Marine-i will host a ‘Meet the Buyer’ workshop on 24 January to showcase the development of AMOG Consulting Ltd’s Wave Energy Converter concept.

This one-third scale device will be tested at a site in Falmouth Bay, UK, in summer 2019, following testing at the COAST laboratory at University of Plymouth and fabrication within the Cornwall Marine Enterprise zone. The workshop will cover some of the challenges faced in the development of the technology, demonstrating lessons learned and opening discussion amongst industry members to help overcome any limitations and highlight commercial opportunities.

Prof Andrew Potts, CEO and founder of AMOG, said: "The workshop will be a fantastic opportunity for us to lay out the longer term needs of the supply chain from a developer's perspective, as well as giving an opportunity for members of the supply chain to become more familiar with AMOG and vice versa.”

Business opportunities

Dr George Crossley of the University of Exeter, who is coordinating the event, said businesses will “have the opportunity to be invited to tender for deployment, operations and maintenance work on this wave energy device as well as understand the longer term next generation needs.”

Part funded by the European Regional Development Fund, Marine-i was set up to promote marine innovation in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly. It has provided funding to AMOG to support the assembly and testing of the new device in Cornwall.

This workshop will be hosted at the National Maritime Museum, Falmouth and is free to attend.
