please note; entries into the SMMP Programme are closed. Projects that were originally accepted into Stage 1 have progressed into future stages of the programme through closed competitions.
