A project in Scotland to develop a system that converts wave movement into electricity has been awarded £2.5m in funding by Wave Energy Scotland (WES). The magnetic gear project is led by Banchory-based Ecosse Subsea Systems in collaboration with Bathwick Electrical Design Ltd, Supply Design Ltd and Pure Marine Gen Ltd. The University of Edinburgh and Applied Renewables Research Ltd have been sub-contracted to provide additional support. The project has been selected by WES for the final stage of its Power Take Off (PTO) programme, aimed at developing solutions to convert the movement of waves into electricity. The system is being developed to suit a variety of wave energy converters.
