A new wave energy converter, developed by Inverness-based AWS Ocean Energy, has arrived in Orkney ahead of its imminent deployment at the European Marine Energy Centre (EMEC). The 16 kW Archimedes Waveswing arrived at Hatston Pier, Kirkwall on Tuesday evening, 25 January 2022, before being transported to Copland’s Dock in Stromness where it will be readied for deployment at EMEC’s Scapa Flow test site in February.Read More
Ocean Demo - 海洋能源試點農場和支持技術的示範計劃
The existing terrestrial supply for renewables is already market-driven, whereas Ocean Energy (OE) is untapped. Having advanced single device OE deployments, FORESEA has identified a key market failure relating to the first multi-device OE farms; this is the point when risks and capital requirements are highest, hence market intervention is now most needed to realise the NWE OE potential.
Ocean DEMO will address this market failure via 3 key elements:
- Prove investability with investors by demonstrating and de-risking the most promising OE generating technologies in multi-device farm configuration.
- Develop an active supply chain that invests in dedicated OE sub-systems and components.
- Create a supportive policy environment for OE by providing governments with confidence in OE and highlighting OE's economic benefits.
- Demonstrate investability of OE with at least 15 investors that provide debt and project finance to raise awareness & promote the uptake of OE.
- Create a more active and invested supply chain to help reduce technical risk of OE and advance the TRL of dedicated OE sub-systems and components.
- Operation of 2 OE deployments in multi-device farm configuration in NWE connected to the European electricity grid.
- Advance 15 cross cutting low carbon technologies to near to commercial readiness.
- 20 dedicated OE products
- 100MW of OE installed capacity

Mocean Energy’s Blue X wave energy machine has returned to dock after a successful five-month test period at sea. In the last few days the 20-metre long, 38-tonne wave machine has been towed from EMEC’s Scapa Flow test site to Kirkwall and has been lifted onto Hatston Pier, where it will be cleaned, inspected, and maintained until next year’s testing programme commences. The innovative 10kW prototype began its test phase in mid-June and since then has completed 154 days at sea, delivering steady outputs of up to 5 kW and safe instantaneous peaks of 30 kW, and operating in sea states up to 2.3 meters maximum wave height.Read More
A supportive policy environment at national level is necessary for the deployment of ocean energy multi-device farms. The Interreg NWE Ocean DEMO project is working actively with national governments in North-Western Europe to create policies that will enable the immense potential of ocean energy.Read More

從波生成清潔能源的前景moved a step closer as Mocean Energy commenced testing of their Blue X wave energy prototype at the European Marine Energy Centre (EMEC) in Orkney. In the last few days the 20-metre long, 38-tonne wave machine has been towed from Kirkwall to EMEC’s Scapa Flow test site where it has been successfully moored and commissioned for initial sea trials. Later this summer the Blue X will be moved to EMEC’s grid connected wave test site at Billia Croo on the west coast of Orkney, where it will go through its paces in more rigorous full sea conditions.Read More
