Mainstay Marine Solutions, workboat builders and marine engineers in South West Wales, has been awarded a contract from AMOG Consulting Ltd for the construction of its Wave Energy Converter (WEC) technology demonstrator device.

Simple in design, the WEC is tuned to maximise the power from incoming waves by extracting energy from the motion of its pendulum structure.

AMOG is an award-winning team of consulting engineers, project managers and technicians, based in Australia and with offices in the UK, USA and Colombia.

Stewart Graves, Managing Director, commented ‘’Mainstay is delighted to have been awarded the contract with AMOG against EU competition. This exciting project enhances our ever-increasing portfolio of Marine Energy fabrication projects and is great endorsement of our marine engineering capabilities and prospects for the future”.

It is anticipated that by the end of summer 2019, the one-third scale WEC will be deployed and tested at the University of Exeter’s FabTest site in Falmouth, a ‘nursery’ test site for wave energy devices.
